I like Ogletree a lot. 1 thing that confuses me is that is he a true MLB? Played FS his 1st 2 years at UGA then moved to LB. You would think he would be an OLB at his size, speed, athleticism, and the fact that he was a formerly safety?
he might be a better fit at OLB in a 4-3, yeah.
he is my pipe dream in the draft for the Saints this year. I'm all for trading down with the Vikings or somebody and being able to take him later while picking up a second rounder also.
I think adding him at inside linebacker would be huge for our team speed on defense. I mean Vilma doesn't seem to have much longer and he's probably not even projected to be a starter at this point. Then you have Hawthorne who never really got into a groove last year plus he was hurt some. And Curtis Lofton isn't exactly the best in pass coverage either.
a big knock on Ogletree is that he doesn't shed blocks well and plays too high sometimes when defending the run. But with the league going more pass happy these days, I'd like to have him.
