Alec Ogletree leaves Georgia for 2013 NFL Draft

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Alec Ogletree announced that he will declare for the 2013 NFL Draft.

Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Alec Ogletree has announced he will declare for the 2013 NFL Draft after the 2013 Capital One Bowl, confirming earlier reports.

Ogletree had an impressive season, compiling 98 tackles and two sacks. Ogletree also had an interception and returned a blocked field goal for the touchdown in the SEC Championship Game.

The linebacker is considered a consensus first-round pick. ESPN's Todd McShay predicts that Ogletree will be selected by the Cincinnati Bengals at 17, while Mel Kiper has Ogletree as the eighth best player on his Big Board.

The Bulldogs are now losing at least two first-round talents in Ogletree and senior nose tackle John Jenkins. Junior linebacker Jarvis Jones could also leave for the NFL Draft, and would likely be one of the first players selected.

Ogletree leaves Georgia on a high note, taking part in the team's 45-31 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
