    NY Giants' 2013 NFL Draft Profile: Alec Ogletree

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/25/...alec-ogletree/

    Excerpt: "The New York Giants defense failed at every single level in 2012. The defensive ends were unable to get to the passer, the middle of the defense was soft and the secondary had issues all season in coverage. Unless the Giants were able to force their opponents into turnovers, the team was virtually incapable of defending their opponent. Although Georgia inside linebacker Alec Ogletree would not solve all of the Giants issues, he would serve as a versatile defender in the middle of the defense.

    Ogletree is capable of lining up anywhere on the field. Think of him as the opposite of Mathias Kiwanuka. Kiwanuka, who was drafted as a defensive end, but he is still versatile enough to be a relatively productive linebacker as well. In comparison, Ogletree is primarily a linebacker; however, he still has the speed and athleticism to line up as an edge pass rusher. His 6'3", 232 pound frame makes him a daunting presence in the middle. His speed makes him able more than capable of guarding tight ends and backs out of the backfield. Although he missed four games this season, Ogletree still had 13 more tackles than any other player on the Bulldog's roster." Read more...

    My only worry is that he won't be there at 19. Other than that, he's my pick. Ogletree is everything the Giants have been missing at the linebacker spot for all these years. I can see him tracking down McCoy, RG3, and Murray with ease. Baller

    Complain about blackburn not being able to get off blocks, then say Ogletree will fix that, despite Ogletree easily being the worst stack/shed LB in the first three rounds.

    Not a very good draft profile.

    As a weakside backer in a scheme where blockers are kept off him. Sure

    Olgetree might not be a textbook stack/shed guy, but he does shed blocks in his own way. Alot of that has to do with him being fairly new to the position (only 17 starts at LB). He's very slippery, just watch the Alabama video where he sheds blocks from both Warmack and Jones in the first 1:15. The guy has far and away the most potential of any 4/3 LB in the draft and with added size and a bit of coaching he'll reach that potential. Just on raw skill alone the guy already outproduced basically every LB in the 2013 draft. With that to go with the best physical ability of any 4/3 LB in the draft, its silly to even compare him to any other 4/3LB prospect.

    Running around guys is not shedding blocks. Keep watching that tape, watch whenever an OL has an angle on him its game over for him

    Most of that is just getting washed out of a play by a cut back from a RB and having an Olineman blindside him. Remeber whio he's going up against, Warmack (best run bloking guard in the draft), Fluker (best run blocking tackle in the draft), Williams (best run blocking TE in the draft), Lacey (perhaps the best RB in the draft)....He was far more impressive against Alabama then Teo was, that's for sure
