Manti Te'o ran the 40-yard dash twice at Notre Dame's pro day on Tuesday with better results than his performance at the NFL combine last month.

ESPN's Bill Polian, a former general manager and president of three NFL teams, believe Te'o is in the mix to be a first-round pick after his performance Tuesday.

Could Te'o wind up with the Jets?

The answer is, not likely. Gang Green should have more attractive options available with the ninth overall pick. Although the Jets do like attention-grabbing players (see: Tebow, Tim).

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay has Te'o being selected at No. 32 in his latest mock draft.

Fellow draft analyst Mel Kiper projects Te'o being selected at No. 19 -- by the New York Giants.

One final note on Te'o -- he's not planning to come to New York for the draft next month. Sources told ESPN that Te'o has turned down two separate invitations by the NFL.
