Scouting Report/Player Notes

**Arrested for DUI prior to Scouting Combine**

Ogletree has been a star since he stepped on campus. I love this note I found at the Georgia athletic site: “Earned one of the team’s David Jacobs Awards as a player who, by example, portrays courage, spirit, character and determination.” Those are important attributes to me in a player. Was the SEC defensive freshman of the year as a strong safety, and now is ranked by many sites as the top inside linebacker in the entire country. Broke his foot in the season opener last year against Boise State, missed seven games, came back and played in/started seven games where he recorded 52 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, two passes broken up, and two forced fumbles. Excellent speed and athletic ability and is a guy who can really make an impact when he is on the field. If his teammate Jarvis Jones is the best linebacker in the country in 2012, he might be the second best. He is a player who is able to be used in a variety of different ways, as a traditional inside linebacker as well as off the edge, but because of his experience as a defensive back, he has really good speed and athletic ability. Capable of blowing up plays in the backfield with elite first step, and if he reads plays correctly he is nearly unblockable, especially with that defensive line in front of him like he has at Georgia. Ideal inside linebacker prospect for any scheme. Should be one of the first players off the board at his position, though ILBs are not valued all that highly on draft day unless they have really special skills. See: Kuechly, Luke. Does a great job of breaking down and delivering big hits.
