As for Teo, I just don't think he's a good pick at 28. I think Minter may be a good pick there, but not Te'o. For me, if Te'o wanted to convince me he's a first round talent after his fake girlfriend fiasco and his lousy Bama performance, he had to light up the combine, separate himself from the pack so to speak. He didn't.
I agree that Teo isn't a perfect player. I'm pretty much playing devil's advocate in this thread because I am indifferent. I just don't believe all the counter-arguments about how he sucks since he played poorly in one title game against a superior team.
Do I think he can be a good pro? Yes.
Is he worth a first round pick? Not sure.
Do I think he has issues? Obvously. But so do quite a few of these highly paid kids we call professional athletes.
Based on Elways moves so far, I think we pass on Teo if he is there for pick #28. I guess we'll all find out in a couple weeks.
