NFL reporter makes awkward mistake live on TV during draft

Brundle mistakes basketball star for NFL player in Miami GP gaffe

An NFL reporter made an awkward X-rated mistake live on television during the NFL Draft on Thursday night as she described Philadelphia Eagles newboy Jalen Carter. The reporter ran the rule over the player and said “big d***” before attempting to cover herself by quickly adding “big guy.”

“What we’re hearing is Jalen Carter, the d tackle from Georgia – just won a national championship with the Bulldogs,” she said on NFL Now. “Big d***, big guy, six [foot] three.”

The Eagles traded up a spot with Chicago Bears to get their hands on Carter with the ninth pick of the evening. The 22-year-old was a key part of the Georgia team that won back-to-back national championships in 2022 and 2023 and earned first-team All-American honours last year.

“My general expectations were whoever drafts me are going to get the best player in the draft,” Carter said after linking up with the Eagles. “I had high hopes for Philly because I had a good visit with them. I felt like it was a good team to go to and play for.”

Carter was expected to be one of the top picks in this year’s NFL Draft following his impressive showings for Georgia. But last month he pleaded no contest to misdemeanour charges of reckless driving and racing following a fatal crash in January. Carter was sentenced to 12 months of probation and ordered to pay an £802 fine ($1000). He will also serve 80 hours of community service and will undertake a state-approved defensive driving course.

“They didn’t ask much about the accident,” Carter added as he spoke about his pre-Draft visits to teams. “It was getting to know me, my love for the game of football and my personality.”

Meanwhile, Eagles general manager Howie Roseman has labelled Carter “a winner” and insists he wants to get to know the youngster. “We understand that all these players, they need to be developed,” Roseman said. “They’re coming into the league at a very young age – they’re not finished products.

“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.”
