Chargers selected Notre Dame ILB Manti Te'o with the No. 38 overall pick.
The Chargers moved up to draft Te'o, sending the Nos. 45 and 110 picks to the Cardinals. Te'o (6-1, 241) racked up triple-digit tackles in each of his final three seasons, playing inside linebacker in Notre Dame's 3-4. His playmaking in pass coverage reached new heights as a senior with seven interceptions, although six came on tipped balls. Te'o managed a 4.82 forty at the Combine and isn't an explosive athlete, relying on instincts and "feel" to make plays. He struggles to shed blocks when left unprotected by defensive tackles, which most notably showed up in the BCS title game. In San Diego, Te'o will slot in as an immediate starter adjacent to Donald Butler. Fri, Apr 26, 2013 07:04:00 PM
