Recapping the Draft: Manti Te'o

Posted Apr 27, 2013

Check out all the content created about second round draft choice Manti Te’o, inside linebacker out of Notre Dame.


Here is all the Chargers.com content on the team’s second round pick, linebacker Manti Te’o out of Notre Dame.

After General Manager Tom Telesco traded up to select Te’o, we reposted a detailed prospect profile I wrote on him a few weeks ago. We also posted photos of the linebacker in action.

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.  Watch it right here.

A few minutes later, Te'o called me for a phone interview from his house in Hawaii where he was watching the draft.  Read the entire transcript of our conversation right here.

We also documented how the highly scrutinized Te'o was planning to adjust to the NFL.  You can read that story right here.

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.  Watch the much talked about interview right here.

Later in the day, Te'o held his highly anticipated press conference in the team meeting room.  You can see what he had to say below.

Chargers.com was also your source for unique, one-of-a-kind photo galleries documenting Te'o's arrival at Chargers Park as well as his press conference.

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. Watch it here.
