Ogletree was a first-round pick out of Georgia in 2013 and started all but one game he appeared in for the Rams since. Ogletree has 501 combined tackles over five seasons.
Tillerson also lauded the progress Africa, as a continent, has made with democracy.

"Chinese investment has the potential to address Africa's infrastructure gap, but its approach has led to mounting debt and few if any jobs in most countries", Tillerson said.
