Manti Te'o runs 40-yard dash in 4.82 seconds; Alec Ogletree runs a 4.62

Notre Dame star middle linebacker Manti Te'o ran the 40-yard dash in 4.82 seconds Monday at the NFL scouting combine, an average time.

With NFL brass, including Ravens coach John Harbaugh, looking on, Te'o didn't look explosive.

It isn't really surprising that Te'o wouldn't run a fast time. It's regarded as an acceptable clocking.

Meanwhile, Georgia inside linebacker Alec Ogletree, who faces character questions after a recent driving under the influence arrest and after serving a four-game suspension for a failed drug test last season, ran a 4.62 twice.

Te'o, who has been the subject of scrutiny after it was revealed that he had been duped by Ronaiah Tuiasosopo into a phony Internet relationship with a fabricated woman named Lennay Kekua, conducted a 15-minute news conference Saturday to address questions about the episode.

Now, NFL teams are going to weigh Te'o's game tape -- including his struggles in the Fighting Irish's blowout loss to Alabama -- and lack of ideal athleticism with how he handles the interview process in meetings with teams.
