04/28/13 - Linebacker Alec Ogletree knows he lost a lot of money because of mistakes he made while at Georgia, including a DUI arrest a few weeks before the Combine. Considered a potential top-15 pick, Ogletree was selected by the Rams with the 30th pick in the first round. Asked about the difficulty of waiting that long to be selected, Ogletree said, "I was just looking for the opportunity to get my name called. Like I said, coach (Jeff Fisher), they took a chance on me - that's all I was waiting for. As far as where I got drafted, it didn't really matter. I just wanted to be drafted. "Basically, I just had to let them know that everything was behind me. I'm ready to seize the opportunity that they are willing to give me and like I said, I basically have to move forward." - The Sports Xchange
04/28/13 - As for the Falcons, the team Snead worked for prior to becoming the Rams' general manager last year, he said, "This one's probably been in the works a little while. Let's call it over the last couple weeks. They probably flirted with going even farther up along the way, so I think they were trying to get up for a multiple set of picks. They always let us know they would be willing to come up if we were willing to come back." Ogletree lasted as late as he did because of several off-field issues during his college career in addition to being arrested for a DUI a few weeks before the Combine in February.
Said Fisher, "You know people are going to make mistakes and I think that this was a maturity issue. He understands. He learned very well, very quickly here tonight what kind of effect those choices have, but we don't have a concern. We felt, because of some of the issues, that he had a chance to fall. Didn't think he'd go that far, but we were in the right place at the right time." - The Sports Xchange
