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.
