More Jokes, Low Draft Stock the Result of Manti Te’o’s Slow 40 Time
Even after all the fake girlfriend jokes and the endless stories on Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o‘s fake online girlfriend, the troubled Heisman Trophy runner-up had a chance to really steer all the negative attention away from him at the NFL Combine and blew it. Well, not really. Te’o ran an incredibly slow 4.81 in the 40-yard dash, finishing with the slowest of all players at his position that are participating in the combine. So now we’ve been provided with another list of incredibly corny jokes about his snail-like time. See what I mean?
But in all seriousness, Te’o’s poor combine performance thus far means he’s no longer a surefire first-round pick. Even after all the fake girlfriend nonsense, he was still predicted to go in the middle-to-late first round as long as he ran a decent 40 time. Well, he definitely didn’t make the most of that opportunity as he finished with the 20th-best time of the 26 linebackers who participated in the 40-yard dash at the combine. Especially considering there were linebackers like Zaviar Gooden running sub-4.5 times, Te’o’s draft stock is starting to tumble and the off-field concerns certainly don’t help matters.
So which team might take a chance on Te’o, especially in the first round? Would you want Te’o on your favorite team considering he’s one of the slower linebackers in the 2013 NFL Draft? Comment below and let us know or reach out to us on Twitter with the hashtag #RML.
