Former Georgia outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter had a remarkable overall performance at the NFL combine in Indianapolis over the weekend, and one of the events yielded an all-time number.

According to Alex Makrides of the AJC, Carter’s 10 foot, 10-inch broad jump was the best ever for a player at his position of edge rusher.

In case you missed it or want to watch it again, here’s Carter’s jump, which was also the fourth-best overall among this year’s combine.

Along with his record setting jump, Carter also made waves throughout the other drills, turning heads with his size, measurables, and speed.

At nearly 6 feet 5 inches and 250 pounds, Carter zoomed through his 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds officially, a faster time than both former Georgia running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.

As mentioned in the video of his 40, Carter ran a full tenth of a second faster than former Bulldogs teammate Leonard Floyd, who was drafted in the first round by the Chicago Bears in the 2016 draft.

After a very productive season and great display at the combine, Carter’s stock likely rose significantly over the weekend, as NFL teams will covet his size, athleticism, and versatility.
