ATHENS - Former Georgia Bulldogs DL Jalen Carter won’t work out during the NFL Combine later this week. 

That’s according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who reports that instead Carter will workout in Athens on Wednesday, March 15th. 

“Georgia DL Jalen Carter, considered one of the top players in this year’s draft, will not participate in the workout portion of this week’s combine but will do the interviews with teams and the physical. His agents, Drew Rosenhaus and Ryan Matha, told teams that Carter will work out at his Georgia Pro Day March 15.”

It isn’t a massive surprise that Carter would consider skipping workouts in Indianapolis. Although he was a ket part of Georgia’s 33-18 win over No. 1 Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in Lucas Oil Field, Carter has used the practice facility at UGA for years.

Carter battled injuries during much of the 2022 season. He was knocked out nearly all of October after an injury at Missouri. Still, he’s stayed near or at the top of a slew of NFL Draft boards during the season. Carter was the lynchpin in the Bulldogs’ undefeated defense in 2022.

ESPN’s Mel Kiper, Jr. placed him at the top of his mock draft in late January. 

“Chicago's roster needs help from top to bottom, but its defense was particularly dreadful in 2022, ranking last in the league in sacks (20) and points allowed per game (27.2). It has to be D all the way for wherever the Bears make their selection. Carter, an explosive interior pass-rusher and run-stuffer, gets the nod over Alabama edge rusher Will Anderson Jr. on my Big Board. He's the best player in this draft, a Day 1 starter in the middle of this defense.”
