ATHENS — Jalen Carter was back on the field at Georgia’s pro day on Wednesday. With all 32 teams present, Carter left NFL teams asking even more questions regarding his NFL draft future.
Prior to the NFL combine, Carter was seen as a candidate to possibly be the top player, or top non-quarterback, selected in the 2023 NFL Draft. But then he was arrested for reckless driving and racing charges while the combine was taking place. The charges stem from the night of Jan. 15, the same night Chandler LeCroy and Devin Willock tragically died in a car accident. Carter was allegedly present at the scene of the crash.
Carter did not work out at the combine but did meet with teams, returning after he posted bail on the evening of March 1.

He was reportedly dealing with cramping issues per ESPN’s Mark Schlabach.
