One of the top linebacker prospects in the NFL draft was arrested for DUI.
Georgia LB Alec Ogletree was arrested earlier this month for driving under the influence. His agent Pat Dye confirmed the arrest to ProFootballTalk.com. Here was Dye’s comment on the matter.
“Last weekend, my client Alec Ogletree was pulled over for speeding and a lane violation in Arizona,” agent Pat Dye told the website. “After the officers smelled alcohol, they conducted tests and also cited him for DUI. Although Alec regrets this incident terribly, he is thankful that there was no accident and that no one was hurt. Because this matter is still pending, we cannot comment further publicly at this time.”
Ogletree, who was most recently mocked to go to the Bills at eighth overall by ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper, is one of the most versatile linebacker prospects in the draft with the ability to play inside or outside.
According to PFT, Ogletree also was suspended during his time at Georgia for four games due to a positive drug test along with teammate and fellow draft prospect Bacari Rambo an All-American safety.
He’ll obviously have an awful lot of explaining to do during his formal interviews with NFL clubs at the NFL Combine later this week. Buffalobills.com will have full coverage of the NFL Combine from Indianapolis beginning on Thurs. Feb. 21st.
