How latest draft shakeup could give Houston Texans extra value
With the NFL Combine in full swing, news broke on Wednesday that Georgia defensive lineman Jalen Carter was being charged for reckless driving and racing, and had to leave the Combine to turn himself into police.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Georgia DT and potential No. 1 pick Jalen Carter for Reckless Driving and Racing. Stems from the January 15th crash that took the life of a teammate and staffer.

Considering the Texans issues with PR recently and Carter's legal troubles, we discuss if the Georgia standout is out of consideration for the Texans at No. 2 overall.
We also discuss reports about character concerns that occurred before the racing charges.
Plus, if Carter is off the Texans board at No. 2 overall, would the team draft him at No. 12? Especially if DeMeco Ryans pushes for the selection and he's somehow still on the board?
Finally, we examine how this situation would play out if Carter was a top QB prospect and not a defensive lineman.
