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."
