Atlanta, GA: Georgia Bulldogs’ defensive tackle Jalen Carter was involved in a fatal car crash on Friday evening, according to police reports. Carter was subsequently booked and released on charges of fleeing the scene of the accident, which claimed the life of another driver. Carter, a highly touted prospect for the NFL Draft, has also been charged with racing in the crash.
Former NFL general manager and current CBS Sports analyst, Mike Tannenbaum, weighed in on Carter’s situation. “This is obviously a very serious matter and it will have an impact on Carter’s draft stock,” Tannenbaum said. “Teams will have to weigh the potential legal implications and character concerns associated with this incident.”
Meanwhile, the Las Vegas Raiders, who hold the seventh overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, could have a dream scenario play out. However, according to the Raiders Beat, they could be forced to pass on the player they want if they select at number seven.
For fans of the New England Patriots, the upcoming NFL Combine workouts offer an opportunity to scout potential prospects. WEEI reports that there will be several players to watch, including five certain standouts.
