Jalen Carter

22-Year-Old Defensive TackleDT
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Carter slipped on draft day in part due to a Jan. 15 incident that resulted in charges of reckless driving, but his ability between the lines isn't in doubt. The Eagles traded up to select him at the No. 9 spot, creating a potential defensive tackle tandem of the future with former Georgia teammate Jordan Davis. Assuming Carter's off-field issues don't prevent him from making the most of his talent, he should spend plenty of time in NFL backfields just as he did in college, though Davis and Fletcher Cox make for stiff competition for snaps.

Draft day slide ends in Philly
DTPhiladelphia Eagles
April 27, 2023
The Eagles selected Carter in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, ninth overall.
With Carter falling, Philadelphia opted to be proactive and move into the No.9 spot, where Chicago was a threat to grab the defensive tackle. On talent alone, Carter is arguably a top-three player in this class. A 314-pound wrecking ball in the middle of the defensive line that can stop the run and get into the backfield, Carter was a key piece of Georgia's back-to-back national title run. He had a tumultuous pre-draft process, however, including having to leave the combine to report to Athens-Clarke County after being charged with reckless driving. With combine testing out the window, Carter had a lot to prove at the pro day and was not as impressive as many expected. Carter still didn't fall too far, though, and he is now reunited with former Georgia teammate Jordan Davis in the middle of the Philadelphia trenches.
