INDIANAPOLIS — Most of the media is on Manti Te’o watch this afternoon, but the annual combine continues with the first on-field workouts and press interviews with defensive linemen and linebackers.
Te’o is scheduled to speak to the press later today, and figures to draw the largest crowd of the week, anxious to hear him discuss the recent girlfriend hoax and what, if any, impact it might have on his draft prospects.
Tights ends and offensive linemen are spending their day on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium, trying to post individual numbers that get the attention of NFL teams. One who did was Arkansas-Pine Bluff tackle Terron Armstead, who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.71 seconds, fastest among the offensive linemen. Expect teams to take a good look at Armstead, and for his stock projection to get a nice boost.
Oops, rumor has it that Te’o is making his way to the media area. Better get a good seat …
