    Jerry Reese Uncertain If Te'o's Draft Status Has Been Affected

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/22/...been-effected/

    By now, we are all familiar with the very public debacle that took place between Manti Te'o and his fictional girlfriend Lennay Kekua. When the story broke, the public perception was that Te'o was complicit in a hoax in order to garner media attention. As the facts of the story emerged over the coming days, it appeared very plausible that Te'o was actually the victim, not the perpetrator. However, for Te'o, the most important aspect of this story will be how it affects his 2013 NFL Draft status.

    Excerpt: "Before this story came to fruition, Te'o was slated as first-round draft pick. It's debatable how much of his draft stock was based upon talent and how much was due to his notoriety, but his character and leadership qualities were one of his most defining characteristics. New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese does not know if this specific media firestorm will have an impact on that notion.

    "Well, we don’t know yet, because we haven't sat down and talked to him at all yet," Giants general manager Jerry Reese said. "And again, it’s still early, most people don’t know the details. I know I don’t know all the details, and so it’s hard to say right now."


    On the field, Manti Te'o has proven to be a fairly versatile linebacker. He has the size and durability to hold up in the middle of any defensive scheme. He's shown the ability to make plays in pass coverage and has quality intangibles. It remains to be seen how his game translates to the NFL. There are questions about his speed and overall athleticism, which stem from is deplorable performance against Alabama in the BCS National Championship game two weeks ago.

    Regardless of Te'o's disastrous showing in Miami and embarrassing relationship issues, most mock drafts still have him being taken in the first round. However, for Reese, it's still way to early to tell how his draft stock will fluctuate between now and April. Part of determining how Te'o's recent girlfiend hoax will effect his draft status will be how he interviews on the topic." Read more...

    A lot will depend on how much he had a hand in creating the illusion

    Who gives a JOHN BROWN.

    as long as he can put Mcoy, Morris, Murray, RG3, Romo, and whoever for the eagles on their ***, he can be in in an affair with Queen diana for all I bloody care! Get him on board.

    tired of this Soap show JHON BROWN Noise! fans are more interested in the story of his alleged relationship rather than his ability to play the position at the next JHON BROWN level.

    I am still not convinced that Teo will be an impact player in the NFL, what are your thoughts?

    Don't see the Giants taking him at 19, and he'll be gone by our second round pick, so he's probably a non-issue for the Giants.
