2013 DBN Mock Draft: St. Louis Rams Select Alec Ogletree at No. 22


With the 22nd pick in the 2013 Dawgs By Nature NFL Community Mock Draft, the St. Louis Rams select...

Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia

This selection and write-up was made by nickjs21:

I'm not unhappy at all with this selection, but I had to chuckle when Cooper, Brown, and Cyprien went in the five picks since I took Tavon Austin. All three were strong considerations for #22. The Rams still need a safety and have an unhappy RT, but Ogletree represents the best player on the board for me and St. Louis figured to add a LB at some point in the draft.

The Rams have two-thirds of a strong LB corps already and a very underrated line, but in the NFC West you're never going to be able to stop adding to the front seven if you want to stack up with your neighbors. Ogletree adds versatility--he's a former safety who covers very well for a LB in addition to explosive closing speed--and a bit of a mean streak. He's already had to answer a number of off-field questions and will continue to do so for the month of April, but if there's one coach who has shown a willingness to value talent over reputation, it's Fisher. Ogletree is a raw athlete and he might take a season to really impact the team, but he should be chasing down Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick for years to come.

What I would be curious of is if any of the teams between the Rams' two picks would have taken Austin or not -- could nick have gotten one of his other preferred players earlier and Austin at this point? Still, the combination is good, but it'll be difficult for the Rams to compete with the powerhouses that are the 49ers and the Seahawks.

The Minnesota Vikings are up next, led by Legoman0721.
