He doesn't look too impressed.

I was watching that too and the minute I saw his reaction I thought to myself rut rohhhhh! He really didn't seem impressed at all, but the jury is still out. I really don't have a dawg in the Te"o fight, I'm kinda on the fence with this guy. Maybe Harbs was pulling "a fake 'em out" move since he was aware he and the other coaches were being watched, but it didn't look it...it looked like a natural gut reaction to me. We'll see!

Teo just doesn't have much explosion. He looked slow in the Alabama game and needed to show he could his that next gear in his 40 yard dash. He topped out half way through and looked like he was struggling to even maintain his speed. People think the 40 is a joke now because of teams like the Raiders who draft solely based on it's results, but it is a great drill to help confirm or deny what people know.

I liked the guy a lot but he missed a lot of tackles in some of his bigger games and lacking explosiveness and especially slow sideline to sideline speed is a problem.

At least nine defensive linemen ran faster times than Te'o. Many were expecting Te'o to run in the 4.75 range. He also declined to do the bench press because of a shoulder injury. So that hurts him. However, he was supposedly solid in the other drills.

I said before but to me Teo looks like AJ Hawk. Limited athletically to the point he'd get eaten up in coverage by TEs manned up.

Teo is a LB from the early 2000s, big and bulky without much fluidity in my eyes. Also, I dont know what it is but so many of those Samoan/Tongan guys are massive but not really in the greatest shape. You can see Teo's little gut flopping about as he runs, he just seems softly built.

harbaugh's reaction speaks for itself, not impressed and although there are some players out there that have game speed (speed that shows up on gameday) his stock either has or will continue to slide. now John doesn't have the final say in whose best , but he does have some input. just basing off of what I see here, Ravens will pass on their pick.

woah, little harsh don't you think. Look I think he's been overrated. And the AJ Hawk comparison might be aptly put if not a compliment.

there are several Somoan players in good shape.

Well I didn't say all of them lol. Obviously there are Samoan athletes in great shape. Ngata for being 350 pounds is no slob really.

I think that's an understatement. It seems like John was hoping he would show some sort of reason to pick him but it never showed up. Like he was hoping he would run a solid 40 and show some burst/speed but it just never came.

NaVorro Bowman he's not.

Even with him taking his game to the next level as a senior, I never thought he was comparable to Patrick Willis, and he's the one ILB drafted in recent seasons that could justify being such a pick.

Absolutely. Someone said AJ Hawk, I think that's fair. Not the second coming, as he was labeled

Harbs is probably blown they caught that on camera though. Seems more like he was excited about the kid and that was a look of disappointment than anything else.

Hopefully this will keep everyone from mocking Te'o to us simply because they they need some team to dump the "character concerns" guys on.

We have two months until the draft. Who knows what we will do. The Ravens are almost unpredictable. I really don't think we will draft Te'o. I have been disappointed by Te'o since the BCS championship game. If he can't handle Alabama's speed he can't handle NFL speed. We all know Ozzie was watching the Alabama game (huge Alabama fan). I have full trust that Ozzie will draft the right guy whether its Te'o or not. Ozzie knows best.

It kind of reminded me of those before and after photos that they show of nfl head coaches (and presidents). You kow, when they show them all bright eyed and bushy tailed, and then boom, they become head coaches for a few years and it looks like they aged by decades.

Anyways, I hate to sound like a T'eo fan, but 40 times are not exactly the best predictors in the world.
