Jalen Carter shows heavier and fights during the Georgia Pro Day
Jalen Carter’s final weeks only got worse on Wednesday as Georgia Football held its Pro Day. carter, two-time national champion Defensive tackle with the Bulldogs, was undoubtedly considered one of the best players available in the 2023 NFL Draft, and many believed that if the Chicago Bears didn’t trade back from the No. 1 pick overall, he would go to the Windy City.
Six weeks into opening night of the draft, with dozens of teams ready to see the giant project up close, Carter was unable to finish his training and positional drills due to heavy breathing and convulsions, according to ESPN’s Mark Schlabach. Carter also reportedly didn’t compete in the 40-yard dash and weighed 323 pounds. to nine from what was indicated on the dial In the Combine NFL. It’s the latest major event seemingly weighing on Carter’s draft shares, and an impossible thought after a poor performance at his Pro Day a month ago Carter drops out of the top 10 in the NFL draft is now very plausible.
During the NFL Combine earlier this month, it was revealed that Carter had done it charged with reckless driving and racing, resulting in the deaths of Bulldog teammate Devin Willock and associate Chandler LeCroy in January. Carter responded to the allegations with a statement on social media He said he believed he would be completely erased. (Carter pleaded no contest for reckless driving and racing on Thursday, his attorney told ESPN.)
Carter was never scheduled to attend training sessions in Indianapolis, but did have interviews with several teams. Not appearing with the NFL Combine, Carter’s Pro Day had greater prominence to show how he was able to display the raw skills necessary to be a successful professional defensive lineman. It’s obviously an opportunity Carter missed.

Pro Day results don’t always align with NFL success
Investing a ton of stock in Pro Days could be a trap that doesn’t exactly align with NFL success. It’s always better to put your best foot into the tentpole days of the league’s selection process, but JaMarcus Russell had one of the most acclaimed Pro Days of all time and is known as one of the biggest busts in league history. Lamar Jackson’s Pro Day in Louisville refueled its draft stash a year after winning the Heisman Trophy. Jackson nearly got knocked out of the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but the No. 32 pick overall has worked for the Ravens so far. Whether Jackson will be there Baltimore long term is a different story.
According to the latest mock draft by Pro Football Focus, Carter falls to No. 9, oddly enough after Chicago. The Bears were able to get the man they wanted first a total of eight picks later before trading with the #1 pick Carolina last week. Now that’s what I call value! Carter was meant to draw comparisons to former teammate Jordan Davis, who did insanely well in college, but he was viewed much more as an NFL project. He was ranked 13th overall last year the Eagles, and that’s pretty much where Carter should go. If the former Bulldog hadn’t had a terrible pro day, he’d be a suspension again for a top 10 move. It’s much darker now.
