The headliner of the media portion of the NFL Scouting combine was Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o.
Nearly every question to Te’o was about the girlfriend hoax that left him embarrassed, scrutinized and with a lot of explaining to do. Te’o said every NFL team he’s met with has asked him about the incident which involved a fictional woman named Lennay Kekua with whom Te’o had an internet relationship.
That list of teams he’s met with formally is small so far at the Combine. Te’o said he has met with the Houston Texans and the Green Bay Packers.
He has 18 more teams on his schedule.
“He’s a darn good player, and we’re looking at inside linebackers,” coach Gary Kubiak said about one of the team’s needs. “He’s an effort player. He can run and hit. There’s a lot to like.”
