    That game crushed Te'o's stock.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

      BlueSanta: If you're saying Alabama's offensive strategy didn't place a priority on Te'o, you are utterly mistaken. I'll admit speculation, but I will not be so naive to think otherwise.
      I am saying that. Bama did the same thing they do in every game. They put a helmet on guys who can make the tackle, including Te'o. The difference was that NDs dline, which up until this game, was so good at keeping those blockers off Te'o failed to do so. Te'o had to, for the 1st time all season, deal with blockers on a regular basis. Bama did not gameplan for Te'o they gameplanned to block like they always do.

      I did not see anyone else being left unblocked in favor of blocking Te'o. I did snot see a bunch of Te'o Double teams. What I saw was guys getting to te'o to block him, and thta was something ND was entirely unused to seeing since they arent used to having their Dline dominated.

        Agreed.

          I agree.

          My prediction is that he will be there at 19 and we will pass.

            You underestimate the stupidity of some teams. I just have the gut feeling one of the bottom dwellers already has their heart set for this kid to "clean" their franchise with good character.

              Only if he has an amazing Combine in combination with a good showing in the Shrine Game / Senior Bowl.

              Those three things (Bowl game, Combine and Senior / Shrine) are the draft setters.

              That and I don't think most teams in today's NFL would take a chance on a LBer in the first unless they look like a lock.

              That and Al Davis died.

                I don't know man...not every team values the combine as much as some of us do. You don't think it's possible at all for some team in the top 10 or even 15 to make a reach on a player? Te'o is the PERFECT candidate for a reach selection.

                  If Te'o is available..

                  http://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com...tions-steelers Says his stock might have plummeted to the 17 spot and might take another blow depending on the senior bowl and combine. If he were to reach 19, would you personally take the risk?

                    I might, but I don't think that Reese would take him there. Just my opinion.

                      • I wouldn't. Alabama is basically an low end NFL caliber offense. And did you see how they abused him?

                        The Problem is the Oline, PERIOD

                        • Nothing against Te'o but I think there are more positions of impact that we need to address 1st, particularly DE or CB.

                          There is no doubt our LB core underperformed this year and we need to swap out some parts. But, you could put Butkis, Lewis, or any MLB in our lineup and we wont be able to stop the pass if we cant generate more of a passrush or cover a guy for 3 seconds.

                          • Yes.. I take Te'o at #19, would solve our MLB issues

                            • He was doing things that Te'O just could not do vs Bama.

                                U don't think Te'O is Impact? I mean, hes impacting the run game, the pass game and hes got the presence u feel would thrive in NYC... I think hes one of the biggest impact players in this draft, just like Kuechly last yr..
