Overview

Carter's has some abilities that can't be coached but still has flaws in his game that need work before he can be considered a complete, everydown NFL running back. Has tremendous lateral quickness and really explodes out of his cuts but does not have the deep speed to go all the way after breaking through the box. Is very shifty in tight spaces but would benefit from relying on his powerful, low-to-the-ground build more often and do a more consistent job of getting his shoulders squared and running downhill. Pass catching needs a lot of work but he's solid in pass protection. Carter looks like a mid-round prospect.

Analysis

Strengths

Carter has a great, low center of gravity. Short but very thick. Possesses good burst, outstanding agility, and picks up speed out of his cuts. Productive runner in-between the tackles. Can make defenders miss in the hole or run through tackles. Very impressive in pass protection. Stout and holds his ground.

Weaknesses

He is quicker-than fast and does not possess homerun-type speed to hit the seam or burn down the sideline. Vision still needs development. Does not always make the proper read and will dance near the line at times. Flashes impressive running power, but needs to use it more often.
