    The University of Georgia held its 2013 NFL Draft pro day on Thursday, and while a lackluster athletic performance by pass rusher Jarvis Jones dominated headlines, another linebacker performed well - and has found himself on the radar of the Buffalo Bills.

    Alec Ogletree, the twice-suspended linebacker that was cited for DUI in recent weeks, ran a 4.63-second 40-yard dash on Thursday, improving on his 4.7 posted at the Combine in Indianapolis last month. The junior entrant is coming off of an excellent final season with the Bulldogs, recording 111 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, three sacks and an interception in just 10 games (after serving a four-game suspension).

    Jeff Schultz of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Bills are among 10 teams that have scheduled either a pre-draft workout or a visit with the middle linebacker. In Mike Pettine's defense, Ogletree - a former safety with plenty of experience in coverage - would be a three-down player that could line up either on the weak side or in the middle, where he played collegiately.
