NEW ORLEANS -- One player continues to intrigue me in this year's draft but he comes with a "buyer beware'' tag. His name is Alec Ogletree, a 6-3, 232-pound linebacker who is bypassing his senior season at the University of Georgia.
He might be just what the New Orleans Saints need in their defensive front 7 as they transition to a 3-4 under first-year coordinator Rob Ryan.
Ogletree, 21, has all the physical qualities the Saints are looking for in a young, pass rushing outside linebacker (4.62 seconds in the 40) or an inside player who also can stay on the field in pass coverage.
