New York Giants grab Solid Linebacker From Los Angeles Rams

The New York Giants finally addressed the linebacker position this offseason with the trading for Alec Ogletree.

Once an appealing prospect for the Giants in the NFL Draft, Ogletree went to the Los Angeles Rams where he developed nicely.

The Giants will give up one of their fourth-round picks and a sixth-round pick for Ogletree. Adding a versatile hybrid like Ogletree will strengthen the run defending game and provide value to a James Bettcher 3-4 defense.

We should expect to see the Giants address the linebacker position in the draft as well. Players such as Rashaan Evans or Darius Leonard could be on the priority list for Dave Gettleman entering the second-round.

The bottom line, the Giants will have a completely new linebacking corps next season,  which should assist in the defense reaching new heights.
