NFL Comparison: ILB Lawrence Timmons - Steelers
Former safety (in High School and Freshman year) and needs to get bigger - add some weight and muscle. Hits like a freight train and shows some of the better instincts against the run and pass of the LB class. He's a rangy and long LB who is pretty good is able to use his body/hands to make plays -- keeping OL/blockers away and swatting passes. If he is able to add the weight/muscle and keep his speed he will be an incredibly dangerous LB as he is is almost fast enough to cover some WRs. I say Ogletree is patient and disciplined despite his reputation for being a freelancer because he's grown much more patient changing roles since entering Georgia's line up. He benefited from a good DL in front of him, but still made plays even if the DL didn't dominate. Ogletree also plays Special teams and has made quite a few plays - grabbing onside kicks (LSU 2011) and returning blocked kicks (Alabama 2012). He will need to show he can get stronger/bigger and still be as extremely quick/fast as he is now to end up a 1st round selection.
Currently projected as a 2nd round selection.
