    For those who want Ogletree

    Per Rotoworld:

    NFL Network's Mike Mayock says he is "scared to death" of Georgia LB Alec Ogletree as a first-round pick due both to off- and on-field concerns.
    Ogletree is a candidate to slide out of the first round because his character is a nightmare. "Im scared to death about Ogletree, both for on- and off-the-field issues," Mayock said. "When you put the tape on, he has no clue what hes doing. He looks like a safety that somebody plugged inside at inside linebacker. He just runs around." Mayock also called Ogletree's work ethic and passion for the game "question marks right now."

    There was the same rumblings about Ahmad Bradshaw when we drafted him. He was considered a "thug" and "criminal" by far too many. Ultimately, when everything is put into relative perspective, AO has been a saint compared to Aldon Smith. Talk about totally and completely pissing your career away. I'm not sure what Aldon's middle name is but he should probably change it to something that starts with an S. That way he can become one with his initials.

    The draft boards miss some of the old names I see in this thread.

    Guy with off field character issues turns into a lockeroom leader.

    Well, Ive seen Ogletree in several games last year, and I like what I saw. He has all the physical abilities, just maybe didnt have the great coaching needed to keep a player going 100% all the time. Thats where our coaches step in. Ogletree is a pure athlete, like JPP was when we drafted him. JPP didnt always show he would be great on his college tape. He needed to learn, and still learn how to overcome things. Like I said though, the one thing that bothers me about Ogletree is the off the field stuff.
    If we only listened to me 5 years ago lol

    I normally love Mayock, but I think he is off here. I saw him playing vs Alabama. The dude can play. He was tackling Lacy one on one, shedding blocks by Bama's Olinemen, and covering sideline to sideline showing he can handle.the read option mobile QBs.

    Off the field, yeah that could be an issue though.

    Ill be honest, so was Javis Jones and most of the Georgia defense that is ranked very high in this draft. In fact, so are most defenders not locked into that stereotype of "blue collar, non stop motor white guy".... Ogletree is a beast. If we pass on him, unless it is for another great player, we will look back at this as a huge miss to fixing our LB situation. Dude is PERFECT to help us vs the Mike Vick / RGIII, even Tony Romo scrambling moble QBs.
    Thank you

    Thank you very much

I was on the road all day picking up a freinds kid in PA and hes a cowboys fan , so we shared a bit, with his team getting more air time because of where they are opposed to us in standings. I heard bits and pieces about a fray though. Can anyone enlighten me on who and what went down?
    Ogletree nearly laid out Odell about 7 yards outside the sideline. Benches clear.

    And people laughed at me when I said character issues.
