Biography: Started two games as a senior before being sidelined with a broken leg. Finished the year with 10 tackles. Started four games as a junior and recorded 37 tackles besides breaking up eight passes.
Positives: Incredibly athletic defensive back still developing on the football field. Effectively diagnoses the action, fluid flipping his hips off the line, and loses nothing transitioning with opponents. Fast enough to stay anywhere on the field with receivers and aggressive throughout the action. Quickly comes up the field to defend running plays or screens.
Negatives: Possesses just average ball skills. A bit slow out of his break to defend the throw.
Analysis: Carroll is a size/speed prospect who's shown flashes of ability throughout his college career yet never fully put together a complete game. He is a solid developmental prospect who could end up as a team?s dime back.
