Manti Te'o is one of four draft picks who've signed contracts with the San Diego Chargers.  Te'o, the linebacker from Notre Dame, was picked by the Chargers in the second round and signed a four year deal with the Chargers early on Thursday. 

What made bigger news was Te'o fake girlfriend came in at number 69 on the Maxim Hot 100 list as well.  Te’o made headlines when it was revealed that his long-term girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, who supposedly had died of leukemia last fall, actually never existed.

Kekua, who spoke to Te’o through texts, phone calls and Twitter, but whom Te’o said he never met in person, was the alleged creation of a man named Ronaiah Tuiasosopo.
