Carter had a nice career at Nebraska, where he played in 42 career games, he had 59 receptions, for 744 receiving yards, and 4 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, he is very experienced, and is a tough nosed player. He is also a good run blocker, he is also a good pass blocker, and he opens holes up for his backs. He also is a good pass catcher when called upon, and he also has good hands. On the other hand, he is not primarily a pass catching tight end, despite good numbers, and he does not have the best speed, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I view Carter as a late round pick, to a priority free agent after the draft, where he will compete for a spot as a 3rd tght end spot on a teams 53-man roster.
