LT had star written on him even at Carolina.
    No.. Really?

    He attended Georgia's pro day. Ogletree does not have his own.

    There's a lot of talent on that Georgia team.


    Bacarri Rambo, Cornelius Washington, Kwame Geathers, etc.

    I think the point he was trying to make was that LT's scouting report would have a bunch of weaknesses listed. Every player does, on every report. They nit pick, that's the purpose.
    The ogletree "weaknesses" that we're posted are quite typical.

    It's on a different level. The truly elite prospects have very small of minimal negatives listed. A guy like Calvin Johnson, or Patrick Willis, or joe Thomas had nothing bad listed about them. Same as LT. Truly rare talent. Once a decade type player (turned out to be even more rare than that).

    Ogletree is not that type of guy. He's a good player, but not rare. His arm use (lack of) alone probably will prevent him from playing MLB for at least a season. He can't stack and shed at all, which is critical for any inside linebacker. He will probably have to start out at weakside where he can run and chase and be protected up front

    Yeah I mentioned this earlier. It's basically writers just leading into the connection of all the talk of Ogletree being mocked to the Giants. The Giants though could literally be interested in a number of players attending the workout.

    Jenkins also to add to your list.

    Unless the kid really shines in the interview process, I don't see the Giants taking him. Maybe if he falls a few rounds in the draft. I can't see that happening though.

    Baccari Rambo would be a great pick up. Jones could also be a possibility if he falls to 19

    It's doubtful he falls out of the 1st round, but he could drop to the bottom of it.
