The University of Georgia held its NFL Pro Day on Wednesday, and many scouts were eager to see how defensive tackle Jalen Carter performed.
However, reports from Athens show that Carter is not having his best performance.
An ESPN report said Carter’s Pro Day couldn’t have gone worse, as he weighed nine pounds heavier at 323 compared to his 314-pound weigh-in at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

In addition, Carter opted to only do positional workouts for the coaches, scouts, and media present instead of doing the full workout, which would include the 40-yard dash, cone drills, and more.
But Carter couldn’t finish the full exercise of positional exercises because he claimed he was cramping and ESPN noted that he was breathing rather heavily.
JALEN CARTER OF GEORGIA, RECENTLY CHARGED IN A DEADLY ACCIDENT, WAS ARRESTED FOR ‘RELAXY’ IN SEPTEMBER
This marks the first time during the NFL Draft process that Carter coached after only going through interviews and measurables at the combine. Some of it has to do with his off-field problem that he recently found himself on.
He was arrested for his alleged role in a car crash on January 15 that killed teammate Devin Willock, an offensive lineman, and Georgia staff member Chandler LeCroy.
LeCroy was allegedly racing his SUV against Carter’s car after a night out shortly after the team’s National Championship Game win over TCU when he lost control of the vehicle and struck two power poles and several trees. Police say the car was going 104 mph and she was intoxicated with a blood alcohol level of .197, which is more than twice the legal limit.

Carter turned himself in on March 1, having to leave the combine on lesser reckless driving and racing charges. He ended up posting bail and returned to Indianapolis for the remainder of the combine.
Once considered the potential No. 1 overall pick, Carter’s draft stock dropped because of that incident, and now his Pro Day performance won’t help either.

Next in the draft process will be official visits from Carter, who should expect some calls from teams across the league. This is where he can answer any questions or concerns teams may have to see if he’ll fit into their organization for years to come.
