Draft Analysis:

Overview

An all-state pick from Memphis who had 26 sacks over his last two high school seasons, Carr signed with in-state powerhouse Tennessee. He played in the first three games of the year, but then did not see the field again. Coaches thought he needed more of a "sense of urgency" in his play, so they planned to use his athleticism on the offensive line instead. He balked at that plan and left to play at Northeast Mississippi Community College for the 2014 season. Carr decided to play at West Georgia to finish his career, starting 15 games in 2015 (37 tackles, 5.5 for loss, sack) and nine in 2016 (23 tackles, 4.5 for loss, two sacks).

Analysis

Strengths

Has desired NFL size with arms that reach beyond 34 inches. Lower body has even more room for weight and muscle and he might be able to add substantially more weight to his already large frame. Bends knees and plays under opponents pads as long as he can at point of attack. Has good anchor and can fight back against double teams.

Weaknesses

Slow twitch with very little explosive qualities. Gets hung up on blocks longer than an Internet Explorer browser trying to close. Allows guards to grab and hold him rather than ripping their hands off his body. Marginal pursuit speed and play-making radius. Below-average agility and doesn't threaten the gaps with his get-off. Unable to generate pass rush against lower level of competition.

Draft Projection

Bottom Line

Will likely get invited to a camp on his size and length alone. Carr is a long way from being an NFL prospect, but teams could see him as a developmental project that can pack on the pounds and potentially plug-in as a space-eating defensive tackle down the road.
