Is it just me or does this guy sound like a Colt?

Classic Overachiever, Projected late round pick. Undersized Defensive End, Solid College production, High Motor, Great Combine workout, Solid Intangibles, Not expected to produce in the pros.

I’m not saying he’s a first round pick, but
Look this guy up.

Te’o-Nesheim performed 29 bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds, and he was timed as fast as 4.73 seconds in the 40-yard dash, though his official time was not among the top 10. Well, he was timed running the 40-yard dash in 4.67 seconds at Washington’s pro day on Wednesday, according to his agent. The scouts in attendance all had him in the 4.6s.

Intangibles: Highly respected by fans, teammates and the coaching staff. Was a consistent recipient of hustle awards throughout his career – earning the Mark Drennan Defensive Scout Squad Player of the Year when redshirting in 2005 to earning the John P. Angel Defensive Lineman of the Year from 2007-09. Recognized as the Defensive MVP following the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Voted team captain in 2008 and 2009. Participated on the UW track and field team, throwing the shot put and discus and finishing 14th and 16th, respectively, at the 2006 Pac-10 Championships.

His 37’ Vertical is a half of inch shorter than Dwight Freeney and he weighs 8 pounds more. (Freeney weighed 255 in college)
That’s explosion.

In private workouts he’s clocked around 4.67 in the 40, which isn’t lightning quick but it’s fast for a DE, and he moves well with the third best 20 yard shuffle in the combine.

A classic overachiever, Te’o-Nesheim doe not fit the mold of a star NFL defensive end, but he started all 49 games in which he played with the Huskies and proved to be one of the Pac-10’s most consistent defenders over the past three seasons.

The two-time second-team all-Pac-10 honoree leaves with eye-popping numbers: 194 tackles, 47 tackles for loss and as the school’s all-time leader with 30 career sacks. He showed a penchant for coming up with big plays when the Dawgs needed them and was one of few standouts on an otherwise weak unit throughout much of his career.
