On Maxim’s website, Te’o's fake girlfriend’s bio reads, “After Manti Te’o's fake girlfriend hoax of 2012, we think it might be nice to have an invisible girl of our own to love. Why not? She’s got a ton of great qualities, including looking awesome in a bikini.”
The Jets’ QB conundrum is among the hot stories generated once the 2013 NFL Draft came to a close.
The Chargers selected Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
There were plenty of big names missing from the first round of the NFL draft Thursday night: Manti Te’o, Geno Smith, Matt Barkley. And every running back in this year’s crop.
The Giants have a glaring need at linebacker. Outside of getting the best available player — which could well be Alec Ogletree, anyway — that’s where the concentration of the first two days needs to be.
Heading into the NFL Draft on Thursday, look for the Giants to fill many holes on defense in the seven rounds. That doesn’t mean, of course, that general manager Jerry Reese will use the 19th pick overall to take a defensive player.
Combine the good, bad and bizarre, and when Te’o gets selected might be the most intriguing part of the NFL draft that starts on Thursday in New York.
If the GM digs up Vernon Gholston instead of Joe Namath in the draft, he’ll be pilloried, and probably unemployed before his contract expires.
More than likely, Te’o's visit was more of a smokescreen. The Giants have turned that practice into an art form.
Former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o visited with the Giants on Thursday night and Friday morning, according to multiple reports. Te’o, of course, was the victim of a “catfishing” hoax that took the sports world by storm in January.
Te’o is hoping to be picked in the first round of next month’s NFL draft, though he’s not expected to be on hand at Radio City Music Hall.
“Our locker room is full of clowns and, oh man, people would kill him,” Smith said. “I mean, he would be the butt of every joke for at least two, three years.”
The fact that no one in American team sports has come out while still active in his sport says everything.
A senior Jets executive says the situation surrounding Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o is “unusual” and “scares you a little bit” in the upcoming NFL draft.
“I think that’s pretty much an inappropriate question to ask a kid,” Suggs said. “If the kid can play, regardless of what he does with his off-the-field time … I think that’s the only thing he really needs to be held accountable for.”
