John Harbaugh Not Impressed with Manti Te'o's Unimpressive 40-Yard Dash

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterFebruary 25, 2013

The only other thing that would have conveyed how unimpressed John Harbaugh was with Manti Te'o might have been McKayla Maroney sitting next to him. 

Manti Te'o, you run in a way that makes a wise football coach shake his head in disgust. 

As Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun reported, Te'o ran a 4.80 40-yard dash, and Wilson stated, "Te'o didn't look explosive."

Harbaugh agrees. 

Update: Monday, February 25, 3:33 p.m. ET 

It seems Te'o's time was a tad worse than the mediocre number we had earlier. Here is the official time from Rich Eisen.

Manti Te'o's official 40 time is 4.82

It's possible someone was talking to Harbaugh at the exact moment he had his negative reaction.

However, it certainly looks like he is reacting to the Notre Dame star hustling his way down the field to unimpressive results. 

Sure, his time was solid, but it wasn't the kind of run that gets you out of your seat in amazement. Poor Harbaugh is wearing the sad mug usually worn by every fan taking in an NFL Pro Bowl or NBA Slam Dunk Contest

The one thing you don't want to be at the NFL Scouting Combine is underwhelming.

The Ravens are considering taking a linebacker in the draft to replace Ray Lewis.

If Harbaugh's reaction to his 40 time is any indication, Te'o won't be on the list of replacement candidates.

Hit me up on Twitter for more NFL nonsense.
