If he is BPA yah.
I would argue greater needs but if he is still around and there isn't a DL, S, or a STUD OL on the board yet I would say definitely yes.
I think he was probably a little distracted over this whole ordeal that is going down. I thought I saw somthing that he found out that he was hoaxed around like the 8th of december, so IDK that's a lot for a kid that age to take in.
The lying about it or maybe not IDK, my point is like Norm stated I don't think this one game can tell the whole story. I mean the guy had 7 picks as a LB thats pretty outrageous.

Yeah he must not have talent because he had a bad gamelol.. There is not a single college or NFL player that does not have a bad game from time to time... None.................
I don't care about the whole GF thing, what I do care about is I think Alec Ogletree from Georgia and Kevin Minter from LSU are both better ILB's so if we're picking an ILB, I would prefer either one of those over Manti.
Yeah I never said He didn't have NFL talent I just said I thought he would top out to early and be a Hawk but maybe a bit better. I was going to mention Ogletree and Minter. I personally like both of them more. IDK why I just am not a big fan of Te'o in the first.
When people mention consistency with Hawk I don't see that as a good thing at all. He is consistent but not consistently good. More like average. He doesn't make splash plays, Plays slow and always makes a tackle 1 yard to late. I hate it honestly. I would MUCH rather have Jones on the field. I mean he completely outplayed Hawk this year.
if he is the best player available take him. i frimly beleive BPA is what builds winning teams.
that beign said i doubt he's there when we pick

Here's my read on Teo. I think he was vastly over-rated by the media. He shouldn't have been a Heisman candidate. But that doesn't mean he can't be a good pro. I look at his game and I see that he offers something that we don't have. He is a linebacker with the speed to run sideline to sideline. He is much better in coverage than any ILB that we have. I don't think he's ever going to be a guy who is making a ton of plays in the backfield. I also think he might be a good guy to have in a league with a mobile qb since he will probably be a good guy to have spy. So I guess you'll be disappointed if you take him and expect Patrick Willis, but I think he'd be a nice compliment to Bishop, so I'd probably take him.
You can take this with a grain of salt. I've never really specifically watched him on tape, but I watched a fair amount of ND games and that's basically what I've observed.
