You also said that Te'o has the ability to run a sub 4.4 40. You are still wrong.

Anyone who has watched ND play with an unbiased eye. That statement... :facepalm:

There are no words for how ridiculous that statement is, even after he had a season with a few lucky INTs and a good team.

I think your down playing Te'o a bit too much. He is a superb player who the Colts won't have a chance of getting anyways so I guess as of now this thread is kind of a moot point.

You gotta give the kid some credit though, one of the best LBs out there and I do think he will have a shot to be a top LB in the pros.

The guy is an absolute physical freak.

He won't be a top LB in the pros. He's an okay prospect who has has many lucky interceptions. Not impressed by him at all. Watching him struggle to get off any blocks at all, his inconsistent tackling, lack of athleticism, lack of any pass rush moves, etc. says he isn't a great prospect, just a good story.

As for the bold- What?

I think we'll all be very surprised if Ogletree is rated higher than Teo....    Very,.

 

Ogeltree maybe good,  but I don't think he's close to being **that** good.

 

Just my two cents...

You may be right, but as of now, your view is at sharp odds with people who do this for a living.   They seem to view Teo in the exact opposite way.

 

They see him on par with Keuchly.   His one perceived weakness going into this year was pass coverage.   He dropped 8-10 pounds and picked off 7 passes.    Now he's viewed as a 3-down inside linebacker who doesn't have to come off the field.  

 

I wouldn't bet on him not being a top ILB in the pros.

Teo is a "great" college football LBr.      This season, he had the BEST DL in NCAA football in front of him.,.      L Nix is the true STAR of that D.

 

But that said... ALL great MLBrs are only as good as their interior D.    And that is simply a fact.

 

Buyer beware...

In our D, Manti Te'o might be a WLB if Freeman continues to play at his level. Angerer or Conner might become dispensable then, IMO.

So, if this season, the reason he was so good was that he had a great DL in front of him...

 

What is the excuse why he was so good as a Freshman, Sophomore and Junior?    Because the defense in front of him in those years wasn't as good as this year's DL.

It was this season that his stock skyrocketed. He was a late first rounder before the hype began. Unfortunately for some team, said team will listen to the hype and take him way too high.

I could see Teo going anywhere from 7th(Buffalo seriously needs a ILB) to late first to where Baltimore will need there future ILB, The combo of Suggs, Teo, Mcclain or Upshaw, Kruger could be a very good Linebacker core going forward if Suggs returns to his usual form next year and if Lewis retires, if Lewis dont then put Teo next to Lewis for a year and try rotating Upshaw in with Kruger

Actually Stephon Tuitt is the best player on their defense.

I think Alec Ogletree would make a good tandem with Jerrel Freeman.  Ogletree needs to put on a couple more pounds though I think

I think if the draft were tomorrow he'd be drafted top 5 either by someone in the top 5 or someone trading into the top 5.

 

By April, who knows.

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]
