The FANSIDED NFL MOCK DRAFT has been updated for this week and the Giants are projected to go Linebacker. While that position is a popular one for mockers to concentrate on….this choice is pure fantasy. I have forgotten all of the circus surrounding Te’o…and the overhyping of his play during the season. What I can’t forget is disappearing act during the National Championship game.
19. New York Giants
Linebacker, Notre Dame
Ignore all of the hoaxes and negative press Te’o has received since the national championship game. No matter what happened there, Te’o is one heck of a football player and a natural leader. The Giants would be a great fit.
To quote Charlie Brown “Good Grief.” If it wasn’t for the fact that Te’o was on such a memorable team, I don’t believe any of this stuff would really matter. He’s a really good college linebacker with a lot to prove at the next level, but he’s no Lawrence Taylor. As a matter of fact, in my opinion he’s the third best middle linebacker in this draft behind, Alec Ogletree and Kevin Minter. It will take years to know the truth, but I’m not buying.
