San Diego Chargers rookie Manti Te’o is making all the right plays.

Answering 33 questions in roughly 20 minutes, San Diego Chargers rookie Manti Te’o finally spoke to 41 members of the media on Tuesday.

Taken with the 38th pick in April’s draft, the 22-year-old Te’o inked a four-year contract worth in excess of $5 million on May 10.

Despite ravaging Lennay Kekua’s muff in absentia, the 6-foot-1, 241 pound Te’o has received rave reviews and been labeled an “absolute stud” by San Diego’s suits.

“All (Te’o) does is show up every day and work,” said Chargers head coach Mike McCoy, 41, who succeeded the second-rate Norv Turner in January.

Expected to lineup on three downs from the outset, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo’s wet dream is slated to start at inside linebacker in the Chargers’ 3-4 scheme.

Removed from a disappointing 7-9 campaign in the AFC West, Te’o has a distinct presence on the gridiron that will better the 16th ranked defense in the league.

A solid tackler and natural leader, the former Fighting Irish star relies on intangibles and football smarts to “show up every day and work.”

As normalcy begins to return, Manti Te’o will mature into an “absolute stud” and own “America’s Finest City” within three seasons.
