The Top 10 Huskies — Number Two

We’re almost to the end of our countdown — I’m starting to feel a bit like Casey Kasem here — and as some of you have figured out (or probably all of you, but I haven’t really taken a poll) it’s getting pretty obvious now.
By virtue of being named the team’s defensive player of the year last season and also being regarded as the top senior NFL prospect on the team, DE Daniel Te’o-Nesheim gets the second spot on this list, surely one of the top honors he’s ever received.
In all seriousness, Te’o-Nesheim was a rare light in the darkness of last season for the Huskies, one player whose effort could never be questioned.
He finished fifth on the team with 65 tackles and led the Huskies with 11.5 tackles for a loss and eight sacks, both of which ranked among the leaders in the Pac-10 last year (11th and sixth, respectively).
Te’o-Nesheim also emerged as something of a team leader last season, gradually evolving from a player with a reputation for not saying much when he arrived (a maturation I detailed a little in this story prior to last season). He was named the team’s Most Inspirational Player at the end of the season in a vote by his teammates, evidence of his leadership value to the
He’s also moving his way up the draft charts, listed this week by CBSSports.com as the 113th best prospect for the 2010 Draft, the highest for any Husky.
If some of the other linemen mature quickly this year, forcing opponents to take some attention away from Te’o-Nesheim, he could put up even bigger numbers in 2009.
