Top NFL Draft Prospect Won’t Work Out At Combine

Written by Tony Ghaul

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday that Jalen Carter is not expected to participate in on-field drills at this week’s NFL combine.

Carter will wait until Georgia’s March 15 pro day to workout for teams. He will still be in Indianapolis for medical checks and team interviews.

The Georgia Bulldogs star battled injuries this season that limited him for a bit and even forced him to miss two games. 

Carter ended the season with 32 tackles, 7 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, 3 pass break-ups, and 2 forced fumbles.

According to ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr., Carter is the No. 1 overall prospect in this year’s draft. The 6-foot-3, 310-pound 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.
