    Ever heard of a smokescreen? With as knowledgeable about the draft as you think you are I'm sure you have. If I was a team in the late 20's I'd be saying the same thing hoping he falls to us.

    I understand what you're saying. He is definitely not going to be a top 5 pick and probably not a top 10 anymore, but he is definitely a top 15 talent. Due to the devaluation of the ILB, he won't be drafted that high, but that doesn't mean he isn't that talented. I'd say he's the best linebacker in the draft.

      Alright. Believe what you want.

      Ive seen enough of him on film to know he is nowhere near the prospect of Kuehcly. He is a mid-late 1st round pick. Never was close to being a top 10 talent. And he sure as hell is not "definitely a top 15 talent"


      Being the best middle linebacker in an incredibly weak middle linebacker draft (and really no blue chip guys at any position) isnt all that impressive.

      Really his only competition is a 5'11 Minter, or a converted safety in Ogletree.

      Just like Te'o being nominated for the Heisman, it wasent because Te'o was such a great player, its because he played on a good team and there was almost no competition in the race. They ended up essentially being forced to give it to a redshirt freshman.

If he was fooled by this and didn't know, I can see where a college kid who is doing nothing but playing football and going to class found some relief by forming a relationship with someone online. You have to understand how little free time these kids have. He may have just been looking for an outlet and allowed himself to be fooled.
          This. 100%.

          • Manti Te'o could fall to the Giants

            Alot depends on what shakes out in this virtual girlfriend hoax.

            But given the shellacking that Alabama laid on the ND defense, coupled with this hoax scandal, I don't see a top 10 team selecting this dude.

            His character elevated what was really a mid-1st pick, and that's gone now.

                    After the watching the BCS title, and now this fake girlfriend BS, I don't know if this guy is NFL material. Could be a huge bust......I honestly don't know anymore.

                    Stick this rube in the NYC market... it could get really stupid.

                    • We need a Linebacker an if ogletree is not there which he wont be cuz the Steelers will draft a linebacker. Te'o would be an upgrade over Blackburn.

                          • Think hey should go DE in the first. Also, just don't know if he is better than some other LB's that might be one board.

                            • Are you guys kidding me? Did you watch the Championship game vs an low end NFL caliber offense? He will be facing Lacy and all those Olinemen, and others much better in the NFL.

                              Ogletree or DE or OL

                              No ManLie Te'o PLEASE

                                They would draft him and TC wouldn't play him - he is a rookie
