  • 2013 NFL Draft: Manti Te'o, Giants Meet

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2013-nfl-...rk-giants-meet

    Excerpt: Manti Te'o met with the New York Giants on Thursday,according to a report from Eric Hansen of Notre Dame Insider.

    Despite the whirlwind of talk about Te'o, from the girlfriend hoax to his less-than-stellar performance at the Scouting Combine, several draft analysts still consider Te'o to be a player who could be in consideration for the Giants at No. 19, and who could be drafted by the Giants or any team after that interested in a linebacker."

    Would be a value pick ... him and his imaginary friend for the price of one.
    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)

      The hoax thing doesnt bother me at all and the Combine doesnt matter much to me either. What eats me up with Teo is his performance, or lack there of, in the championship. He was getting tooled around the whole game. Im not sure if he is to blame completely for his performance though, because the whole team got chewed up. He was a beast all season, but that game was just a huge disappointment. If not for that, Id have no complains with the pick. How do others feel?
      2017 Draft Wishlist:
      1. Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford
      2. Raekwon McMillan ILB Ohio State
      3. Roderick Johnson OT Florida State
      4. Jordan Leggett TE Clemson
      5. Ryan Glasgow DT Michegan
      6. Chad Kelly QB Ole Miss
      7. Billy Brown WR Shepherd

          I would be fine with taking him in the second

            I agree that he's more intriguing as a 2nd round pick.

            I'd still prefer Brown over him though.

              He fits the mold of a MLB over the likes of Ogletree or Greene. But he can't shed blocks and is sluggish. That bama' game threw up huge red flags to me.

                His imaginary girlfriend is hot....from what I've heard.

                  I'd rather trade back in RD1 and take em.. He played like a RD1 LB all season except for that championship game, and i'm not discounting that for one game, no matter the game.. Also, i think i'd rather a guy go through what he went through now, because u know damn well, he isn't let anything crazy to happen like that, with everything he had to deal with...

                    He can make a good tackle, but I heard his girlfreind is better at getting a sack!......or maybe it was that I heard she was good in the sack?!?

                      I agree,,,it happened and now it is done...the people who continue to let it live on via jokes and wise cracks are the real people with problems, let it go already.

                        Wouldn't be a huge fan of this pick.

                        Aside from his poor performance against Alabama, I don't think that NYC is the place for him. I think that the media will poke at him constantly to try to get to the bottom of the girlfriend hoax thing, which will be a huge distraction. Not being judgmental at all, it is pretty clear to me that the whole girlfriend hoax was designed to hide the fact that he is gay (there is not a hetero male in the world that would declare a woman the love of his life without ever meeting her). If that's truly the case, and his sexuality is something that he wants to hide, the NYC media crush will make his life miserable.

                          I got this vibe as well.

                            I don't think the girlfriend hoax was an attempt to hide his sexuality, apparently this is something that happens a lot I think there is even a tv show about it. IMO I think the guy was truly duped, in todays world falling in love with someone on the internet and never meeting them is not that far fetched. As for his poor performance against Alabama, it may have been a product of his knowledge that this was going to blow up at anytime. I think we as fans forget that these guys are just kids and being under the spot light with this hanging over your head has got to weigh on him.

                            What I don't understand is why are some guys on these boards willing to draft Ogeltree in the 1st with all the off the field issues he had yet would not take Te'o because of this girlfriend hoax.
