Overview

Carter is a three-year starter at guard for the Red Raiders and has played a lot of football over the years. He will show some nastiness in his blocks but sometimes lets it get personal and has been known to get flagged for penalties at inopportune times. He is a mauler and a brawler as a blocker that can smother opponents once he gets his hands on them but will struggle when reacting to movement or when in space. Carter is probably too limited, athletically, to be a top line starter in the NFL but could find a niche as a backup that could start in a pinch.

Analysis

Strengths

Carter is blessed with good height, outstanding bulk and impressive overall size for the guard position at the next level. Displays great power out of his stance at the point of attack to jolt defenders. Exhibits some really heavy hands in pass protection.

Weaknesses

Does not possess the speed scouts like to see from offensive lineman at the next level. Lacks enough agility to deal with counter moves from pass rushers or quick one-gap penetrators in the running game. Has stiff hips. Is not comfortable blocking out in space.
