Manti Te'o is on the Dolphins' draft radar, at least to the point of bringing in the former Notre Dame linebacker as one of their 30 official visits.

Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post reports Te'o is traveling to South Florida to visit the Dolphins facility Wednesday evening and Thursday.

Te'o was considered a high first-round prospect before suffering through a poor performance against Alabama in the BCS Championship Game and the scandal surrounding his fake girlfriend. A less than impressive showing at the NFL Combine didn't help his stock, but he reportedly has added the Dolphins to his list of visits that includes the Bears, Chargers and Lions.

SI.com's Don Banks' latest mock draft has Te'o going off the board at No. 25.
