Teo blames slow 40 time on Combine stress

Posted by Mike Florio on February 25, 2013, 9:21 PM EST

Former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Teo has refused to blame his poor performance during the BCS national title game on the stress resulting from the knowledge that, inevitably, the story of his fake dead girlfriend would be exposed.

On Monday, Teo blamed his poor performance during the 40-yard dash on the overall stress of the Scouting Combine.

I was running near a 4.6, a 4.5, Teo told NFL Network after officially clocking a 4.82-second 40-yard dash. Today was just a long, long day.

Teo called the Combine a very exhausting process, explaining that he got to bed late and got up early, with roughly four hours of sleep per night.

Of course, Teo experienced plenty of mental stress, too. He met with 20 teams individually, and he endured a packed-house press conference on Saturday.

He promises to have an improved showing at the Notre Dame Pro Day workout. [People can expect] better numbers, Teo said. [I will be] rested. One day you hit it hard and then you are done.

Rested or not, Teo will have even more pressure on him when its time to run again.

Mentally weak
