I have said since late September that I feel as if there are two ILB in this draft who fit that bill. Manti Te'o and Kevin Minter.

    Ogletree is the most athletic ILB in the draft, fast, strong good against the run and pass...don't see why that is a bad thing. If you want a traditional thumper type go with Zack Boren in the 5th.

    Any chance that you all are buying in to another one of this guy's acts/lies? I'm sorry, but I'm more jaded than to think that a 22-year old kid with unlimited midwestern co-ed tang at his beck & call, would be so gullible to fall for some long-term internet relationship where he never got to sniff the tang, not one bit. You gotta try hard to believe that.

    Ogletree was suspended for the first 4 games of this past season for marijuana use. I realize we drafted Mike Adams even though he was also a known pot smoker but after what happened with Ta'amu and Rainey this past season I think Ogletree will be off our draft board.

    Here is Ogletree against Alabama...he had a big game against NFL talent.

    While his strength isn't thumping...he is electric...could even put him at OLB. Gotta love a linebacker that fast and athletic.

    Ugh...didn't know that. Yeah, that will hurt his chances to be a Steeler.

    I agree with that. Olgetree is a beast but I would prefer a more traditional run stuffer (Te'o/Minter), along with a cover linebacker (Timmons).

    Not me. I'm not jaded by one game. I saw Te'o a lot over the past 4 years and he is better coming forward than Ogletree is. Olgetree is a great pursuit player but coming forward is a different story.

    This kid was talking to a guy faking a female voice. Im sorry but this Teo kid has bust written all over him. He is average physically and his instincts are suspect.
