On the Hoof: Ogletree has wide shoulders and long arms with a narrow waist with athletic legs. It is not just his game, but also his frame that remind most people of Carolina Panther Thomas Davis.
Needs Improvement: He will need to improve pass coverage skills in order to play safety at the next level. Ogletree is a tad stiff in the hips and a bit slow coming out of his backpedal.
Most Impressive: He comes up in run support maybe better than anybody else in the nation, wiping out anything out in his path. Ogletree also seems to have a knack for either making a key tackle or block on special teams.
Conclusion: His affinity for being a special teams monster alone will make it hard for a coaching staff to keep him off the field. Don't be surprised if he ends up playing both safety and linebacker at the next level. His physicality will force coaches to get him on the field in some capacity sooner than later.
