  • Giants May Take Notre Dame's Te'o In NFL Draft

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...TB8Nyt0XknrApL

    Excerpt: "The Manti Te’o image rehabilitation project appears to be working.

    The controversial Notre Dame linebacker’s stock, which dropped like a stone in the wake of his bizarre “dead fake girlfriend” tale and a woeful performance in the BCS title game, is back on the rise.
    And at just the right time, too — four days before Thursday’s first round at Radio City Music Hall.

    Te’o wisely declined an invitation to attend the draft in person, accurately predicting it would be a circus, but scouts say he has done much in visits with individual teams to ease major concerns about his psyche and terrible on-field showings against Alabama and at the scouting combine.
    Much of the talk that Te’o could slip to the second or even third round appears to have dissipated, and the Giants — badly in need of a middle linebacker to help shore up their run defense — wouldn’t surprise many league insiders if they take him with the 19th overall pick.Scouts say Te’o has been able to repair his image largely by coming across so well in team interviews and visits with individual clubs.Several of those teams have been very impressed with Te’o’s humbleness, his willingness to answer their exhaustive list of questions about the girlfriend episode and his football smarts. Te’o also redeemed his poor combine performance with a much improved display at his pro day." Read more...

    Giants would not be smart to take him first overall, when he could very likely drop to the 2nd, i wouldn't lose sleep over him. Rather Ogletree, Greene, Brown, even Baurentits or Rid**** over him. Rather a Werner or Okafor if available in the 1st.

            I can't see Teo holding up between the locker room stuff and the NY media pressure.

            Then again, he always has a friend to talk to
            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)

                        Prepare to cry kids because I actually believe this could happen...Our LBs aren't worth a crap, & besides the Alabama game/girlfriend deal, teo had a nice 2012 season.....giants or not, teo goes in the top 25

                          Chances are slim to none. Not cause of the dead girlfriend but his dead performance in the National Championship game where his weaknesses were exposed in every facet of the game. Couldn't tackle, couldn't cover, couldn't shed blockers. Quality players step up in a National Championship Game he stepped down. Why in the world would we take him at 19? Second round maybe but I'd rather not.

                              New York is NOT the place for Te'o.
                              Baltimore, KC or any other smaller market is much better for him. Needs to be where they will leave him alone to play football.

                              If he comes here as a 2nd round pick that might be more workable, since there wouldn't be as much pressure.
                              Safe to say that emotionally, he might be a tad "delicate".
                              Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.
