Georgia defensive tackle Jalen Carter is refusing to visit teams not picking in the top 10 of the NFL draft, as per his agent Drew Rosenhaus who told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
It’s possible that his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, knows with certainty that Carter won’t make it past the Eagles at No. 10.
Carter was invited to the NFL draft, which will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, this year and plans to attend.
The Georgia Bulldogs star’s draft status is clouded after he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and racing last month in connection with a fatal crash in January.
Carter was sentenced to 12 months of probation, a $1,000 fine and 80 hours of community service and will attend a state-approved defensive driving course.
At Georgia’s pro day last month, Carter weighed 323 pounds. That is 9 pounds heavier than he was at the scouting combine in Indianapolis.
He opted to do only position drills, which he didn’t finish, and didn’t participate in other aspects of the workout.
The 6-foot-3 Carter was a unanimous All-American in 2022. He earned All-SEC first-team honors and was named a finalist for the Rotary Lombardi Award as the nation’s top lineman.
