    The thing that cracks me up is we talk about how bad he played in the Championship game (and I admit he didnt play great), but he still had 10 tackles (total), in that game. And that get's lost because he was under so much scrutiny. He had to dominate or he was going to be criticized. If him getting 10 tackles is the result of him having a poor performance, then the NFL is in for a treat should he put it all together at the next level.

    The way you put it flippy, I say draft him. I'd love to have this beast manning the middle:

    He had 3 solo tackles... and it was the tackles he didn't make that made him look so bad.

    He missed tackles that extended drives which gave him more chances to jump on the pile and get an assist.

    I'm not an expert on ILB stats but he had 8 games with 3 or less SOLO tackles. Is that a cause for concern? Who knows...

    He also said the combine was exhausting and it's why he didn't run in the 4.5- 4.6 like he usually does. Not a good answer IMO.

    Most analysts disagree with you. He has been marked a clear loser and has likely hurt his draft stock significantly. I wouldn't be shocked if he fell to us in the second.

    ..and Shawn post some of those concerns. Most are basing that on one thing...his 40 time. Everything else says differently. A 4.27 20 shuttle is pretty good (better than Ogletree, Dion Jordan, Ansah, Mingo, and Sio Moore). And his 3 cone and 60 yard shuttle were above average as well.

    But I get it, it's just like one game. People will judge based on one game and one 40 yard dash.

    ...and I dont know about most analysts but the two who were on the field yesterday (Mike Mayock and Willie McGinnest), both said they thought he did well in his drills.

    I am almost willing to guarantee we will not be taking an ILB at pick 17.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    You are probably right. I am not saying the Steelers are going to do this. I am saying I would have no problem drafting T'eo and Minter at 17.

    The problem with Manti is timing... his last game was awful, didnt play in the senior bowl, had the hoax and then had a sub par 40. Most peole would like to see something positive.

    We are talking about a guy who won all these awards and finished second in the Heisman. Since that day its been all down hill. Not sure why a person shouldnt be skeptical given how things are playing out. Most guys who finish second in voting and have all this press show a little more than Manti has thus far.

    This is an amazingly accurate & valid observation. Cuts right to the heart of what people are worried about concerning Te'o.

    It's not that he can't play. But right now, it's like all the cracks are being exposed.
