  • Alec Ogletree OLB out of Georgia would be a good choice

    If he trains really hard at the NFL level and builds his frame a little he has the potential to be a Pro Bowler. He ran a 4.6, plays angry football and is good in pass coverage because he was a former safety. He would also be a great replacement for Boley. We haven't drafted a linebacker with our first rounder since Carl Banks in 84, it would be nice to have a first round talent at LB for a change. Really hope the Giants draft him.

      There was a thread about him last week. Kid's a good athlete but too much off field bagage for the Giants to risk 1st round money. That was the ovrrall consensus at least.

        Amen to that. More baggage than Te'o. That's apparently possible.

        But then again, I've been declared the "official Ogletree hater" around here (Really i'm more of a baggage hater than anything else ever since Plax decided that the stretch band on sweatpants was a gun holster), so take my words with a grain of salt, I guess...

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

            I like him. hes extremely athletic. but is a 4-3 weakside linebacker. we need a MLB and he need alot more bulk to be a MIKE. However with his off field character issues Reese wont take him. If he slides to us in the 2nd however he is to good to pass up

                LOL on the Plax part smh still pisses me off haha.... Olgetree is a good player who before all of the DUI garbage I would have been fine with taking him with the 19th pick. Then after the DUI I heard that he had issues before that as well. I mean we have grown more accustomed to taking players with some issues but never (to my knowledge) have we used a high draft pick on someone with a questionable character. I mean if somehow he fell to the 2nd where we were picking I really would want JR to pick him just based off of the talent that he has. I also think that he really is not a MLB which is what we really need to solve with our LB core first off. I just do not see any possible way that we pick him at 19 but who knows...

                  great player but another head case like te'o. however isnt this like the 40th thread on this guy?
                  Football has been very, very good to us.
                  After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                  But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                  # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                  1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                  2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                  3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                  4-New York Giants!!!
                  5-NE
                  Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                    I was thinking the same thing. It seems like every time that an Olgetree thread falls past the first page there is another one to pop up soon after lol.

                        The problem is that all 4 of the top ILB (Currently rated in order: Brown, Te'o, Ogletree, Minter) are undersized to be truly a 4-3 mike LB and would have to bulk up... Maybe Te'o is the one that is least undersized, but given how he got abused in that BCS championship I'm not sure he would be the absolute solution either.

                        Either way, most of them would have to convert to weak-side LB in our system, which is the only LB positon we actually already have an answer at with Williams and Paysinger...

                          Yeah I agree. If we are going to use a 1st on a MLB I want there to be no doubt in my mind that he is a MLB and that he can be the future for us at that position. I just really do not see that with Olgetree because of the lack of size, or with Te'o because of how he performed against Bama. I could only imagine what he would look like trying to tackle a starter in the NFL compared to how he looked vs Lacy and Bama.

                            I think that Arthur Brown has some promise as a Mike in our system, he's bulked up before when asked to and I think he could do so again. Also while he's not squeaky clean the way Minter is, he doesn't have nearly as much personal baggage as Te'o and Ogletree... He definitely couldn't start his rookie year in that position though, but if he somehow falls to us in the 2nd round we could definitely grab him and let him develop behind Blackburn (who we would re-sign) for a year, before assuming the starting role in 2014...

                              Minter 6'1'' 245lbs
                              Te'o 6'1'' 242lbs
                              Brown 6' 241lbs
                              Ogletree 6'2'' 242

                              Its not undersized thats the issue its bulk. Minter and Te'o are compact and bulky. Brown and Ogletree are leaner. just as heavy but just putting them next to the other two you can see how much leaner they are. however i do think that if ogletree was to put on another 10 lbs he would be prototype NFL LB.

                              Ogletree is a 4-3 OLB and a 3-4 ILB
                              Brown is a OLB however you look at it

                              i like minter as a ILB for us and either brown or ogletree as OLBs for us. all of which would be steals in the 2nd but overvalued in the 1st

                              P.S. i still love JWill
