As much as I liked Ogletree. The guy was a solid stud. However, my impression is
he will be a non-drafted free-agent and practice squad member at best.
We'll see. Let's hope I'm wrong.
It never hurts to dream and work hard to make those dreams come true. Even if
Ogletree doesn't make an NFL team the work ethic and perseverance will help
him be successful elsewhere in life! Good luck to him and all the guys trying to
Good luck, tree. It's not over til you say it's over!
I'm surprised that Joe Kruger got an invitation, but not Dave. I always
thought that Dave the the bigger and the better of the two. I'm also surprised to see Boo Anderson working toward the upcoming draft.
I don't recall him getting a lot of playing time. And if one can't
crack the starting lineup on a 5-7 college team, why would they think
they'd suddenly have the chops to make in on an NFL roster?
Why don't BYU trainers get their guys ready for the season with toughness
like this? Why don't they have the guys competing at a top physical level
during the season... ATTENTION OMER.
Lets hope that Ogletree put as much effort into his class work at BYU as he did
football. The real benefit of a scholarship is just that scholarship. If he has
a decent education and degree from BYU, that will be worthwhile to him for the
next 30-35 years. Hope he took advantage of that scholarship.
@IdahoCoogAgree totally - maybe they should hire Dave Stroshine to
run their training program or at least bring him in as a consultant. Get him in
If Ogletree gets a chance I think he will perform well for an NFL team. Even if
he gets picked up by an NFL team, I'm not sure he will get a legitimate
chance to make the roster. NFL teams always give higher draft picks a lot more
chances to make the roster. Good luck to him, hope he gets a fair chance with

they're bigger, faster, and stronger in the league...
What can it hurt to at least try. All they can say is no your not good enough. I
didn't know that Ogletree was that big. And if he runs 4.5 he could get a
shot good luck to all.
Might find a spot player role with a lower team, but doesn't have the drop
back speed , penetration skills or power in a pro game.
But he has more heart that practically anyone. No one thought he would make it
at BYU either, and he proved everyone wrong. Aside from injuries, he would have
been a legitimate 3 year starter. No one ever thought that about him when he
first showed up on campus after his mission. He'll follow his dreams for a
while, and see where they take him. He's actually a smart kid, and if this
doesn't work, he's planning on going to law school.
