I want Ogletree as much as the next guy, just don't want to get my hopes up anymore..
(1)Aaron Donald, DT Pittsburgh - (2)Jordan Matthews, WR Vanderbilt - (3)Jack Mewhort, OL Ohio State
(4)Arthur Lynch, TE Georgia - (5)Bryan Stork, C Florida State - (5)Tyler Gaffney, RB Stanford
(6)Prince Shembo, OLB Notre Dame
Quick, name the last LB we drafted in the 1st round.
And the last OT we drafted in the first round.
IMO, those are 2 very thin position for us, and there is a reason we are thin there.
If you dig up the dirt in Oakland, you will find Giant bones
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
Like you said in another post, most likely Ogletree is not on the Giants big board at 19, especially after this latest DUI. 3 red flags dont bode well for him to become a Giant
"Why did it take us three years to figure out Jerel Jernigan can play?" John Mara
The nice thing is that there are other solid ILBs that fit our 4-3 scheme, just not comfortable with his maturity.
i found it telling the analysts were commenting how Ogeltree is "gonna be in a lot of trouble if OLmen get their hands on him. They'll swallow him up...He's very lean almost too lean. He looks like a DB standing inbetween LB's."
I will say this, if we're trying to run a Fewell Tampa 2 concept, Ogeltree would prob be the best MLB possible...Urlacher was also a converted safety. He doesnt come close to Ogeltrees measurements tho
what these analysts are saying is that all these players are average and there are no elite defensive players in the draft, so I think it would be a better choice to go with o-line in the 1st round
