"It was cool, man. It was a little nerve-wracking at first. But I felt once I got going," he said, "I felt like I turned some heads."
What are Ogletree's expectations regarding the NFL?
"I'm ready for anything. I've heard anything from late-round draft pick to undrafted free agent," he said. "Whatever happens, I'll live with it. I just want to get into a camp. As long as I can get into a camp and show some people that I can play football, I'll feel really good about it."
Brown, like Ansah, was invited to the NFL Combine last month.
"I was actually a little bit more nervous today than I was at the Combine, with all the (general managers) and coaches around," Brown said. "At the Combine, everybody's up in the stands, so you don't really think about it. You just get into a zone. Here, everyone's on the field. It was a little bit more sped up than I expected it to be. But that's just the way it is. I think they wanted to test us today and see how we'd react to the things they wanted to put us through. All things considered, I think I did well today. I showed the scouts that I can move around well for a guy my size."
Ansah appeared to tire toward the end of his workout, but that's nothing to be concerned about, according to the Saints' Reiprish.
"It looked like he did," he said. "But conditioning is overplayed. You've got to remember, football's a long ways off."
At one point in recent weeks, Ansah had declined an invitation to attend the NFL Draft in New York City because it conflicts with BYU's graduation exercises. Ansah is taking one class — American heritage — this semester and is set to graduate in April.
But after the urging of friends and others, Ansah decided that he'll go to New York.
"I talked to the department to find out if I could walk a different day (in August) than the same day as the draft," Ansah said. "I got that figured out. I get to go to the draft, which is good."
The NFL will fly some of Ansah's family members to New York from Ghana to attend the draft festivities.
"The only thing that's left now is for him to do some visits with some of the clubs that are picking in the top half of the draft," said VanWoerkom. "That will happen over the next few weeks. We'll see where he goes."
