Kevin Ogletree is an American football player currently with the Dallas Cowboys.

PRO:

Kevin Ogletree arrived in Dallas immediately after the 2009 NFL Draft as a collegiate free agent with a long shot to make the club. He impressed coaches with his hands, speed and knowledge of the game through the offseason and preseason enough to earn a spot on the club's active roster. He finished the preseason second on the team with seven catches for 87 yards and a team-high two touchdowns while returning five kickoffs 142 yards for a 28.4 average. During the regular season, the promotion of Miles Austin to one of the starting receiver spots at Kansas City (10/11) gave Ogletree the chance he needed to get on the field. He settled in as one of the team's kickoff returners, finishing the season second on the team with eight returns for 166 yards, while also seeing time in multiple receiver sets to finish with seven catches for 96 yards. With one year of experience under his belt, Ogletree once again should find a way onto the Cowboys roster as a reserve in a deep receiving corps while also seeing time on special teams.
