One Year Later: Relive the Selection of Manti Te'o

Posted Apr 30, 2014

Relive last year's draft with our complete coverage of Manti Te'o.


It was quite the frenzy when General Manager Tom Telesco traded up to nab Manti Te'o in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft.  Now you can relive the day with all the articles, videos and photos posted following his selection.

As soon as the selection was made we reposted a detailed prospect profile I wrote on him a few weeks prior.

Immediately after making the pick, Telesco joined our own Nicoletta Ruhl to talk about the decision to trade up and select the highly touted prospect. 

A few minutes later, Te'o called me for a phone interview from his house in Hawaii where he was watching the draft.  One of the highlights is hearing what his initial reaction was when he saw a California area code pop up on his cell phone.

The next morning, before he did anything else, Te'o granted his lone one-on-one video interview for the day to our own Jordan Beane. 

Later in the day, Te'o held his highly anticipated press conference in the team meeting room. 

Chargers.com was also your source for unique, one-of-a-kind photo galleries including Te'o's arrival at Chargers Park.

One of the highlights of his press conference was Te'o saying how impressed he is with the entire Chargers organization.

Finally, Bolts Breakdown examined the second round pick as Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Spanos gave expert analysis on the inside linebacker.

Now, you can stay in touch with the team anytime, anywhere, on your mobile device with the official app of the San Diego Chargers.
