Haha this is too funny, I still can’t believe he said that to a girl on twitter.
- MANTI TE’O HAS A BETTER 40 TIME AT NOTRE DAME PRO DAY -
Manti Te’o ran a little better on his home field than he did at the NFL combine, lowering his 40-yard time by more than a tenth of a second during Notre Dame’s pro day, the Associated Press reports.
The Heisman Trophy runner-up posted a best time of 4.69 on Tuesday, bettering the disappointing mark of 4.82 he put up at the combine in Indianapolis last month.
Te’o says he was pleased by his performance, saying he expected to run faster. He attributed the faster time to being on a practice field where he’s comfortable, surrounded by people he knows.
“I think I did pretty good,” he told ESPN’s Josina Anderson and Todd McShay after his workout. “I felt good out there, and it’s good to be back home with guys I spent the last four years with. Definitely a great comfort level there, and whenever you’re comfortable and relaxed, good things are going to happen.”
Te’o definitely looked far more fluid when running this time around.
“I just focused on things that needed to be corrected,” he said. “I obviously wanted to improve my 40 time, and spent a lot of time on that. I was pleased with the way I did my [agility drills] at the combine, so I didn’t have to focus on that as much. All the attention was on my 40, and I’m very pleased with what I did today.”
Timed speed isn’t the only indicator of NFL greatness when it comes to linebackers, though Brian Urlacher (4.5 at 6-4, 260) and Patrick Willis (4.38) are examples of great players who had excellent speed. Both inside linebackers were top-15 draft picks.
I think Te’o could be a first-round pick, but is far from a lock.
Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis, a second-round pick out of Ohio State, ran a 4.82 40 at the Scouting Combine and Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who posted a 5.1 40 in Indianapolis last year then went undrafted, are examples of production and instincts being more important measures than straight-line speed in shorts and a t-shirt.
He is a for sure 1st round pick now….mid first round though
