Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree is one of the Bulldogs’ better tacklers, and he proved that with his WWE-style takedown of Georgia Tech wide receiver Robert Godhigh on Saturday. The expression “tossed like a rag doll” is one of the most overused in football, but Ogletree did just that with Godhigh after the receiver caught a pass over the middle with less than two minutes to play in the first half.
As you can see, Ogletree had Godhigh well within his grasp and decided to completely manhandle him with a variation of a suplex. The play wasn’t quite as dangerous as this bodyslam we saw in the Alabama-Missouri game earlier this season, but it was brutal nonetheless. The difference is it didn’t seem like there was any intent to injure on the part of Ogletree. From a strength standpoint, it’s certainly a play that will grab the attention of NFL scouts.
