MEDIA PLAY: NATIONAL FOOTBALL POST's Brad Biggs notes the NFL is "anxious to see" how Te'o "handles media when he becomes the spotlight at the Scouting Combine." He has had "ample time to rehearse what he will say to inquiring teams as well as inquisitive reporters" following the news about his online hoax. Spielman said that he wants to "see how Te'o handles both groups." He said, "We'll watch that. I think that's a very valuable part of the process in handling media when they have to talk in front of you guys. It's not a be-all, end-all decision-maker, but we can tell if this guy needs some polish or technique if we do draft this guy on how to handle the media. Or this [guy] is pretty polished" (NATIONALFOOTBALLPOST.com, 2/21).
