Jalen Carter showed up apparently out of shape for his Pro Day and didn’t work out. This guy is burning up millions. Most are thinking he’ll drop to mid-first round where someone will gamble.

If that’s true he obviously isn’t taking this seriously AT ALL. Huge red flag. SMH

Kids sure can be dumb.

He was 9lbs overweight and visibly out of shape and could finish the positional drills. ESPN reported it yesterday.

This kid is going to mess around and be the 15th pick right when we have the #3 pick.

Fitting.

The kid clearly isn’t taking this serious he’s not even trying to stay in shape when you can’t finish, positional drills, that’s pretty pathetic… Add onto that his obvious lack of decision making capability. I might actually drop him even out of the first round honestly, if I was a GM.

9lbs over weight too… how much partying and drinking/eating do you have to do at that age to gain almost 10lbs in just a couple weeks? When I was that age I could literally eat like a horse and not gain an ounce.

Wish I still had that problem…
Now I can go on a week long cruise and gain 10 pounds while still going to the gym every AM. Lol

Is it a rumor if it's caught on tape?

Yeah not good from Jalen. Really not good for us because we needed him there as trade up bait for someone or trade back bait for us.

Nothing has folded how we would like if looking for a trade partner

Like I said yesterday, those strip clubs must have good buffets.

This is going to work out just fine for him. He is probably going to go the Eagles at #10.
My guess: He's going to be the Warren Sapp of this draft. I'm not surprised that he isn't thinking about football right now.

Horrible decisions aside (He plead no contest today), his talent and ability is undeniable.

Guys with lesser talent, but great work ethic and decision making ability usually fair better and last in the league longer than guys with great talent alone.

They wasted no time in sentencing him to pretty much nothing, too. I guess the defensive driving course will help him get away from the strip clubs faster, in the futue.

This makes yesterday even more stupid.

He would have known this was coming so why not turn up at your pro day in shape and ready to kick ass? Had he killed the workout yesterday and then this coming out today the whole thing would have been forgotten come the draft.

He'd be the **** hot DT that killed his pro day and only got some minor charges.

The bad pro day will hurt him more than this.

I think his ceiling is Albert Haynseworth and his floor is Robert Nkimdiche.
