Notre Dame fans surely remember Deon Butler, the Penn State wide receiver who was part of two Nittany Lions teams that played the Irish.
Butler didn't do much in either game against Notre Dame: one catch for 16 yards against the Irish in 2007 and two catches for 14 yards and a touchdown in 2006. Yet he's here, trying to find a place in the NFL in the Jack Swarbrick Suite (actually the Baker & Daniels Club inside Lucas Oil Stadium).
"I'm a guy that's open to everything," Butler said. "I kind of think that's been the trademark throughout my career. I came in as a DB and they wanted me to switch to wideout, whatever it takes to win, I go to wideout.
"I played outside most of that time. I go to the All-Star game and teams want to see me in the slot so they try me in the slot. No problem. In the East-West game I played in the slot pretty much the whole time pretty much. I'm open to wherever you want me to make plays to win games."
Playing in the East-West game was a good transition for the 5-foot-10, 168-pound Butler, who joked that he had a "great warmup" playing USC in the Rose Bowl, calling the Trojans a virtual all-star team.
"The guys at the all-star game and the talent got better but the guys, just physically, looked the part, is the big difference," Butler said. "There weren't many guys like me running around. Every other receiver on the team was 6-3, 6-4, big guys, so everyone physically looks the part but it's just about playing football."
