This guy looked nothing near an NFL caliber LB vs Bama. He missed tackles, took bad angles, confused in pass coverage and couldn't shed blocks. No way this guy looks worth a number 1 pick. I like Ogletree considerably more.
Te'O has a non stop motor, but in that Bama game missed the one on one tackles and got pushed around.
Same situations, different results. The rest of the players talents had no effect on these specific plays. Did you see Ogletree stuff Lacy at the line?! That was impressive. Ogletree is much faster and would be a perfect LB for the RG3 stuff.
My sliding mock: (mid round pick)
1-Cyril Richardson G Baylor / CJ Mosely LB Bama
2-Shane Skov LB Stanford / Travis Swanson C Ark
3-Louchiez Purifoy CB Florida / Brandon Coleman WR Rutgers
4-Bryan Stork C Florida St / Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Nebraska
5-DeVonte Parker WR Louisville / Chris Watt G ND
6-Kareem Martin DE UNC / Jerome Smith RB Syracuse
Agree with others... I'll take Ogletree over Te'o in a heartbeat... I would love to get Ogletree if we go linebacker... I also like Arthur Brown just not sure how well he can hold up against the run over the year. REALLY wish we could have landed Dont'a Hightower last year so we could finally have this position locked up.
It's worth noting that Alec Ogletree failed a drug test earlier last year and was suspended for the first 4 games as a result. That would mark his second suspension at Georgia.
He was also suspended for 1 game as a freshman for misdemeanor theft.
That doesn't sound like a guy we pick up in the 1st round.
You are right though, Georgia has the strictest drug discipline in the SEC (Kentucky may be right there with them).
