Chargers Take Manti Te'o In 2nd Round Of NFL Draft

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Chargers have drafted Manti Te'o, the Notre Dame linebacker who was tricked into an online relationship with a girl that didn't exist.

Te'o dropped into the second round, in part because he struggled in the national championship game against Alabama and its offense full of future NFL draft picks.

1 of those Crimson Tide stars, right tackle D.J. Rucker, was selected by the Chargers in the first round Thursday night.

The Chargers traded with Arizona to move up seven spots and select Te'o.

The Chargers need inside linebackers because Takeo Spikes was released and Demorrio Williams is a free agent.
