Alec Ogletree on heading into 2015 season: 'I feel ten times better'

It appears everything may be coming together for Alec Ogletree.

Entering 2015, a breakout year could be on the horizon.

The Georgia product dropped 10-12 pounds this offseason in an effort to be more effective on the field.

"Just being able to move a little quicker, side to side, getting downhill fast, just open up and run. I just wanted to be able to move around and not feel as heavy." Ogletree said, via

NFL Media analyst Gil Brandt noted Ogletree looks much improved, particularly in his recognition skills.

Even Ogletree acknowledged as much.

"I feel ten times better," Ogletree said, via "I understand the defense a lot more, than I did last year. This year is more of a mental approach to the game, versus a physical aspect."

Putting it all together - both from a talent and mental standpoint - come fall could result in Ogletree's best year yet in a Rams uniform.
