well this will make the play and off field life of Ogletree more interesting next year. I admit to knowing little about him but interesting read. Thanks.
The trade with Atlanta
We through in a sweetener and that was the 7th rounder we got for Salas form the Pats. They cut him by the way.Quote:
In moving back, the St. Louis Rams added a third-round pick (No. 92), and a sixth-round selection (No. 198), while Atlanta gets a seventh-round pick in 2015 from the Rams.
I think there is only so many times you can pick a guy in rounds 3 to 7 and hope they stick on the team, let alone make an impact. Ogletree is a guy that is a top 15 talent if you take away the red flags. Just like Jenkins. Fisher can manage red flags. It was a good deal, and Ogletree is a pro bowler waiting to happen
There's three really interesting takeaways from Kings article.
1. The Rams obviously believe Ogletree will be a true difference maker by declining the Vikings trade.
2. It appears the Rams aren't completely sold with their current depth at LG if they had plans to take Warford if Ogletree was gone.
3. Its very interesting that they were ready to take Datone Jones as well. Are they not completely sold on Quinn/Long? Or, are they using the NY Giants philosophy of loading up on pass rushers to have a solid rotation. My guess is the latter.
Great read. I think Datone Jones would of been a great rusher for passing down situations at DT. Warford was another guy I think highly of, but at the end of the day Laurinaitis will have a running mate for years to come at OLB. Ogletree's chase down ability will make a difference for the defense, I don't expect to see many 20+ yard runs anymore, especially with T.J. and Stewart at safety.
