23. Alec Ogletree, LB, Round 1, Pick 30 Overall, 2013

An injury after just four games in 2015 sidetracked Alec Ogletree’s continued ascension as a potential future Pro Bowler at weakside linebacker, but through just over two years in the NFL, he’s already established himself as a force to be reckoned with. Ogletree followed James Laurinaitis, ironically the player he displaced as the Rams’ leading tackler for the past two years, as only the second linebacker in St. Louis Rams history to have over 100 tackles in each of his first two professional seasons.

In addition to being a prolific tackler, Ogletree’s also been sound in pass coverage and has established himself as somewhat of a playmaker. He returned an interception for a 98-yard touchdown as a rookie, and he had two picks during 2014. He’s also accumulated 3.5 sacks over his first 36 NFL games.

Obviously Ogletree will need to be healthy going forward in order to reach his full potential, but for now he looks like a player who can be the Rams’ leading tackler for years to come.
