Hard to believe, but Alec Ogletree has seen his stock rise drastically already

I was originally going to have Andy Dalton here (more on him later), but instead, I had to throw in a guy who has made the most of his opportunity in a very short amount of time. Alec Ogletree was signed by the Bears less than a week ago, yet he has been dominating on defense for Sean Desai.

Six interceptions. Yes, you read that right. Alec Ogletree — a linebacker — has six interceptions in less than a week at Chicago Bears training camp. How he does not make the final roster would be a surprise. Unfortunately, this means one or both of Josh Woods and Joel Iyiegbuniwe will be gone come August 31, 2021.

Ogletree has always had a nose for the football. He had a season where he recorded five interceptions for the Giants (2018) — exceptional for a linebacker. He has 12 total interceptions for his career. Could the veteran push Danny Trevathan for the starting spot next to Roquan Smith? This is one to keep an eye on as we approach September.
