2013 NFL Draft: San Diego Chargers Select Notre Dame Linebacker Manti Te'o

With the number thirty-eight pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the San Diego Chargers have selected Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o. Initially, it was thought that Te'o would be a first-round prospect, as both the Vikings and Bears were rumored to have a lot of interest in him. After the Vikings passed on Te'o three times in the first, however, it soon became clear that he would be available at the top of the second.

The pick was originally owned by the Arizona Cardinals, but Te'o's value was too high for the Chargers to pass up. They traded up from the 45 spot to take him. Now in San Diego, Te'o will be able to begin repairing his damaged reputation as the newest member of the Chargers linebacker corps.
