I have been interested to see MANY mocks where Manti T'eo falls to the middle/late 2nd..

If he is there, what do you do?

I guess it depends who we take at 8 and who is left on the board, but in the most recent WALTERFOOTBALL draft, with Barkley off the board I think I would take T'eo..

To me the big question is.. Does the slow 40 or weird story REALLY matter, or is his game tape enough to make him worth it?

The follow up question is.. Was his game tape really that great? or was it overhyped due to his persona and reputation?


All I know is, there is a good chance a guy we once thought we had NO SHOT AT at 8 could be available at 41..

I would certainly consider..


Thoughts?

I would take him if we take QB at 8 and if Justin Hunter is already gone. Hunter is the only WR I'd take over Te'o.

I'd be happy with

1) Geno Smith (or insert your favorite QB here)
2) Te'o
3) BPA @ WR

It's definitely a pick to seriously consider but not a "must". There is going to be a lot of good players on the board there.

I would take him at 41 in a heartbeat. No question.

A subpar 40 time isn't really all that important, at least not for an ILB. Look at James Laurinaitis (my previous man-crush lol). I believe he ran a 4.82 at the combine, and in the mid 4.7 range at his pro day, which made everyone move him down draft boards. Turns out it didn't matter at all. He's still a good ILB, and Te'o will be better.

As far as his game tape, I watched just about every play of his this past season, and I can tell you that all the hype surrounding him was warranted. His instincts are second to none, and other than the NC game, he was as solid a defensive player as anyone else in NCAA. Here's the thing though, ND's defense as a whole was great all year, other than the NC game. So my question is, was Te'o bad in that game, or was Bama's offense just THAT good. Maybe a little of both, but the fact of the matter is that Bama made a very good ND defense look silly that game, not just Te'o.

Anyhow, back to the topic at hand, yes. If Te'o is there at 41, I would take him over anyone else. I'd actually be happy to trade up to the 25-32 range if he's still there at that point.

Like you said, depending on who we take at 8 effects this. I would take him if we took a QB at 8 but if we took say Patterson or Milliner then we'd HAVE to take a QB in round two over anyone else.

Probably not- I would take other linebackers ahead of that would still be on the board.

I would take Te'o at 41 regardless of who we took at 8.

Agreed. Te'o is going to be a good player in the NFL, he is just getting a bum rap for the BS he was involved in.

I think he is the type of player we could really use on defense. a no nonsense, get the job done LB. I can't wait for the day when our run defense isn't one of the worst in the league. I think he would help get us out of that year in and year out hole.

If we draft a QB in 1st I'd be OK with Te'o at 41. Our 1st round pick will dictate the rest of our draft IMO

Wouldn't hate it because he reminds me of poz in a lot of ways. Sure tackler and smart player. He will be in the right spot down field. Won't get many stuffs on the line and does get lost when rushing in. Will get his hands on a couple of balls but most of his interceptions have come on terrible reads by mediocre quarterbacks. Could helpbut doubt he will terrorize teams in anyway.
