ProFootballTalk.com received a report from former Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree’s agent, that he was arrested earlier this month for DUI. "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 a likely first-round pick in April's NFL draft, has had issues before this arrest.  He 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. This story sounds very familiar to the situation Nebraska cornerback Alfonzo Dennard had last year.  Dennard was a projected late first early second round selection, but when he got into an altercation at a bar, and eligibly assaulted a police officer (Dennard’s trial is going on currently in Nebraska) he saw his stock in the draft drop off the radar. He was selected in the seventh round (224th overall) by the New England Patriots, 28th corner back selected.  Ogletree, who ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has being selected 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. Dennard was a model citizen at Nebraska up to this and it cost him millions for this one issue (serious as it is).  Could Ogletree suffer the same fate in this year’s draft? var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
