San Diego Chargers LB Manti Te'o has been looking good during the team's organized team activities this week, but the team hasn't been in pads yet. Te'o displayed good balance and looked faster than on film while staying low. He looked smooth in pass coverage but not very fluid in his retreat. He lined up next to LB Donald Butler as the "mike" linebacker in 11-on-11 drills. In rookie drills, he worked at both inside spots. Te'o said the team's 3-4 scheme is similar to what he played in at Notre Dame.
Fantasy Tip: As Tom Krasovic notes, Te'o won't succeed in the NFL on sheer physicality, so he'll have to be adept at anticipating and jumping plays. He's looked good so far, but this is only the beginning. Te'o could prove to be a situational linebacker in the league. We just don't know yet. Don't count on him being a draft pick in IDP leagues in his first season.

San Diego Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said he considers LB Manti Te'o someone very capable of staying on the field on passing downs at the NFL level. "Manti was an excellent third-down player at the college level, especially in zones, especially in his football awareness as far as knowing where routes are coming from, knowing where to pass off a route and pick up another," Telesco said. "He has an innate sense of knowing where people are coming from, not only to take on blocks and avoid blocks but as far as pass receivers coming through his zones. He has the capability of being a three-down linebacker."
