NFL Draft: Alec Ogletree Charged With DUI

New, comments

For those folks out there that are hoping that University of Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree could potentially fall to the Vikings. . .well, it appears that he's just enhanced his chances.

According to Pro Football Talk, Ogletree was arrested last week in Arizona and charged with Driving Under the Influence.

"Last weekend, my client Alec Ogletree was pulled over for speeding and a lane violation in Arizona," agent Pat Dye 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."

As it stands now, Ogletree might be the top linebacker prospect in this year's draft after Manti Te'o's. . .whatever the heck that was. But as PFT points out, this isn't his first screw-up. . .during this past college football season, he was also suspended for four games after a positive drug test.

Ogletree has been the only linebacker to appear in our Mock Draft Database thus far. With another red flag on his resume, there's a greater chance that he could drop to the 23rd spot in the first round. However, if the way the Vikings have viewed draftees in recent years is any indication, if that's the case, he'll probably fall right past that spot as well.
