    This includes if our entire LBer corps were wiped out by a freak meteor shower.
    Giants have drafted more first round DBs last 6 years than DEs.

      That seems like an overbroad statement.

      • This guy looked nothing near an NFL caliber LB vs Bama. He missed tackles, took bad angles, confused in pass coverage and couldn't shed blocks. No way this guy looks worth a number 1 pick. I like Ogletree considerably more.

          I'm not trying to be a Te'o apologist.

          At this point I'd say both Ogletree and Te'o are going to be overdrafted. 2nd round talents.
          Watch that video I posted. Many times Ogletree is in a one on one situation with Lacy and stops him dead in his tracks. Also shedding tackles and a non stop motor.

          Te'O has a non stop motor, but in that Bama game missed the one on one tackles and got pushed around.

          Same situations, different results. The rest of the players talents had no effect on these specific plays. Did you see Ogletree stuff Lacy at the line?! That was impressive. Ogletree is much faster and would be a perfect LB for the RG3 stuff.

            I like Ogletree over Teo as well.
            I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

            • Agree with others... I'll take Ogletree over Te'o in a heartbeat... I would love to get Ogletree if we go linebacker... I also like Arthur Brown just not sure how well he can hold up against the run over the year. REALLY wish we could have landed Dont'a Hightower last year so we could finally have this position locked up.
              2017 Mock Draft (Pre-combine / FA):

              Rd 1: OJ Howard (TE, Alabama)
              Rd 2: Tanoh Kpassagnon (DE, Villanova)
              Rd 3: Antonio Garcia (OT, Troy)
              Rd 4: Samaje Perine (RB, Oklahoma)
              Rd 5: Davis Webb (QB, Cal)
              Rd 6: Ahkello Witherspoon (CB, Colorado)
              Rd 7: DJ Jones (DT, Ole Miss)

              • It's worth noting that Alec Ogletree failed a drug test earlier last year and was suspended for the first 4 games as a result. That would mark his second suspension at Georgia.

                He was also suspended for 1 game as a freshman for misdemeanor theft.

                That doesn't sound like a guy we pick up in the 1st round.

                  And will probably be why he falls to the third or later. Especially if he has a mediocre Combine.

                  But I'd still take the chance on him .... Georgia has a ridiculous drug testing program (and a little pot never hurt anyone).

                    There is no chance in hell that Ogletree falls to the third.... "or later"??? Not sure if serious. I think he's going to shoot up the boards. The linebacker I REALLY wanted int his draft, CJ Mosley, has decided to return for his senior year, so Ogletree is next up for me.

                    You are right though, Georgia has the strictest drug discipline in the SEC (Kentucky may be right there with them).

                      Excellent point. I didn't know that.

                        Ogletree is getting mocked as a low 2nd rounder right now. A poor Combine will put him solidly into the 3rd round and his off-field issues might stick him lower down depending who he falls down through.

                        Conversely, a great Combine could put him solidly in the latter half of the 1st round (great Combine > iffy character flaws).

                          actually he is in the 1st in a lot of the mocks I have seen,,,chicago seems to be the spot.

                            I think we're looking at different mocks. Gill Brandt just mocked him as the #8 pick to the Buffalo Bills.
