    Did anyone else see Manti's press conference on NFL network? He seemed to say all the right things. What does everyone think, does this help his draft stock? I still think he is holding out on some details, but does this matter? Would you want this guy in your locker room?

    Well he's not Pacman, he might be dumb but he's harmless.

    I saw it and it should definitely help. This fake GF thing is such a non-issue. He said all the right things, measured in at near prototypical size and his tape save for one game is phenomenal. If this kid falls out of the first round shame on these GM's. In the absolute worst case scenario the kid is a liar and lord knows everyone on earth has told at least a few lies in their life.

    I couldn't agree more. From what I saw he appeared to be totally genuine and honest when speaking today. When someone asked him if he felt that all of this negative attention was unfair compared to guys that get arrested I thought he said it as best as you can. He said that people deserve the benefit of the doubt and you just never know what someones going through. Sh!+ happens basically. From here on out he should be judged on football.

    THe kid isn't dumb or something and plays ILB (might be a little different if he played QB). This whole GF issue should make a hill of beans in the draft unless he goes nutty in the interviews. The kid is well spoken, obviously a hard worker and a very good player.

    It was fine as soon as people found out he is LDS. Went from "I don't believe someone could fall for that" to "I can see how he fell for that."
