    The one thing I have noticed about him is he looks a little bit pudgy and like he might be a little slow. None of this stuff is helping him in the draft at all.
    Its a weird story and it keeps evolving. IMO he needs to stop talking about it but I'm not sure he can. Its all he talked about anytime he was interviewd and the media fell in love with the story.

    His stock was dropping before the hoax after the Bama game according to Gil Brandt.

    You are amazing. You are just like the media. Always twisting things in favor of what you want to believe or have heard. Gil Brandt? Really? He's got him dropping so much he has him listed as the 12 overall player in this entire draft.



    12) Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame:Te'o finished his senior season with 113 tackles and seven interceptions (that latter number is unheard of for a linebacker). He did not play well in the BCS Championship Game, but everything he's done in his career at Notre Dame overrides that

    It is very possible T'eo will be on the board near where we are going to pick. I still have no issue with taking him. If we ruled out every college player who ever did something stupid we would never draft anyone.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Well... maybe it was another Gil Brandt or a hoax but he dropped him to 19th and said his stock was dropping before the story broke. Players rise and fall all the time... dont get mad at me, get mad at Gil.

    19th is still showing as a pretty good football player. It is still a first round pick.

    I'll take A.J. kLEIN in the 6th, get him with a reasonable contract and you'll see a machine out there making tackles left and right. This has nothing to do with anything outside of football, T'eo is a good football player but he may be overrated and not worth selecting early when we have other needs.

    There is a good chance his stock will fall in the draft because teams are looking for OLB's pass rushers more than ILB 's. Normally, ILB, Guards are not the premium positions teams are looing for especially in this pass happy league. CB's, Pass rushers,and D-line seem to be the first choice by most teams while ILB's are down the list.
    Same with the Guard position, teams are looking for Tackles more than Guards on the o-line and, receivers,TE, s QB's on offense.

    I'm not knocking T'eo, but for us a top BPA corner or OLB early may be the ticket, we can get an ILB later in the draft.

    I'm not an ND fan but if the TE is available and it isnt a reach I would pick him at 17. We need weapons...

    I agree... but I have no problem knocking him. I dont think he is a first round talent or head and shoulders above the other ILB's in the draft.
