Alec Ogletree leaving Georgia for 2013 NFL Draft

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Alec Ogletree will forgo his senior season, and instead will enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

Georgia Bulldogs junior linebacker Alec Ogletree announced that he will forgo his senior year, and instead will enter the 2013 NFL Draft, according to the Athens-Banner Herald's Marc Weiszer.

Appearing in nine regular-season games for the Bulldogs in 2012, Ogletree recorded 98 tackles, including 8.5 tackles for loss, and two sacks. Ogletree intercepted one pass, while breaking up five more and also returned a blocked field goal for a touchdown in 2012.

Ogletree capped off his Georgia career on Tuesday, as the Bulldogs defeated the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Capital One Bowl, 45-31.

ESPN's Todd McShay projected Ogletree to be selected with the No. 17 overall pick in his first mock draft, and noted Ogletree's "freakish athleticism" and upside.

SB Nation's latest mock draft, however, has Ogletree falling later in the first round -- all the way to No. 31, where the Broncos are currently projected to pick.

Ogletree will have ample time to improved his draft stock between now and April, and as of early January, appears to be a mid-to-late first-round pick.
