Miami is not going to draft him. They just spent big money on Lbers. Plus you are overblowing the whole ordeal that he will bring. Its already old news. Not wise to judge a player based on one game.
I would agree with you on all of this. If he is there in the 2nd round the Dolphins would have to seriously think about it. He can play either ILB or OLB. There's nothing wrong with having a killer group of linebackers, but the Dolphins definitely have other holes to fill. I would think the Dolphins are expecting him to slide as teams are fearing a Tebow-esque media following, but these things can be headed off. I would think that Te'o wants these issues behind him. There is a lot of really good film on him, so, I think the Dolphins are bringing him in to evaluate his psychological health.
