Georgia Bulldogs' linebacker Alec Ogletree will forgo his final college season and enter the 2013 NFL Draft, according to Tony Pauline of

Ogletree has racked up 98 tackles, 8 1/2 tackles for a loss and two sacks in 2012, while also intercepting a pass and scoring a touchdown after a blocked field goal. Ogletree was extremely productive as a sophomore in 2011 as well, registering 52 tackles, 7 1/2 of which resulted in lost yardage, three sacks and two forced fumbles.

On his most recent Big Board, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has Ogletree slotted in at No. 8. Ogletree is predicted to be selected at No. 17 by the Cincinnati Bengals in Todd McShay's latest mock draft. With the linebacker's departure, Georgia is all but guaranteed to lose two potential first-round picks in Ogletree and John Jenkins, and the Bulldogs could lose Jarvis Jones, who tops Kiper's board, to the NFL as well.

Ogletree will play his final college game on Tuesday against the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the 2013 Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Fla. at 1 p.m. ET.
