2013 NFL Draft: Alec Ogletree not thinking about next level

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Alec Ogletree has been a wrecking crew all year and isn't ready to move on just yet from Georgia.

Alec Ogletree is one of the best defensive players in college football and would certainly be a first-round pick if he decided to declare for the 2013 NFL Draft.

However, Ogletree isn't ready to commit to anything, saying he hasn't come to that point in the road yet, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"Right now I’m still focusing on this season," said Ogletree, who averaged nearly 11 tackles per game the second half of the season. "I’ve got the rest of this week to go, then I’ll talk to my parents about whatever I’m going to do after the bowl game, then make a decision . . . I’m here right now and that’s all I’m worried about."

Ogletree has been one of the key members of Georgia's dominant defense along with Jarvis Jones, forming a devastating linebacker corps.

At this point, Ogletree is considered somewhat of a sure bet to move onto the next level, but the junior is currently just focused on bringing the Capital One Bowl trophy back to Athens with him.

Ogletree has yet to ask the NFL Draft Advisory Board for an evaluation, something that is customary for any player getting ready to enter the draft. The junior still has a few weeks to make his decision and a game left to play.
