Buddy on players’ off the field issues

Posted by Chris Brown on February 21, 2013 – 2:08 pm

Linebacker is a position of need for the Bills this offseason, and a couple of the more highly regarded prospects have off the field concerns. Bills GM Buddy Nix was asked if such a player would be taken off of Buffalo’s board completely.

Appearing on WGR Sportsradio 550 Thursday morning by phone from Indianapolis, Nix said Manti T’eo and Alec Ogletree, who was arrested for suspected DUI last month, will not be taken off their draft board at this point.

“We’re still evaluating that process. We’re evaluating them as football players first and if there’s something habitual and continuous with their conduct then we’d take it into consideration,” said Nix. “But at this point we don’t take anyone off our board.”

Ogletree also served a school-imposed four-game drug suspension while at Georgia.
