Chiefs Meet With Alec Ogletree At NFL Combine

The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly met with Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine, according to USA Today Spots.

Ogletree entered the weekend with character concerns, as he was recently arrested in Arizona under suspicion of DUI. He was also suspended last season for failing a drug test.

Ogletree is a potential first-round selection at MLB. The former safety and measures 6-foot-3 and 242 pounds. Talent-wise, he is considered the best player at his position.

The Chiefs have experience with Georgia linebackers coming to the Combine with character concerns. KC’s Pro Bowl OLB Justin Houston failed a drug test at the event a couple of years ago. At the time, Houston was considered a first-round talent but the slip-up caused him to fall into the third round, where the Chiefs scooped him up. Luckily for KC, Houston has stayed out of trouble since and appears to be on the brink of NFL stardom.

As for Ogletree, he’ll spend the weekend trying to convince NFL teams that he is sorry about his past and that he is committed to turning things around.

It will be interesting to see if Ogletree’s stock is impacted in the same way that Houston’s was. The Chiefs have a serious need at MLB, following the death of Jovan Belcher.

Do you think the Chiefs will be willing to take a chance on Ogletree should he slip to them later in the draft?

    If he is there at pick 34 we better sprint to turn that card in. He would be an immediate impact player on our defense. He could play three downs and allow Berry to stay back at FS in our sub packages.


    They would have to get into his head and figure out if he can change some bad behavior, but he would certainly be a big addition to their linebacking corps. He would give them the best four ‘backers in the NFL.

      I would think Houston could give him some advice:)

  • Jim Harper

    I could see them taking him, but not at 34, but more likely at the top of the 3rd round unless he just kills his interview.
