Scouting Report: Strengths
  • The talent is there as a sideline-to-sideline playmaker.
  • He’s a fluid, fast and aggressive tackling machine, an elite athlete considering his size (he has room to add more weight to his frame).
  • Carter has quickness in his hands and uses his length effectively.
  • He can be used as a rangy run defender inside, instinctive when it comes to locating the ball with the quickness to get to it before blockers can react at the second level.
  • He’s an explosive mover, and Carter shows body control and flexibility as a pass rusher. He can dip and bend around the corner, and he maintains speed while he does.
  • He’s explosive coming out of his stance, and he shows the ability to ward off blockers with quick, violent hands.
  • Carter has good movement skills with decent range. And he proved capable of holding up in zone coverage and can be used as an effective A-gap blitzer.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Hips are a bit high, arms are long, and waist is narrow, which limits his ability to anchor and turn. Not much of a pass rusher if there is not an open lane.
  • Height leaves him susceptible to cut blocks Carter must learn to defeat with his hands.
  • He’s perfectly capable of converting speed into power when he gets to the ball, but too often he slips off tackles or turns into a grab-and-drag tackler rather than a hitter, failing to keep his legs driving through the hit.
