06:25 PM ET 02.25 | The first step in moving away from the hoax was fielding questions about it, something Te'o did pretty well this weekend. The second step was to actually prove he's got the talent to be a first-round pick by putting his skills on display for scouts in Indianapolis. Te'o ran his 40-yard dash on Monday and the result was an unofficial 4.81. In case you're not familiar with how 40-times are judged, a 4.81 for a linebacker is not good. Having a fake girlfriend wasn't the only thing Te'o had to worry about heading into the combine. His last performance of his college football career came in the National Championship game against Alabama and it was as unimpressive as his 40-yard dash time at the combine. After having a Heisman Trophy-worthy season, Te'o disappeared in the Irish's biggest game and the doubting of his talents began there.
