The University of Georgia star pass rusher Jalen Carter is a perfect example of what not to do as an NFL Draft Prospect. Carter has been in a downward spiral over the past month and change and he is losing money every day.
Carter was projected as a top 5 pick before it was determined he was in fact involved in his teammates crash that left his teammate and a Georgia staff worker dead. Carter then had to leave the NFL Scouting Combine to return to Georgia because they had an arrest warrant for his involvement.
Then yesterday, Carter showed up to the Georgia pro day and he looked like hell. He was nine pounds overweight and could not make it through his Pro Day. He actually went down at one point in the workout with cramps.
The 6-foot-3 Carter weighed 323 pounds on Wednesday. He was listed by Georgia at 300 pounds during the 2022 season and checked in at 314 pounds for the NFL Scouting Combine in late February.
Carter is by far one of the most talented players in the NFL Draft, but now he is getting a year probation that NFL teams will have to monitor over the next 12 months.
He will not have to serve jail time but he will be fined 1000 dollars and have to complete a driving course as well as perform 80 hours of community service.
Carter was charged with reckless driving and racing, stemming from the fatal crash.
