Re: Manti Te'o didn't really have a dead girlfriend
This will have an impact on his draft spot, but not nearly as great as his measurables during the next 3 months at combines/pro days.
Where this will impact him is at the endorsment table. As a well polished, decent looking 4the year star from Notre Dame with a potential 1st round draft grade, he was set to bring in a decent amount of coin in various endorsement deals. I've got to imagine those offers are drying up fairly quickly, who's going to want Teo pimping their product on to a national audience.
