Manti Te'o, smaller than expected at 241, runs unofficially a 4.81 40.
im telling you this guy is very overated, he will be servicable but nothing exceptional in the NFL
I lost count of how many millions of dollars this kid has lost over the last 2 months.
Just remember, Burfict looked like a fool and lost millions.
And he had one hell of a rookie year.
True....I definitely think Te'o will play in the league and probably be pretty good, not unlike Burfict in that sense. But the perception by most (that's counting the "experts" and the arm-chair GM crowd) around bowl season was that he was a lock for a top 5-10 pick. Factor in how badly he looked against Bama in the BCS Championship game, the whole "catfish" debacle shortly thereafter and now a fairly mediocre combine performance...I wouldn't be shocked if he lasted until the 3rd/4th round.
Given where he started, that's a pretty steep fall in a short period of time.
