2013 NFL Mock Draft: Georgia's Alec Ogletree

| by

Here at the NFL Draft Spot we have been going over prospects for next year’s 2013 NFL Draft. Sticking with the Georgia Bulldogs this session we will be evaluating Linebacker Alec Ogletree. Ogletree was a former Safety before moving to Linebacker. Unfortunately Ogletree will start the season off on suspensions for violations of team rules. The suspension will last two, possibly four games. If Ogletree can return with a positive attitude and be ready to get back to work then he will have an opportunity to move up NFL Draft boards.

Scouting Report

  • ILB, OLB
  • Georgia Bulldogs
  • 6’-3’’
  • 236 lbs.

Pros

  • Good athlete, long frame, has room to add more size
  • Proper lateral movement
  • Displays good range
  • Good closing burst
  • Proper pad level(Tends to rise at times)
  • Ability to deliver an initial physical blow

  • Good hips

  • Gains proper depth in zone coverage, transitions well on ball out of zone drop
  • Great motor

Cons

  • Would like to see more lower body bulk and strength
  • Needs to get stronger at the point of attack
  • Poor ball skills
  • Would like to see him attack O-lineman instead of catching blocks(cut blocks)
  • Delayed reaction off snap
  • Needs to work on redirecting Receivers at LOS and Zone Coverage
  • Would like to see him work on form tackling, has to start bringing his legs upon contact(leg drive)
  • Tends to go for the big hit instead of breaking down and wrapping up
  • Would like to see him work on Receivers hip in man coverage
  • Needs to work on hand placement and disengaging(does show promise in this area)
  • Avoids blocks to often
  • Tends to lean on blockers(does show promise in this area)
  • Saw a few mental mistakes on film

Analysis

After evaluating film on Alec Ogletree I saw a lot of positive things. Being a former Safety and only having two years of experience at Linebacker I feel as if Ogletree’s best play is in the near future. Ogletree displays the ability to play Inside Linebacker in a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme, Outside Linebacker in a 4-3 system and possibly 3-4. There are still some technical flaws that Ogletree needs to improve on but with his athletic ability, good instincts, and versatility Ogletree will be rising on my 2013 NFL Draft Linebacker list.
