Keep in mind there's a few major differences in this situation: he's not a consensus #1 pick, he was involved in a tragic, off-field situation where he made some very bad decisions (lied to police, was racing/speeding after being pulled over for the same a few months prior), didn't test at the combine, interviewed poorly with some teams, and then had an awful pro day where he showed up out of shape, unprepared, and unable to finish the drills.I think he just knows he's going top 10.
It's basketball, but Cade Cunningham last year did the same, and said he would only visit with the team that had the #1 overall pick.
If none of the above happened, no one would blink an eye at this strategy. But since it did, it makes the strategy questionable, at best, and detrimental, at worst.
Tunsil slid to 13 for taking a bong hit, so Carter sliding outside of the top 10 for much more baggage isn't some remote possibility.
