Bruce Carter   #54 LB

Height: 6-2   Weight: 240   Age: 30

Born: 2/19/1988 Havelock , NC

College: North Carolina

Experience: 8th season

High School: Havelock HS [NC]









Draft 2011

Pick No.40

Selected By: Dallas Cowboys

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 8 (40)

Pick Analysis: Carter is an excellent athlete, but he tore his ACL in November and has a long road to recovery. He is an explosive athlete that takes proper angles in run support and has excellent speed to make plays from sideline-to-sideline. He is a very fluid, transitions with ease and is very effective dropping into coverage. He struggles to disengage from bigger blockers in and must add more bulk to become stouter against the run. If Carter recovers fully from his injury, he has the athleticism to develop into a very productive weak side linebacker and may still be an early Day 2 pick.
