Plus I have not seen one big board have Te'o at #1 overall (most have him at 5th or higher). He's out of the question because A.) he is not a fit, and B.) he's not the BPA. He is a flashy, sexy pick because he was a Heisman candidate and his team is playing for the national championship. Doesn't make him the best player available for us.
Geno is in the question because he is a definite fit. As would be Tyler Wilson. We need a QB, not a friggin half-time linebacker.
Okay forget Te'o you convinced us we don't need him, what about a CB or SS or DL or OL (we might be losing our LT that no one thought was any good a couple of years ago)? If a QB does not step up between now and the draft you want to reach for one even if he ends up like J Russell instead of the best player available at our pick? Look at how that pick has screwed our favorite team to hate.
I think Stephenson has played very well and he can take over at LT. He held his own vs Dumervil and Von Miller in the Donks game.

Everyone saying he's not a fit is basing there judgement off what we have today. This team has SO many questions going forward. New GM? New Head Coach? Who's that coach? What will that coach and Gm do with the current players? If a player is good enough a good head coach can find a way to use him. Is Teo good enough for that? I don't know you don't know. We have to look. LB might not be a need right now but as bad as we have been this year means theres a good chance of some BIG time changes being made. It's just to short sighted to rule anything or anyone out at this point.
If they switch to a 4-3? Even less of a need for him.
