NFL Draft

Randy:
The wrenching story of Notre Dame football star Manti Te'o's girlfriend dying of leukemia - a loss he said inspired him to play his best all the way to the BCS championship - was dismissed by the school as a hoax perpetrated against the linebacker.

Notre Dame said Wednesday night it believes the Heisman Trophy finalist was duped into an online relationship with a woman whose "death" was then faked by the perpetrators of the hoax.

The school made the statement following a lengthy story by Deadspin.com, saying it could find no record that Lennay Kekua ever existed. The website story suggests a friend of Te'o may have carried out the hoax and that the football player may have been in on it.

If this javius jones kid is anything like the pass rusher the broncos selected 2 years back then I wouldn't blink when I pulled the trigger. VPN miller

I want a OL. Someone who gonna help out with Palme prior and McFadden production and we dan get rid of khalif Barnes (move veldheer to the right)

I agree but we can't go wrong with drafting for either offensive or defensive lines at this point.  I am leaning towards best player available at the pick at this point.  We must fill some gaping holes on D though.

I live in georgia (where he goes) and a lot of georgia fans have said beware of his back problems but he can check out with the doctors than I am good with it just a lot of uncertainty.

Trade down the pick.  Me personally, I still want Te'o.  I am partial though as I am a ND fan.  However, I think that Te'o is the kind of kid you can build your defense around.  He has the heart of a lion and you can't coach that.  Manti was first projected top 5, now it is top 12.  I say trade the pick and pick him up later in the first round.  If we keep the pick, get Jarvis Jones out of Georgia - he is a beast.
