And in one disapproving nod, Manti Te’o’s draft stock plummeted. NFL Network went split screen with John Harbaugh as Te’o ran the 40-yard dash today. The 4.8 did not impress him.
Ouch. Te’o’s off the field problems aside, this is just ugly. No, you don’t need to be a burner to play inside at the NFL level but you damn well better not miss tackles—something he made a habit of in the National Championship game.
Someone needs to light a fire under his ass—perhaps Lennay Kekua can lend a hand.
