Apparently the New Orleans Saints aren't soley interested in linebacker Jarvis Jones from the University of Georgia when it comes to beefing up their pass rush from the upcoming NFL Draft.

According to WalterFootball.com, the Saints have held a private workout with linebacker Alec Ogletree as well. The Saints obviously want to get a closer look at Ogletree after seeing him perform at UGA's Pro Day last Thursday.

Ogletree is projected to be an inside linebacker in the Saints 3-4 scheme, unlike Jones who would be an outside linebacker. Jones also had a private workout as well, with defensive coordinator Rob Ryan putting him through his paces.

During his career at Georgia, Ogletree had 197 total tackles, 20 tackles for a loss, six sacks, one interception, and three forced fumbles. Despite his stellar college career, the linebacker has had off the field issues.

In September of 2010 he was arrested for misdemeanor theft related to a stolen scooter helmet that allegedly occurred in June of that year. He was suspended for the first game of that season.

Just a few days before the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Arizona. After the arrest Ogletree was able to attend and go through the workouts.
