    INDIANAPOLIS Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o has answered countless questions here at the NFL Combine, including some from the Titans.

    The Titans are one of the teams who’ve already met with Te’o, according to sources familiar with the situation. Te’o said earlier on Saturday he’d already met with the Packers and Texans as well. Te’o was scheduled to meet with at least 20 teams, he said.

    The Titans have the 10th overall pick in the first round. Teams are allowed to officially interview up to 60 players at the Combine.

    Te’o spent most of his 14-minute plus interview session on Saturday addressing questions about a girlfriend who never existed, a bizarre story that took the focus off his celebrated football career at Notre Dame.

    Te’o said he expects teams to grill him on the subject as well.

    “Quite a few teams asked me about it,’’ Te’o said. “Some go to certain lengths, some just ask me, ‘Just give me a brief overview of how it was’ then they get straight to business.”

    Te’o has no problems answering the questions.

    “They want to be able to trust their player. You don’t want to invest in somebody you can’t trust.,’’ he said. “With everybody here, they’re just trying to get to know you, get to know you as a person and as a football player. I understand where they’re coming from.”

    I seriously hope the staff that met them were all Te'oing when he sat down with them.

    He's definitely gonna have to grow some thick skin but I'm personally rooting for the guy. He seems like a genuinely good dude.

    Wouldn't overly bother me. He's not a criminal\thug so he character should be fine. I'd be a bit iffy if we used a first on him though since we have other needs.

    Not after the catfish drama. I don't want to hear about it associated with the Titans over Teo's career.
