Why does no one want to take a LBer? Alec Ogletree would do WONDERS for this defense

      LOL and do I care? Who called JPP to the Giants? No one so I couldn't care less. The Giants started two 6th round LBs in 2011 and resigned a vet off the streets and you think all of a sudden they're going to draft a LB in round 1?

      And the last time the Giants picked an olineman in the first was since Nam so again you think that's going to be broken? Okay then.

        For real. Every day there's at least 3 new threads about how we need to take a LB.

          Wait after Nicks, Wilson, JPP, Prince, KP are we still questioning Reese's preference for BPA in the 1st round? Relax, JR has got this!

          Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

            It's been since '99 that we drafted OL in the first. And as far as trends are concerned, before we drafted Wilson last year, it had been since '00 that we drafted a RB in the first.

                This guy can also play safety.

                  Damn straight I want Ogletree. Unfortunately I want Lane Johnson too... OT is the MOST important position to fill, not LB (though it is a close second)

                  I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                    1st Ogletree
                    2nd Sheldon Richardson
                    3rd Sharrif Floyd
                    4th Lane Johnson
                    5th Xavier Rhodes

                    of the guys that could be there

                        He was a SS converted to Linebacker...much like Urlacher was. I don't see nothing wrong with that.

                        He's put as the best Middle Linebacker in the draft by many and he's what we need, he should be our top priority.

                          Just arrested for DUI. Also a drug suspension in college. He is starting to look less and less like the type of guy that the Giants would take in the first.

                            yup just read it a few minutes ago on espn.com

                            http://espn.go.com/nfl/draft2013/sto...r-arrested-dui

                            Between the failed drug test last spring and now this DUI, many teams, including the Giants may question his character. I for one like his physical skills, but he may very well end up being a Kenny Britt like player in the NFL, just my opinion.
