Yes, 40-yard-dash times probably carry more weight than they should. But things have been slowly tumbling downhill for Manti Te’o since he lost the Heisman to Johnny Manziel. His team got rocked in the National Championship game, and he played terribly. Then his world was blown to bits and he was placed in the spotlight when it came out his girlfriend was never real. Then on Monday he went to run his 40-yard dash and proved to be slower than people expected. It was hoped by many that he would run a 4.75 to offset his 6-foot-1, 240-pound frame, but unfortunately he ran an unofficial time of 4.81 and 4.80. Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh was unimpressed, and Te’o had better pray that his official time is somehow magically lower.

UPDATE: Manti Te’o's official 40-yard-dash time is 4.82. Not good for him:

  • a tenth of a second doesn't mean squat. this is just an excuse to write off this head case so as to not appear to be unfair. this is just political correctness in a dress.
  • Really not a bad time. Rolondo McClain about the same, I think Ray Lewis was about that too in the past. Ray Lewis was involved in a murder but that's OK when you win a Super Bowl. If ND won the championship all would be OK with this kid. Face it, no matter what he does there will be negativity. People need that to feel better about themselves.
  • Why don't you take your comments to a porn site. You have to comment on Ray Lewis. First off he wasn't involved in anything other than trying to stop a crime. Now get off of here and do something worth while, like watch Bachelor or something.
  • Head case ??!?!

    Your post is total gibberish......your "OPINION" is NOT FACT....only gibberish so far
  • One would think that lateral movement time would outweigh vertical movement time for a middle LBer. How fast can he read his keys and react by scraping along the LOS to the ball?
  • This won't be as bad a draft pick as the one that will be wasted on Matt Barkley.
  • It is so sad that people can be so judgemental about a person who at the time everyone thought that Matai Te'o was such a great football player for ND and because the Media made such a big issue of one person mistake that now all people can do is talk so much crap about him. Don't judge someone for what he did wrong but for what he have achived in his life. There are many NFL player's out there that has done worst then what he did in and yet he has become the talk of the kid who had made a bad decision in his life. So if this coach thinks that he can't run the 40yard dash then shame on him. And all I can say is those players who did win the Heisman couldn't even play that well.
  • I'm sure his time in the 40 isn't the only area where he is a bit slow
  • Everyone thinks they know football. Teo's time wasn't up to par and that's it. Over
  • You know, I for one am tired of hearing about the Ray Lewis episode. Read this before you cast another stone. Since 2011 there have been 97 arrests of NFL players on 29 different teams. None I might add involved the Ravens. So the next time you misguided, misinformed individuals throw those stones read this.
    DWI 29 - loaded gun 1 - LIED TO POLICE 4 - wife or mother beating 7 - resisting arrest 2 - assault with or without firearms involved 15 - felony 1 - rape 1 - selling drugs 3 - sexual assualt 3 - evidence tampering 1 - theft 3. So when you look at the above realize that some of these could be on the team you support (29 teams involved) makes Ray Lewis with his "lied to police" look like Mother Teresa huh?
