Georgia's Ogletree headed to the NFL

1/1/2013

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Unlike teammates Jarvis Jones and Aaron Murray, Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree didn't need any extra time to make his decision about his football future.

Immediately after the Bulldogs beat Nebraska, 45-31, in Tuesday's Capital One Bowl, Ogletree announced he will enter the 2013 NFL draft.

"It was tough for me to make the decision to actually come out, but over the break, I met with my family and met with some of the coaches and just talked to the people I needed to talk to to make the decision," the junior linebacker said. "I felt like it was the right decision for me to do."

ESPN draft analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay both rate Ogletree as a top-20 NFL prospect. In recently rating Ogletree as the top junior inside linebacker in the nation, Kiper wrote, "He could be a top-10 pick, and I think teams could move him all over."
