Just confirmed on most major news outlets that the bulldog linebacker and name growing in popularity for the draft here was pulled over and cited with DUI last week.

Just an FYI

Alec had a prior for theft in 2010, and a dirty drug test cost him four games last season...

Stay outta frickin' jail, you guys... Lay low for one stinkin' off-season, then get all the things you want.

Well it's a bit late for that.

Does anyone still wanna draft this guy at #8?

Was never a big fan of taking an ILB that high. I wish we would trade down, but that's a pipe dream.

I like Ogletree, but never liked him at #8. Don't think this hurts his draft stock much, IMO.

Never wanted him at 8.  Still don't.  If we traded back to 14-30, I'd be ok with it.  I doubt he falls to us in the 2nd.

Ask a simple question...I could elaborate, but what's the point? In my opinion character concerns have played too big of a role in the Bills decisions over the past decade. In my opinion I'm not looking to hire the guy to be a role model for the community. I want him to get after the opposing QB and win football games. Some have strong opinions because its a DUI. That's fine. I don't happen to share them. I think he made a dumb choice. Hopefully he learned a lesson, but I bet it won't affect his on field performance one bit.

That's some poor-ass judgement in the run-up to the draft.  Pass. The bills have enough problems without having to babysit a grown man.

I agree. Over the last 10 years it seems that no one is good enough to be a Buffalo Bill. We are more concerned about bringing in good role models than good football players, too bad there isn't a Superbowl for good role models. Granted there is  no sure shot way of knowing if you are picking a Warren Sapp, Randy Moss type or a Maurice Clarrett but the Bills need to prioritize football ability over anything else. Keep in mind I believe most fans have forgiven John Gruden for his DUI years ago, people make mistakes.

No.  Let someone else have em.  The past can be a predictor of the future.  I'd take him off the board unless he's around in later rounds and even that would involve risk.

Character is important, well to me it is anyway.
