A lot of guys are on one year deals and I don't see them carrying the bigger contracts like Rolle's after this season also. Most rookies don't have a key role going into their first seasons. It's usually the following year when they're asked to step up and play the bigger role.
    True, but it seems that they put more value in their DL, then secondary, and then the LB's. the DL has just TWO reliable guys and a but of hopefuls. The secondary has one reliable CB, a couple of promising Safeties, and a bunch of hopes. The same can be said of the LB's, but they seem to draft DL and secondary early.

      Stevie Brown and Will Hill proved themselves last year. Our LB's are so weak it is embarrassing. There is no upside there.

        It's not really the DUI itself that is the problem. As you say, that could have happened to lots of us in our youth. It's the fact that he got a DUI one week before the combine, when he knew that he that his character was already an issue.

          Dude your just wrong. Lawrence Taylor was being talked about for Heisman consideration early in his last year at Carolina. He was drafted #2 overall at the LB position before the LB was known as a celebrity position that it is now. Parcells said he was the best prospect he had seen at LB in a long time! LT had star written on him even at Carolina.
          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 not only a DUI on his resume. There's a failed drug test with suspension, and an arrest for theft as a freshman.

                He attended Georgia's pro day. Ogletree does not have his own.

                There's a lot of talent on that Georgia team.


                Bacarri Rambo, Cornelius Washington, Kwame Geathers, etc.

                  I think the point he was trying to make was that LT's scouting report would have a bunch of weaknesses listed. Every player does, on every report. They nit pick, that's the purpose.
                  The ogletree "weaknesses" that we're posted are quite typical.

                      It's on a different level. The truly elite prospects have very small of minimal negatives listed. A guy like Calvin Johnson, or Patrick Willis, or joe Thomas had nothing bad listed about them. Same as LT. Truly rare talent. Once a decade type player (turned out to be even more rare than that).

                      Ogletree is not that type of guy. He's a good player, but not rare. His arm use (lack of) alone probably will prevent him from playing MLB for at least a season. He can't stack and shed at all, which is critical for any inside linebacker. He will probably have to start out at weakside where he can run and chase and be protected up front

                        Yeah I mentioned this earlier. It's basically writers just leading into the connection of all the talk of Ogletree being mocked to the Giants. The Giants though could literally be interested in a number of players attending the workout.

                        Jenkins also to add to your list.

                          Unless the kid really shines in the interview process, I don't see the Giants taking him. Maybe if he falls a few rounds in the draft. I can't see that happening though.

                            He does attend. Don't know the last one he visited but he was at JPP proday in '10.

                              Baccari Rambo would be a great pick up. Jones could also be a possibility if he falls to 19

                                It's doubtful he falls out of the 1st round, but he could drop to the bottom of it.
