OVERALL

Carter is a versatile player who has had snaps at the safety, nickel and outside corner positions. He is an athletic undersized safety with quick feet. He moves like a corner in coverage at times, with a smooth backpedal and quick breaks. He has shown to have very good speed as well. Though he is undersized and has trouble overcoming shortcomings at times. With a lack of playmaking ability, Carter will add depth to a room.
