Manti Te'o was not drafted in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft last night. Although it's not a total shock that no one picked him in the first round—Te'o's draft stock plummeted in recent months thanks to the Lennay Kekua scandal and his subpar 40-yard dash time—most NFL Draft "experts" thought he would be off the board by now. And the fact that he's not seems to have rapper N.O.R.E. concerned.
During the draft last night, N.O.R.E. dropped this hilarious tweet wondering about where Te'o had landed:
Who drafted the dude wit the fake girl?— P.A.P.I. (@noreaga) April 26, 2013
Then, he disappeared overnight and dropped this tweet early this morning:
Manti did they draft him?— P.A.P.I. (@noreaga) April 26, 2013
And, finally, when he realized that Te'o had not been drafted, he dropped these words of advice for Te'o—and all of his Twitter followers:
Football is a very serious sport manti troubles had nothing to do wit his game but people still ain't care be careful in this cruel world— P.A.P.I. (@noreaga) April 26, 2013
Can someone—anyone!—please draft Te'o so N.O.R.E. can stop worrying?! He's clearly concerned.
