Report: Te'o dined with Vikings' GM before Notre Dame's pro day
Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o met with Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman the night before the Notre Dame's pro day last month, according to Sports Illustrated's Peter King.
The Vikings also have the 25th pick.
Aside from meeting last month, Te'o reportedly has visited Minnesota, as well.
Still, Te'o appears to have several suitors, and it will come down to who's willing to pull the trigger first. That may well be the Vikings, especially given Spielman's apparent affinity for Notre Dame players. As general manager, Spielman and the Vikings have drafted five players out of South Bend, including trading back into the first round last year to pick up safety Harrison Smith.
Spielman spoke in February about what a team will have to do before drafting Te'o.
"Every team will make their own determination," Spielman told 1500ESPN.com. "How do you compare what happened -- because he's an extremely talented football player -- against a guy who may have a drug issue or may have an arrest record or may have some other off-field issue? Everybody's going to have, just like on any player, their difference of opinion. We'll go through that process as well."
