Ogletree trying to move forward

Posted by Chris Brown on February 23, 2013 – 6:09 pm

Georgia LB Alec Ogletree is a consensus top 10 talent, but his off the field transgressions could have an impact on where he comes off the board. At the NFL Combine Saturday, Ogletree addressed his arrest for suspected DUI last month and his school-imposed four game drug suspension in 2011.

“I’m a good person at heart,” he said. “Everybody makes mistakes and I feel really bad about the situation, but I’m learning from it and I’m moving forward.”

When asked if he’s worried about how his off the field issues could affect his draft stock Ogletree wasn’t sure. 

“I don’t know what it’s going to do, but I feel bad about it,” he said. “I’m really sorry about it, but I just have to move forward and take whatever I get.”

Bills GM Buddy Nix addressed the issues facing Manti T’eo and Ogletree earlier this week.

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