Never mind being catfished, at least one NFL star doesn't even care if Manti Te'o floundered at the NFL Scouting Combine this week and would welcome the former Notre Dame star into his team's locker room. Terrell Suggs of the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens was in New York City when TMZ asked the former-Defensive Player of the Year if it would be alright if the Ravens drafted the linebacker — who ran a lumbering 4.80 40-yard dash at the NFL showcase. Suggs had nothing but praise for Te'o and said, "Manti? Most definitely." "He's got a future, man," he added. "He'll be alright." Suggs wasn't so keen on the NFL Combine itself and claims he didn't exactly impress the coaches when he was showing off his skills. "It's built for small school guys who don't get a look," said the man who hoisted the Lombardi Trophy earlier this month. It looks like Te'o's — the guy with the fake girlfriend— draft stock might have dropped during his highly scrutinized trip to Indianapolis, but it sounds like Suggs' vote of confidence is the real deal.
