BIO: Starter the past three seasons posting 25/6.5/2 as a senior after 60/15/6.5 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, overachieving defensive end with marginal size/speed numbers. Fast off the edge, can flatten and is effective in pursuit. Nicely redirects to the action, is resilient and works hard to make plays.
NEGATIVES: Easily knocked from his angle of attack or taken out by chips from opposing fullbacks. Lacks top first-step quickness.
ANALYSIS: An undersized pass rusher who gets the most from his abilities, Carroll has struggled to keep on weight in the past and is not fast enough to be considered for linebacker. Potential situational pass rusher at the next level.
