The St. Louis Rams are opening up training camp and one rookie is going to be getting a little extra attention. First-round pick Alec Ogletree will be getting to learn from former Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bullock. Rams head coach Jeff Fisher coached Bullock in Tennessee and he is now bringing him in to teach his newest linebacker.
From veteran sportscaster Howard Balzer:
Former Titans LB Keith Bulluck will be at Rams camp Sunday night through Wednesday. He’ll be working with rookie LB Alec Ogletree.

For Ogletree, this could be the best thing to happen to him as he looks to get his career off on the right foot.
The former Georgia Bulldogs star entered the league with some character issues, but now he will have a quality mentor that will be able to help him learn the ropes of the NFL. It also helps that Bullock and Ogletree are/were very similar players.
After the Rams landed Ogletree in the draft, Fisher said that his new linebacker reminded him of his old Titans star.
Fisher can only hope he gets that type of production out of Ogletree throughout his career.
