 SAN DIEGO (AP) - Manti Te'o is just one of the guys.
He's confident he can be a three-down linebacker in the NFL.
It takes some serious leverage to play against tight end Antonio Gates.
Being drafted by the San Diego Chargers has put the former Notre Dame star in a ``perfect place.''
Oh, and Te'o and some friends ``just chilled and had a good time'' last month in Hollywood at a party hosted by Maxim magazine, which included Te'o's fake girlfriend on its list of the world's 100 hottest women.
Te'o spoke with reporters for the first time in more than a month Tuesday as the Chargers opened minicamp.
The questions about football outnumbered the ones about him being at the center of a hoax involving the fake girlfriend.
