About this Article

Manti Te'o spent Thursday night with his family in Hawaii, watching the first round of the NFL draft and expecting a phone call that never came. That call finally came on Friday. San Diego Chargers rookie general manager Tom Telesco moved up seven spots in the second round to draft the Notre Dame linebacker, apparently not worried about a hoax involving a fake girlfriend and a poor performance in the national championship game that have dogged Te'o for four months.
