There might have been a little tongue in cheek in my comment. It just comes from watching our secondary get burned the last few years and line backers trying to catch receivers running free over the middle.Quote:
To address my good man RK here (I'm not sure if you were fully kidding): The middle linebacker's main focus is to stop the run between the tackles. If he's good against the run, he has a fair chance at being a starter. The same can not be said if he's good against the pass.
I think we end up with Ogeltree.
Jon Bostic, ILB, Florida, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
Bostic looks like a solid prospect, but he's projected in the 3rd round or later for a reason.Quote:
A bit stiff in his upper body and can be eluded in the open field. Relies on his eyes rather than athleticism when in coverage and will likely struggle in this area in the NFL, making him likely a two-down linebacker.
Just say no to trading up. If Ogletree and T'eo are still available when the Bears pick, Vikes should chose the one left over.
