  • Jerry Reese Attends Alec Ogletree's Pro Day

    Read into this whatever you like, but New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese was in attendance Thursday at the Georgia Pro Day, where linebacker Alex Ogletree was one of the star attractions. Ogletree, of course, has often been connected to the Giants in the pre-draft process.
    Ogletree was apparently impressive during his Pro Day,running a 4.6 40-yard dash. Could Ogletree be on the Giants radar at No. 19 despite the signing of Dan Connor and the return of Keith Rivers?

    While I agree this doesnt have to mean a thing, JR does not attend all Pro Days. Im a happy camper if Ogletree pleased him. I trust JR enough to make that decision for the team and although I like Ogletree, in the end, we all just want the organization to succeed.

    2. Raekwon McMillan ILB Ohio State
    3. Roderick Johnson OT Florida State
    4. Jordan Leggett TE Clemson
    5. Ryan Glasgow DT Michegan
    6. Chad Kelly QB Ole Miss
    7. Billy Brown WR Shepherd

        I wonder how Cornelius Washington looked at his pro day. He is a DE that opened my eyes at the combine. He did not get all of the hype at Georgia like Ogletree, Rambo, Jones, King and Jenkins did.

        Mr Reese is going to give his due diligence when it comes to Ogletree. But I honestly don't think the Giants will draft Ogletree at 19.

            Don't see how the signings of RIvers or Conors would affect the decision to draft Ogeltree.

              I don't see the Rivers or Connor signings having anything to do with Ogletree, they are both only here on 1 yr deals. Reese being at Georgia means he has his eye on someone, but it doesn't necessarily have to be Ogletree

                agreed. Even if Reese were to pull the trigger on Ogletree at 19, it's not like Coughlin would start Ogletree from day 1. He typically does not rush the 1st rd rookies, and as long as Connor and/or Rivers stay healthy, I don't see Ogletree on the field as much, except maybe on ST.

                  This is true. Georgia has a lot of good players but the the focus is always going to be the 1st round prospect when these guys write their articles. In reality though I can see the Giants interested in any of those guys.(Ogeltree, Rambo, Washington, Jones, Jenkins).

                      Mr Reese is just looking at the men in the draft.
                      He already has Connor so Ogletree isn't on the radar.

                        Agreed.....just like with most other positions, if they draft a linebacker, they'll need to get him familiar with the system first....big jump up to defend against pro style offenses.

                          connor is a stop gap.

                            I might be mistaken, but I have never heard anyone(beat writers etc.) mention that Coughlin has gone to pro days. I think its mostly Reese and our scouts that attend.

                            Each team is different, there are teams that do send their head coach and/or coordinators to the pro days along with GMs and scouts.
