Would you take Te'o with the 2nd round pick?
 
With the scandal it could be possible that teams might shy away from Manti Te'o in the 1st round. He does play a position that is a need for the Chiefs. We have recently stolen a first round quality LB (Houston) in the 3rd round in a loosely similar situation.

With all that in mind, and assuming the Chiefs take care of the QB need in the 1st, are you for or against taking Te'o in the 2nd if he's still on the board?

I'm torn on this scenario myself. Frankly I'm always very dubious of media hypes for Notre Dame players. Until I heard about this "fantastic" ILB later in the season I hadn't seen him in action. I must say I have watched him in 3 games since then and am not impressed. Maybe not even as a 2nd rounder. Maybe he was spectacular until I started watching him, but I doubt it. Has anyone here watched him all season or last season and can convince me he's worth our 2nd rounder?

I'd **** a certain person's iranian mother for a second round pick *shrug*

sorry, couldn't resist :)

No thanks, I don't see him being very good in the NFL. And I don't want to deal with the drama of having him around.

nope, even before the bullshit.

WayneBowe 01-18-2013 10:11 PM

He looks slow and small against real competition.

BossChief 01-18-2013 10:15 PM

I'd take him in the second. He is a good coverage linebacker and in today's NFL, Hali and Houston coming off the edges with Teo and DJ dropping back could prove to really help this defense.

Th guy has some issues, no doubt,..but so do most linebackers.

Big Smoke 01-18-2013 10:16 PM

If he falls that far then yes. His upside is a lot higher than most of the players that will be avaliable.

Silock 01-18-2013 10:17 PM

5th or lower only

I worry about how other players would be treat Te'o in the locker room. How would he every be able to earn trust respect. Ya never know if he's telling the truth.

Bump 01-18-2013 10:54 PM

lol, too many chiefs fans wanted him with the #1 a month ago lolol

not here.

According to the trade charts, psychopathic behavior moves a player down less than one round if he plays defense, so yes, I'd take him in the second.

CoMoChief 01-18-2013 11:00 PM

Not if Wilson's there.

'Hamas' Jenkins 01-18-2013 11:03 PM

From the standpoint of his NFL future, he would have been better off dry fisting a live girl than lying about talking to a dead one. The cultural priorities of the locker room aren't the same as other spaces. Hence the anathema of being gay.
