NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — How will the blockbuster surrounding Manti Te’o and his not-so-dead, not-so-real girlfriend affect the NFL draft board?
That remains to be seen. Some analysts and early mock-drafters had the Notre Dame star going to the Giants in the first round at No. 19.
New York wide receiver Victor Cruz said Friday that if Te’o ended up on Big Blue, he’d “definitely” ask the linebacker all about what happened.
“I just got to feel him out first. I got to kind of see, you know, get his personality a little bit,” Cruz told WFAN’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts. “I want to get to know him on a more personal level. And then once I get comfortable with him, I’m definitely going to bring it up and ask him ‘Hey man, what exactly went down?’ I want to know the whole story of how it unfolded.”
