Pro day looms large for Te'o, others 

March, 1, 2013
Much has been made of the disappointing showing Notre Dame ILB Manti Te'o had at the NFL combine.

After measuring 6-foot-1¼ and 241 pounds, Te'o posted a pedestrian time of 4.82 seconds in the 40-yard dash and didn't look smooth or comfortable during position drills. That created doubt for teams that might have considered him a three-down linebacker and backed up concerns teams might have brought to Indianapolis.

That means the pressure is on for Te'o to improve his 40 time and look better in position drills during Notre Dame's March 26 pro day and during any individual workouts for teams.
