Despite an unimpressive 4.80 time in the forty-yard dash, ESPN’s Adam Schefter says that former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o won’t make it out of  the first round of April’s draft. “Teams that met with Te’o came away very impressed … Teams believe he still will be a 1st-round pick,” said Schefter on Sportscenter, per Evan Silva. Even though Te’o's forty time wasn’t great, he should do fine as a middle linebacker in the NFL.   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'; 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); })();
