Oh I think there was very real possibility he would go top 10 prior to all this. Of course we haven't had the combine yet and if he runs a 4.8/40 then he was never going to be drafted that high. But the guy had all the momentum in the world before the title game. It's been a bad few weeks for him and its only gonna get worse.
""That crazy stuff you heard earlier about him being a top-five pick, that was all hype," said the NFC scout. "That's the TV, media, Notre Dame-driven hype. Inside linebackers, even great ones, don't go that high. Unless you're the next **** Butkus or Ray Lewis and he's not that. He's not even as good as Jerod Mayo." Most NFL people consider Te'o a late first- to second-round talent"
Assuming how gullible he can potentially be, one would imagine that a few teams would feel responsible for babysitting him so he doesn't fall into any more trouble like this. Just for his own good, I'd prefer he ends up in a smaller market area and away from a place like New York.
