The Baltimore Ravens are fresh off a Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers.  While the 49ers are working to trade backup quarterback Alex Smith, the Baltimore Ravens are looking to replace linebacker Ray Lewis.  Manti Te'o doesn't seem like the man for the job though.  He ran a 4.81 40-yard dash on his first attempt at the NFL combine, and followed it up with a 4.80.  As you can see in the GIF above, Ravens coach Jim Harbaugh didn't seemed very impressed with the run.  Didn't anyone tell Manti Te'o not to have sex with his girlfriend the night before the combine?  That kind of thing can drain a man of physical strength.  Especially when it's a babe like Lennay Kekua.   GIF via BLS Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
