NFL super agent Drew Rosenhaus tries to save himself and Jalen Carter to lose a lot of money. Once considered the best prospect available in the 2023 NFL Draft, he was red flag with maturity and work ethic issues in recent months. Carter is currently working for teams privately, and the next step is chicago bears with the No. 9 overall pick. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Rosenhaus said Carter will not work for any team outside of the top 10.
Carter has everything an NFL defensive coordinator would want in an inside lineman. He’s huge at 6-foot-3, 300+ pounds with long arms, massive hands, and a big explosion. During his junior season at Georgia, he nearly matched his previous season’s production while playing one fewer game due to injury. This five-star recruit has lived up to all expectations in college.
What’s going on in Georgia?
However, since Georgia won its second straight national championship, there hasn’t been much positive news regarding Carter. The night after the parade, he was involved in a car accident that claimed the lives of a teammate and a member of team staff. A warrant for his arrest was issued during the reconnaissance campaign. Carter had to leave Indianapolis to surrender and return later.
In March, he did not contest misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and racing. While the case may be closed in the eyes of the law, some recently released police body camera footage will reopen it in the court of public opinion. In the original Atlanta Journal-Constitution report, it was alleged that Carter left the scene of the accident and did not call 911. His attorney denied leaving without permission.and claimed Carter ran to the scene of the accident while a friend called the police. Jit video shows Carter’s conversation with the police. He tells them he doesn’t know who called 911and he’s not wearing shoes.
After the combine, Carter did something that, while not illegal, is considered a serious sin by NFL scouts. He showed up out of shape at his pro day. These days are designed by universities to show players at their best. It’s almost like a performance which is put on NFL scouts. Carter showed nine pounds heavier than he was during the combine and was unable to complete the exercises. He also has ghost his combine interview.
Which teams are ready to take a chance on Carter?
I’m willing to give him a pass to Pro Day. News of his plea deal became public the following day. Dealing with the stress of legal issues and also the world knowing that an activity he was involved in resulted in the deaths of two people he knows, he may have spent a few days stressed out eating instead of drinking. train.
Still, Rosenhaus and Carter have their work cut out for them trying to assure teams with leading picks in the draft that the youngster can be trusted. Part of what makes these projects so difficult is that they involve giving young people a lot of money and responsibility. Knowing that young people make mistakes. The question must always be asked: which of these players should not be trusted, and who is simply a young moron?
Carter better learn quickly that while he’s going to make a lot more mistakes in his youth, there are some that need to be avoided. He’s also going to be held to a different standard than most people in seemingly benign situations. If he gets a speeding ticket, even after his 12 months probation is over, it will be viral news.
He has a lot to prove if he wants to avoid sitting in that green room all night on April 27. Rosenhaus spreads the message, but it’s Carter who will have to make sense of it.
