Clocks a 4.82 at NFL combine in Indianapolis

– Manti Te’o’s first appearance on a football field since the BCS championship game didn’t go as well as planned Monday.

The Notre Dame star and Heisman Trophy runner-up was clocked at 4.82 seconds in the 40-yard dash. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock had said Sunday anything faster than 4.7 would be “phenomenal.” Anything 4.8 or over would be a “concern.”

The workout comes more than a month after Te’o’s highly publicized online romance with a girlfriend was exposed and that Te’o was a victim of the hoax.

Since then, his draft stock has fallen and he’s done a handful of one-on-one interviews and took questions Saturday in one of the craziest scenes in NFL scouting combine history.

Some wonder whether the story has become a distraction, and Te’o’s subpar performance Monday didn’t help.
