Georgia Bulldogs LB Alec Ogletree 'Leaning Towards' Entering 2013 NFL Draft

Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Alec Ogletree was initially viewed as a member of the Bulldogs defense that could return to school for his senior season, but the latest indication in NFL Draft circles is that the junior inside linebacker will be making his move to the NFL following the end of the season.

NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline wrote:

Earlier we reported Georgia linebacker Alexander Ogletree was leaning towards staying at Georgia.  Sources have since told us otherwise as Ogletree is rethinking his options and will probably enter the draft.  Why?  We’re told Ogletree may not elevate his draft stock all that much by returning to UGA in 2013.  Add in the fact the Bulldog defense will be graduating a tremendous amount of top rated defensive talent to the NFL.

If Ogletree were to declare for the 2013 NFL Draft, he would be one of the top inside linebacker prospects in the draft class.

Ogletree is currently focusing on the upcoming SEC championship game against the Alabama Crimson Tide, but his focus could soon be turned towards preparing for the NFL Draft.

There is no denying Ogletree’s talent and he will generate a lot of buzz during draft season as NFL scouts and personnel take a closer look at the University of Georgia product.
