NFL Draft: Bears skip over one player with a DUI arrest, but still take two others

Despite a lot of speculation that the Chicago Bears would be selecting linebacker Alec Ogletree in last week’s NFL Draft, they instead went with offensive lineman Kyle Long.

What do they both have in common?  Besides being first round draft picks?

They have been arrested for DUI.

As if to prove that having been arrested for a DUI is no big thing, the Bears used their sixth round selection on defensive end/linebacker Cornelius Washington, who was arrested for DUI in 2011.

Lets hope that these young men have learned their lessons and will not run afoul of the law again.

But if they do, lets hope they know who to call.
