Howie Roseman: We have good people in this building, felt Jalen Carter was a good fit for us

“We understand that all these players, they need to be developed, they’re coming into the league at a very young age, they’re not finished products,” Roseman said. “You just want to really get to know the person and what’s in their heart. When we got to know Jalen, we just felt like here’s a kid that does love football, obviously he’s a winner — he won in high school, he won in college — and we felt like we have really good people in this building: We have a really good support staff, we have really good players who are good people, we have really good coaches, and we felt like it was a good fit for us.”

Among the players the Eagles have on hand are several of Carter’s defensive teammates from Georgia — 2022 rookies Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean as well as Thursday’s 30th overall pick Nolan Smith — and the hope is that the whole mix helps set the stage for on-field success without off-field issues.
