If you can stomach the clear marketing ploy (by whomever is poushing Te'o), watch this highlight video which is almost exclusively of his interceptions in zone coverage last season. Keep in mind, many of these QB's throwing the INT's will be on an NFL roster next season.
The music is ghey, and the first minute or two is junk -be forewarned!
From what scouts say it sounds like he has the instincts to be a good player in a zone passing defense scheme. But he may not have the quick twitch change of direction needed to play man to man against stud RB and TE. Thats why we have 3-4 good corners on the team.
I think Broncos could go with TEO but maybe we can trade to top of the 2nd and still get him.
