    does the coach have any say on the draft day..who he would like to be picked..or is it strictly JR and his scouts decision?

    The coaches are always involved but the final say is the GM's. Coughlin is asked his input on certain players. The pick is designed to get the best player they are all on board with and what's best for the team itself.

    The ogletree "weaknesses" that we're posted are quite typical.
    That's the point I was trying to make. I think the 2 are incomparable. Think back to Ndamukong Suh when he was drafted. That is representative of what people thought about LT. When I look at the scouting reports for Suh the admit that there isn't much not to like. The same thing would have happened to LT. However, Ogeltree isn't that type of player and I think the scouting report accurately reflects legitimate areas of concern.

    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
    Thank you Slip. LOL I just posted a reply because I didn't see yours, but you said the same thing I said. I used Suh as an example of rare talent recognized by scouting reports comparable to how Scouts saw LT.

    I wouldn't be mad at this pick. There is a good chance Ogletree will be available at #19.

    He already has Connor so Ogletree isn't on the radar.
    Ya cause Connor was signed to be our franchise MLB and everything

    I think TC has always had a say on draft decision all thru out his tenure here and I'm sure by now he has a strong opinion in draft choices but obviously he doesn't have the final word, thats Reese's job.
