St. Louis Rams
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Georgia Bulldogs linebackers Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree were selected 17th and 30th last night in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Manti Teo from Notre Dame was picked….well, his first draft status was imaginary. I don’t mean to keep piling on Teo….Yes, I do. Two Georgia Bulldogs LBs heard their names called at Radio City Music Hall; and ZERO LBs from Notre Dame came to the podium.
The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Jarvis Jones 17 while the St. Louis Rams picked Ogletree 30.
These two Georgia Bulldogs taken in the first round are the first UGA representation since the Cincinnati Bengals took A.J. Green with the fourth overall pick in 2011. The last time a pair of Georgia Bulldogs went in the first round was 2008: Matthew Stafford went first to the Detroit Lions and Knowshon Moreno 12th to Denver.
The Georgia Bulldogs now have 15 players selected in the last three years.
Jarvis Jones was once considered number one overall pick material. In his final game with the Georgia Bu...

FOOD FOR LIFE!
On Tuesday, photos began to surface of former Georgia Bulldogs linebacker — and soon-to-be first round pick in the NFL Draft — Jarvis Jones posing alongside a bust of himself constructed out of Subway ingredients, along with a few other choice items. For instance, raisins were used to re-create his dreadlocks? Now that’s genius. Not only was Jones immortalized in tasty Subway...

And being that the NFL Draft is upon us this weekend, it was only natural for journalists to delve back into what exactly happened.In January, Deadspin broke a story claiming that Te'o's girlfriend, who he believed died of cancer during the season, never existed...
ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Rams have selected Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree with the 30th overall pick in the NFL draft and their second in the first round.
Ogletree likely fills a starting vacancy at outside linebacker for the Rams, who addressed another area of need earlier in the first round and took West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin with the eighth pick.
The Rams entered...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones with the 17th pick of the 2013 NFL draft.
Jones has been linked to the Steelers quick a bit this offseason as the team looked to add another outside linebacker after letting veteran outside linebacker James Harrison go in March.
More coming soon opn the selection as well as the press conference.
Alec Ogletree (ILB) from the University of Georgia.
In September 2010, Ogletree was arrested and charged with misdemeanor theft stemming from a June incident of a stolen scooter helmet. Ogletree was suspended by Georgia for the first game of the season.
In February 2013, just days before the 2013 NFL combine, Ogletree was arrested on charges of DUI in Arizona, per a statement released...
I apologize ahead of time for referring to Manti Te’o as Manti Teo moving forward in this post. For whatever reason, the software I use to create this website, and the SEO plugin I incorporate to get it indexed in the search engines have issues with that apostrophe. I don’t know why. I’ve tried numerous things to fix it, but it just won’t work.
I apologize in advance for...
The Chargers traded up to pick Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o with the 38th overall pick in the NFL Draft.Fantasy Spin:Te'o was a Heisman Trophy finalist last year at South Bend while leading the Irish to the BCS title game. Te'o fell to the second round because of a bizarre off the field incident but he should still be a solid contributor at the pro level.
One of the big story lines of 2013 NFL Draft was where was Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o was going to be drafted.
Te'o ended up getting drafted by the San Diego Chargers with the 38th overall pick in the second round and well, Manti thought he was getting pranked when he received the call.
