NFL Mock Draft 2013: Bears select Alec Ogletree

Chicago lost Brian Urlacher, so the need for a middle linebacker is of paramount importance.

USA TODAY Sports

In SB Nation's latest NFL mock draft, Dan Kadar has the Chicago Bears taking middle linebacker Alec Ogletree of the Georgia Bulldogs with the No. 20 overall pick, replacing Brian Urlacher.

Ogletree has all the talent in the world but the knock on him has come off the field. Ogletree has been in trouble with the law a few times, including a DUI arrest a week before the NFL combine in February.

With Georgia, Olgetree showed a unique blend of size and speed. At 6'2 and 240 pounds, Ogletree can play sideline-to-sideline while having the size to play at the point of attack. However, he does struggle at times with being able to shed blocks because of a lackluster technique.

Ogletree is the typical boom-or-bust guy. If he works hard and studies, there is no telling how talented he can be. However, if he continues to have off-the-field problems and shows a lazy nature -- which he's rumored to have -- the team that drafts him may regret it.
