    I don't understand the smokescreen theory in this instance. It wasn't Ogeltree's pro-day, it was Georgia's pro day. For all anyone knows, JR could have been there watching other Georgia players. Not sure how his attendance would create a smokescreen about our intentions re: Ogeltree, even if it was JR's intent to create a smokescreen.

    I like Ogletree, but lets face it we know how the Giants work on draft day! They will take the best player on the board at the time of there pick! I would hope though, the best player is a LB

    To add regarding Ogletree and his potential in the NFL. I have heard some of the guys on NFL network and other media outlets/websites mention that Ogletree may be better suited to the Will position in a NFL 4-3 defense. I think Mayock mentioned that he is more of a run and chase type backer that needs to be kept clean by the D-line in front of him, hence not as suited at the mike position.

    No doubt Ogletree has some talent and skills, and he very well could have a solid career, and can possibly be a probowl player.

    But he better get his head screwed on right, otherwise he could end up like many other talented players that come into the NFL, physically gifted, but lacks the discipline/character/maturity to have a successful career.

    That said, I would not be upset if the Giants pass on him in the 1st rd of the draft.
    One day, not today, not tomorrow, not this season, probably not next season either but one day, you and I are gonna wake up and suddenly we're gonna be like every other team in every other sport where winning is everything and nothing else matters. And when that day comes, well thats, thats when we'll honor them--Jack Lengyel Marshall University

    I agree with you. There is no telling who they were scouting. Maybe saying they are creating a smokescreen is highly conspiracy theory. But it still remains, that the Giants almost always go to the "BPA" strategy in the early rounds and draft for needs in the later rounds. And I also must add what another poster posted, the Giants are often quiet about who they will target.

    You obviously didn't see LT play in College.

    Not to sound like a homer, but I've seen this kid play in high school before watching him at UGA. This kid played safety in high school and he was truly a beast and hit like a Mac truck. Ogletree will upgrade our linebacker position giving us the big play backer we have been waiting for!!!!!!
