The Browns should look at Alec Ogletree, but the veteran shouldn’t be the top priority in trying to find someone to fill in for Mack Wilson.

The University of Georgia product has logged a lot of miles since being a first-round pick of the Rams back in 2012.

That said, he’s experienced, still flashes some nice speed and has a veteran where-with-all that the Browns could certainly use. Sure, that doesn’t matter to the analytically oriented front office, but this team needs bodies–and the Browns are desperate.

Perhaps the Browns add him, and rotate him with someone such as WIllie Harvey and Tae Davis. While Ogletree’s durable, he’s not exactly been a stalwart at stopping the run or dropping back into coverage.

That said, he could be used situationally as a blitzer, where he compiled a 76.0 game from PFF last season.
