I think the Jalen Carter ‘character issues’ have been debunked

Every year, the “analysts” at the big networks will leak some damaging information about high-profile players in the upcoming NFL Draft. This year, the ESPN clown known as Todd McShay randomly decided to place “character issues” on potential No. 1 overall pick Jalen Carter from Georgia. You can read about what he said here.

Now, I don’t think many people bought into this bogus rumor he tried to spread. It did not affect his draft stock whatsoever, as most people still have him as the best player in the draft, and will likely go first overall to Chicago, pending a trade.

Well, yesterday it seems that these rumors have been debunked. Bleacher Nation, a Chicago-based publication, posted an article, linked here, going into detail about what kind of a person Carter truly is. The quotes were taken from an article from The Athletic on Carter.

Scott pointed out who he thought might be the ideal person to comment on Carter’s character. Weston Wallace is a player perhaps only the most diehard of Bulldogs fans know. A sophomore, the 6-foot-4, 320-pounder used to go up against Carter every day at practice when he was a scout team offensive lineman his first two seasons at Georgia (the walk-on switched to the defensive line this year),” Bruce Feldman wrote in his piece.

Before this season Carter found out that Wallace, as a walk-on, couldn’t eat all the meals the scholarship defensive linemen were getting. Walk-ons weren’t able to eat lunch, but this year the players were given the choice to buy it,” Feldman continued.

“Jalen heard about that. I’m the only walk-on in the defensive line room and he goes, ‘I’m not gonna let that happen.’ So he used his scholarship money to pay for me to get lunch every single day,” Wallace said, via The Athletic.

Scott wrote a good article about how the claims were ridiculous at the time, and now that these rumors have been proven false, what does that make McShay? He tried to slander Jalen Carter with no basis or merit and now he has been proven wrong.

What happens to McShay? Nothing. He will keep on going about his days with no repercussions. No one buys into anything he had to say before this, but now I think people will really start to question him and the things he says. Shame on you, Todd McShay.
