    Ogletree is a weakside linebacker at the nfl right now. Run and chase where he doesnt have to take on and shed blockers.
    wow so i wasnt wrong. thats what i thought, and its why id be upset if we picked him at 19...he could become an awesome lb i just dunno how quickly and we kinda need more ready prospects imo

    im seeing why people r intrigued with him. hes actually kinda what wed need imo. hes a converted safety with tremendous athleticism who can rush the edge too...he could end up being our counter to the spread options

    Jacquian Williams, if healthy, will help this season. As could Rivers if he can get healthy
    For Rivers that is a big IF RF !

    He just cant shed blocks. Look at how he runs around with his hands always at his sides. Even when near OL. The total opposite of active hands.

    dont get me wrong. i agree with ur thinking and feel the same and have stated it. i was accosted by some random poster bc i stated what u did in a more subtle way. but i do see some of the intrigue. the athleticism is off the charts, he looks like he could be awesome in coverage...urlacher was a converted safety to mlb...just saying its not like its a set thing hes gonna go one way or the other in terms of success

    i wouldnt be too happy drafting him at 19. if we could move back and get an extra 2nd or 3rd and grab him later then itd change things obviously

    Guess I'm the 1%.

    Ogletree is way better and played a lot tougher competition.
    If you dig up the dirt in Oakland, you will find Giant bones

    3/18/14 Draft:
    1-Aaron Donald DT Pitt
    2-Kareem Martin DE UNC
    3-Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Neb
    4-C.J. Fiedorowicz TE Iowa
    5-Bryan Stork C FSU
    5-Chris Watt G ND
    6-Jeff Janis WR SV

    sorry for the sarcasm but this is ridiculous now.
    Did I say that?

    I live in the Chicago market.....we get nonstop ND coverage out here. They covered everything about him - except the make believe girlfriend he rode all the way though the Heisman competition.

    Fact is, the kid was blown out against the same sort of blocking he'll be seeing in the NFL.....it was the biggest game of his collegiate career, and he was invisible. Great players come up in big games. I frankly couldn't care how many tackles he had against Wake Forest.

    If he played in the SEC, he'd likely be considered a mid-range linebacker. So, no, I'd much rather take a dude like Ogletree that saw SEC running games on a weekly basis.....at least we can get a read on what we can expect against top-level competition.

    Maybe the Combine will salvage his stock, but like I said, it hasn't been a good month.

    Losers assemble in little groups and complain about the coaches and the players in other little groups, but winners assemble as a team,

    GM Jerry Reese: Giants Will Interview Manti Teo At NFL Scouting Combine

    http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2013/01/...uting-combine/

    You think this is a move to make other teams think the Giants will draft him? maybe Reese hopes to make other teams think about this move and maybe take T'eo early so Reese can get the guy he is really after in the draft.

    I think it's a front so other teams can take him early but just my thought on that topic.

    Thoughts?

    it doesn't mean anything, he will interview many other players as well.
