Georgia defensive tackle Jalen Carter dominated throughout the 2022 season despite battling injuries. Carter finished the season with strong play and another national title, and with the celebration fully on for the Bulldogs, Carter made it official that he is moving on.

Carter shared a message on social media Monday night after Georgia’s 65-7 victory over TCU officially declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft. Carter is expected to be a top-five pick in next April’s draft after a dominant junior season as a Bulldog.

“Dawg Nation, These last 3 years have been exciting. I am most thankful to God for the talent and ability he has given me, without him I am nothing. I can’t thank Coach Smart and his staff enough for their commitment to helping me develop into the best version of myself on and off the field,” Carter wrote in part. “I would like to announce that I am declaring for the NFL Draft. While I am excited for the next chapter, I WILL ALWAYS BE A DAWG!”
