Plenty of Bulldogs evaluating NFL Draft status

Some Georgia players are contemplating leaving school early for the NFL Draft, linebackers Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree chief among them.


Georgia Bulldogs junior linebackers Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree are projected to be first-round selections in the 2013 NFL Draft, should they choose to leave school early. Freshman Jordan Jenkins said he doesn't expect those players to stay in college.

"All that money, I’d be gone," Jenkins said. "I don’t know what they’re doing, but I think everybody knows. Everybody in their mind already knows that they don’t think they’re going to stay another year."

ESPN analyst Todd McShay's mock draft has both Jones and Ogletree going in the top 20 of the first round.

Ogletree led Georgia in tackles this season with 98, while Jones was third with 77. Jones led the team by a wide margin with 22.5 tackles for loss, including a team-high 12.5 sacks.

Additionally, tight end Arthur Lynch is seeking a draft grade from the NFL draft advisory committee, but he says he'll likely be back at Georgia next season. Garrison Smith also said he will return to Athens.
