PASS GAME ANALYSIS
As a pass rusher, Carter combines speed with power at an elite level. His first step quickness and lateral athleticism allow him to vary his approach in tight areas. Carter combines a powerful lower half and active hands to displace or move a blocker into the QB's lap. Carter can vary his hand usage with rips, swims, or a push-pull combo move.
RUN GAME ANALYSIS
As a run stopper, Carter's lateral quickness and play recognition showed on his tape. You can see him get parallel at the line of scrimmage in tight quarters, moving with urgency toward the ball carrier, exhibiting impressive positional range. Carter can also anchor down using his thick frame to absorb blockers, holding his ground to close a run lane.
Carter is a disruptive physical force. Carter combines a quick first step and feet like a running back to shoot into gaps. At 6-3, 310lbs, Carter is a densely proportioned twitchy player with quick hips and elite lateral ability. Carter wins with strength generated from his dense lower half; combine that with his elite positional athleticism and quick hands, Carter is a problematic defender to block. Carter will need to improve his ability to handle and move off of double teams at the next level.
