Chargers grab Manti Te'o after trade
By Bill Williamson
Manti Te'o is coming to the AFC West.
The San Diego Chargers moved up seven spots to take the polarizing Notre Dame linebacker.
The highly decorated Te’o was long considered a top prospect but played poorly in the national title game against Alabama, was involved in a bizarre hoax involving a fake dead girlfriend and had a poor performance at the NFL combine.
Nevertheless, Te'o was highly productive in college and known for having good character. He should start on a promising San Diego front seven.
San Diego gave Arizona the No. 45 pick and its fourth-round pick (No. 110 overall) to get Te’o.
I will have more on this pick later.
