Not his first time in trouble either.  Some of you liked him for the Jets. He could possibly slide pretty hard after this into the 2nd,

Alec Ogletree arrested for DUI
Updated: February 17, 2013, 11:18 AM ET
 
Alec Ogletree,the former Georgia linebacker and a likely first-round pick in April's
NFL draft, was arrested earlier this month for DUI, his agent told
Profootballtalk.com.

"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 declared for the draft immediately after the Bulldogs beat
Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl in January. After totaling a team-high
13 tackles, three tackles for a loss, a sack and forcing a fumble that
he also recovered against the Cornhuskers, the junior finished the
season with 111 tackles and 11.5 tackles for a loss in just 10 games.


ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has Ogletree getting taken with the No.
8 overall pick in his latest mock draft, calling the 6-foot-3,
237-pounder "a great pursuit player and a guy who will shoot gaps and
make stops in the backfield." Fellow ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay has
Ogletree going with the 19th pick in his latest mock draft.


The DUI arrest, though, could alter teams' thinking, especially since
this is not the first time Ogletree has had trouble off the field.


Ogletree, who played safety as a freshman before shifting to linebacker
as a sophomore, missed Georgia's first four games this past season after
failing drug tests during spring practice.

Hopefully this completely devastates his draft stock and falls to us in the 2nd round!!!

 

But seriously though, these kids are ******* morons.  One stupid decision can cost you millions.

 

Although, I guess it still didnt hurt Justin Blackmon...or did he get his after the draft?

His was after.  And as the article stated, Ogletree has had off field issues before.

It was after.  FWIW, that was Blackmon's 2nd DUI.  Wonder what it would have done to his stock...could help predict what will happen to Ogletree's stock.

At the very least it makes who is the first MLB taken now very interesting.

failed drug test.  drinking and driving.  I'm good with young guys screwing up now and again.  But I find having a fake girlfriend far less troubling than having possible substance abuse issues.  and Te'o will drop out of the top twenty for that nonsense.

Te'o was catfished, Ogletree was DUI'ed. That leaves Kevin Minter. Who might actually be the best of the 3 anyway.
