Alec Ogletree charged with DUI

Alec Ogletree, Taylor Martinez AP

Former Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree, a likely first-round pick in the 2013 draft and one of the top prospects at inside linebacker, was arrested recently for DUI.

“Last weekend, my client Alec Ogletree was pulled over for speeding and a lane violation in Arizona,” agent Pat Dye, Jr. tells PFT.  “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.”

It’s not the first red flag on Ogletree’s record.  During the 2012 college football season, Ogletree was suspended four games by the Bulldogs after a positive drug test.

That incident didn’t seem to affect his draft stock.  The next question is whether the latest one will.  Either way, it will give scouts and coaches plenty of fodder for questions at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

    Way to cost yourself first round money young fella

    Bad luck. Guys like him do this almost every night. Unfortunate he got caught this time. I wouldn’t get so worried about his character. He likey won’t get caught again or t least not too often. One or twice a year is okay.

    Welcome to round 2.

  5. jimnaizeeum says: Feb 16, 2013 10:43 PM

    Looks like he’d be a great fit in Dallas

  6. mikelitoris1 says: Feb 16, 2013 10:45 PM

    You can’t fix stupid.

  7. kingpel says: Feb 16, 2013 10:47 PM

    Cool! Meet the Rams new linebacker!

  8. redfield11 says: Feb 16, 2013 10:48 PM

    “Oh I’m about to enter into the most important few months of my life and look like a 1st round draft pick? Well we can’t have that can we…”

  9. jjrs89 says: Feb 16, 2013 10:48 PM

    More ogletree please!

  10. thegreatgabbert says: Feb 16, 2013 10:49 PM

    An Ogletree fell on the draft board and by the time he was chosen no one was around to notice.

  11. firedup1 says: Feb 16, 2013 10:50 PM

    It never ceases to amaze me.

  12. bengalsstillsuck says: Feb 16, 2013 10:50 PM

    Definitely Cincinnati is goin to draft him now wow what a piece of garbage franchise.

  13. buddybowl69 says: Feb 16, 2013 10:53 PM

    Sounds like Jerrah Jones can’t wait to draft this gentleman. He will fit right in with the Dallas Misfits. Go Jerrah, go.

  14. travishole25 says: Feb 16, 2013 10:54 PM

    You’d think guys with potentially millions of dollars on the line would behave a little better right before the draft…

  15. boogymanoflamancha says: Feb 16, 2013 10:54 PM

    Pick me Jerry, I’m a good fit.

  16. kliplee says: Feb 16, 2013 10:55 PM

    this guy is skyrocketing up the Raiders draft board

  17. noring4youstill says: Feb 16, 2013 11:02 PM

    Well he will fit in well with the Cowboys

  18. theboondoggles says: Feb 16, 2013 11:09 PM

    Pats will get him for a 5th now.

  19. 52lightsxout52 says: Feb 16, 2013 11:10 PM

    I hope he is wearing a parachute, because there goes his draft stock…

  20. lostsok says: Feb 16, 2013 11:11 PM

    So he drops on 30 draft boards, and rises in Cincinnati and Detroit.

  21. thepoliticalfirebrand says: Feb 16, 2013 11:16 PM

    You’d think these guys could find someone to drive them home every night. As a college kid, I’m sure there would be someone who would leap at the opportunity to drive home one of the college’s biggest star athletes.

  22. steeltuff says: Feb 16, 2013 11:24 PM

    The thought of calling a cab or having a friend pick you up, after drinking all night at a club, is obviously absent from the minds of today’s athletes–whether it’s an NFL veteran or a standout college draftee, weeks away from signing a life-changing professional contract. Maybe they’ve been coddled and pampered so much all their young lives that somehow they think they’re invulnerable to misfortune.

  23. gadzod says: Feb 16, 2013 11:33 PM

    I now woukd be upset if the Bills take him at #8. We dont need risky players.

  24. higgy1 says: Feb 16, 2013 11:36 PM

    He will make a fine addition to the NFLPA !

  25. dbarnes79 says: Feb 16, 2013 11:45 PM

    Hey I have this multi million dollar lotto ticket and I’m just gonna go ahead and burn it.

  26. skoobyfl says: Feb 16, 2013 11:56 PM

    Crazy bad timing.

  27. ravenmuscle says: Feb 17, 2013 12:05 AM

    Sounds like SERGIO KINDLE II. These guys just don’t get it….AND…typically they don’t change.

  28. buffalobills716 says: Feb 17, 2013 12:08 AM

    Why u tryin mess your future and dream up kid?SMH

  29. jaymo13 says: Feb 17, 2013 12:16 AM

    Welcome to the second round, genius.

  30. larryboodry says: Feb 17, 2013 12:34 AM

    Before, I’d have hoped maybe Ogletree would fall to the Bears at # 20…Now that he probably will, I hope they pass on him.

  31. packerbackernj says: Feb 17, 2013 1:16 AM

    What i learned from these comments is that Dallas, St Louis, Cincy, and Detroit will all be looking to trade up to get this guy.

  32. themagicman1223 says: Feb 17, 2013 1:55 AM

    Then again Oakland is on the clock at #3 him and McClain would make a great character pairing and could be role models for that team.

  33. souldogdave says: Feb 17, 2013 3:06 AM

    Brilliant.

  34. skagersraiders says: Feb 17, 2013 5:19 AM

    Al Davis is gonna roll over in his grave if we don take this guy now!

  35. mikeyhigs says: Feb 17, 2013 7:51 AM

    At least one positive thing about it is at least he is not denying it. I expected to read “the truth will come out eventually” quote.

  36. flipola says: Feb 17, 2013 8:24 AM

    This guy’s looking more and more like a Bengal with each passing day.

  37. samoanjungle says: Feb 17, 2013 9:30 AM

    I was hoping the Bengals would draft this guy but I still haven’t gotten over the Odell Thurman debacle.

  38. shaggytoodle says: Feb 17, 2013 11:35 AM

    At least when Gronk is getting his drink on he doesn’t get behind the wheel.

  39. therealraider says: Feb 17, 2013 12:15 PM

    Just remember; Some team will give this guy million$

  40. stairwayto7 says: Feb 17, 2013 12:20 PM

    Stay classy SEC!

  41. djjackson81 says: Feb 17, 2013 12:36 PM

    Just like Jennings in St. If this dude drops out the first round because his decisions to be and idiot now on two occasions. I would not be surprised to see AZ draft in early in the second to play inside linebacker with Washington.

  42. pftisterrible says: Feb 17, 2013 1:47 PM

    Janoris Jenkins dropped to the second round because of character concerns, was the fourth CB taken last year, but he was probably the best of the rookie corners.

    You can’t win with choir boys.

  43. ppdoc13 says: Feb 17, 2013 2:24 PM

    How possibly stupid can you be. You only have to keep your nose clean for a few months. And this idiot gets a DUI. Sounds like a match for the bengals

  44. bubbybrister/shovelpass says: Feb 17, 2013 3:34 PM

    This guys draft slot should be tied with Ryan Seacrest and used to ring in the New Year!

  45. phinfan says: Feb 17, 2013 7:17 PM

    welcome to round 4 and crap money

  46. mjkelly77 says: Feb 17, 2013 8:21 PM

    He would make a nice pick for the 49ers. The player will be following in the shaky footsteps of the coach.

  47. larryboodry says: Feb 17, 2013 8:30 PM

    phinfan says: Feb 17, 2013 7:17 PM

    “welcome to round 4 and crap money”

    I don’t see him dropping that far…Someone will take him in Round 2.

  48. randallflagg52 says: Feb 18, 2013 4:35 AM

    His ex-teamate Justin Houston popped positive for marijuana prior to the 2011 draft and he fell from a late first round talent, to the third round.

    It probably will happen for Ogletree since he popped positive before, and now adds a DUI to it.
