      Ogletree is the guy! Just once I would love to see the Giants pick the guy I want in the first round, haha.

      Patrick Willis wasnt totally out of our reach, and we didnt go after him, HUGE MISTAKE! Dont pass on another talented inside linebacker Reese! Fix the weakest part of the D!

        1. The Giants rarely tips their hand and 9 times out of 10 uses the misdirection play when it comes down to draft picks.

        2. The "Cowgirls are picking directly in front of the Giants. They will not hesitate to trade back, to elp another team snag a Giant prize.

        3. The Giants typically drafts "BPA" (Best Player Available). Which, in a way. makes a case for watching Ogletree.
        I was thinking bringing in Rivers and Connors was just a smoke screen, other teams behind NY will feel they dont need to trade up to get Ogletree.

          Ogletree is going to be a stud LB in the NFL. Hope it is with us. With that said, there are plenty of players to watch at the Georgia pro day. That D was stacked with NFL talent.
          WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

            Willis was completely out of their reach. And it was Revis the giants attempted to trade up for. But the jets offered more

              I don't understand the smokescreen theory in this instance. It wasn't Ogeltree's pro-day, it was Georgia's pro day. For all anyone knows, JR could have been there watching other Georgia players. Not sure how his attendance would create a smokescreen about our intentions re: Ogeltree, even if it was JR's intent to create a smokescreen.

                I like Ogletree, but lets face it we know how the Giants work on draft day! They will take the best player on the board at the time of there pick! I would hope though, the best player is a LB

                  To add regarding Ogletree and his potential in the NFL. I have heard some of the guys on NFL network and other media outlets/websites mention that Ogletree may be better suited to the Will position in a NFL 4-3 defense. I think Mayock mentioned that he is more of a run and chase type backer that needs to be kept clean by the D-line in front of him, hence not as suited at the mike position.

                  No doubt Ogletree has some talent and skills, and he very well could have a solid career, and can possibly be a probowl player.

                  But he better get his head screwed on right, otherwise he could end up like many other talented players that come into the NFL, physically gifted, but lacks the discipline/character/maturity to have a successful career.

                  That said, I would not be upset if the Giants pass on him in the 1st rd of the draft.

                    I agree with you. There is no telling who they were scouting. Maybe saying they are creating a smokescreen is highly conspiracy theory. But it still remains, that the Giants almost always go to the "BPA" strategy in the early rounds and draft for needs in the later rounds. And I also must add what another poster posted, the Giants are often quiet about who they will target.

                      You obviously didn't see LT play in College.

                          Not to sound like a homer, but I've seen this kid play in high school before watching him at UGA. This kid played safety in high school and he was truly a beast and hit like a Mac truck. Ogletree will upgrade our linebacker position giving us the big play backer we have been waiting for!!!!!!
