    he plays much faster than that...and hes not going to be asked to keep up with TEs, hes gonna be asked to chase QBs. James harrison ran a 4.9 and he did just fine in coverage, woodley couldnt touch his 40 time from college at his weight now and he does ok in coverage. Sure mingo and jordan have better coverage ability but Jones and Werner would be asked to get after the QB WAYYY more than coverage

    Straight line time in the NFL doesn't really mean much unless you are a one trick pony WR.

    Would love to see Jones as our ROLB.

    And it's not as much about speed in coverage as it is being in the right spot.

    Speed helps obviously, but if you don't where you're going, it doesn't matter how fast you are.

    all i question about teo is his mental toughness, if him being made fun of is gonna "stress him out" or make him shut down no one has any use for him because that IS gonna happen. If he can brush it off and go make plays no one will care. Hes in for a tough rookie year though

    I think he'll be fine ... he was making fun of himself on that Game Changers show ... I was never a fan of him top 10 as he was getting hype for ... but 2nd round I think is about where he should go

    I am softening on a possible Eifert pick. He is so versatile, he would be like picking up a WR in many regards and would mitigate against our relatively weak WR corps. Instead of running out Wallace, AB, Sanders, Miller on third and long like we did in the past, you run out two WRs (AB, Sanders) and two TEs (Miller, Eifert). Still not saying he would be my first choice, but I would not throw my remote against the TV.

    I'm willing to bet Te'o doesn't leave the 1st. Chicago at 20 or Vikings at 23/25 if I had to guess. I saw that Game Changers with Te'o as well. I really do believe he'll handle all the jokes and **** well. He poked fun at himself a few times, "I know about imaginary things" or something along those lines haha.
