Pick (Overall): 30 (127)
Carmichael has plenty of speed, which is the most important commodity in the NFL. He has fluid hips and very good agility to mirror wide receivers in man coverage and shows the ability to recognize tendencies and jump routes in zone coverage. He is a bit undersized and can struggle in run support, but he is a tough competitor who has a relentless motor. Although he has good hands and leaping skills, he tends to keep his back to the quarterback, limiting his ability to track the ball in the air. Carmichael looks to be a third- or fourth-round prospect.
