It is always proud when one teammate praises others. The same thing is coming from the NFL in 2023 when Eagles cornerback Darius Slay praises defender Jalen Carter for his brilliant defensive skills, and the cornerback feels the defender has the potential to become a great asset and the best in the league.

If you are someone who is following the NFL 2023, then you must know that the defensive tackle is doing such a great job on the field for the Philadelphia Eagles in the league. Darius feels he has a lot of potential. On that note, the cornerback sugar coated his teammate.

On a show named Big Play Slay, he said

I’m not comparing him to who I want to compare him to, but I have been around a lot of great defenders. I have been around [Ndamukong] Suh, Haloti Ngata, and Javon Hargrave. I’ve been around a great group of guys who play defensive tackle, man, and I’m trying to tell you, Jalen Carter, that this young player is just very, very dominant. He’s very strong physically, quicker than what we think, and stronger than how he looks.”

Darius Slay also feels Jalen looks like a baby rhino

He said, “He looks like a baby rhino. Have you ever seen a baby rhino and you just think he is just crazy? I’m talking about him pushing folks back. You can ask Lane Johnson, who said it himself—one of the best tackles in the game—that this guy is ready to play now and is ready to take control of a game now. He’s a game-changer.”

He praised the young defender over many domains of his game, whether it is physical fitness, speed, skill, mental toughness, or so many other things about the young lad. He also mentioned how other defenders feel about the young gun.

Jalen Carter is just 21 years old, but at such a young age, he has shown promising potential as he performed brilliantly on the opportunities and still has plenty of time to master more skills as a defender. Carter was selected by the Eagles with the ninth overall pick in the 2023 NFL draft window.

Before being selected by the Eagles, he played for his college team and high school. At the college level, Carter emerged as a unanimous All-American in 2022 and a CFP national champion two times.
