I think Mant'i Te'o will slide down the the draft a bit because. First off he's a pure ILB and they don't get drafted top ten like most linebackers. 2 he had a bad game against Alabama but who hasn't had a bad game against Alabama. 3 he won't be a good OLB in a 4-3 or 3-4 because. He don't have the great speed that's need to be effective and to chase down fast running backs and cover the WR the the slot or flats when needed in a 4-3 or rush to passer from the OLB spot in a 3-4.
Mant'i Te'o is a natural born leader has good coverage skills and instincts. I know most of us watched the title game and seen he's performance and begged to differ but. Did you see Alabama's O-line i think that unit might be better than almost half of the NFL. Alabama showed the world that Notre Dame D line was very overrated and because of that Te'o wasn't able to be as effective as he was in previous games because. that o.line would swallow him up and wall off rush lanes and as good as Te'o is he just can't do it by himself.
I think Te'o would be gone before 21 so in order for us to snag him we are gonna have to trade up. There are two teams that we should target for a trade 1 St.Louis Rams and the Carolina Panthers Why you ask. The Panthers have the 14th pick and the Rams have the 16th we could move to 14 to jump a head of the saints but if will cost us more than 2 picks. We can move up to 16 ahead of the Steelers and it will likely cost us only 2 picks mostly likely the 21st pick and a second round pick. if we wait before these options the Steelers would grab him for sure and i don't know about ya'll but i wouldn't want to play against him and Timmons twice a year.
let me know what ya'll think
