During an appearance on Mike and Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio, Mike Mayock of the NFL Network was asked Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o's draft stock went down after a poor performance in the BCS title game. “It’s going to be factored in and teams are going to look at it and teams are going to ask him questions about it.  But overall the body of his work tells me he’s a first round pick in the NFL,” said Mayock. I agree with Mayock, ,but I would expect Te’o be taken late in the first round.  I don’t consider him a top 15 pick.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
