Comparisons to Ray Lewis' personal reclamation are off base, IMO. Lewis is a genuinely terrifying individual with near unmatched intensity and charisma. Te'o isn't that guy.
Maybe an attention-starved shit mongrel like Jerry Jones grabs him for the media attention. With an average combine I bet he slips to round 2, if not lower.
Ray Lewis actually has NFL-caliber talent unlike Te'o. That is another difference.
