Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his freshman season. Led the team in receiving as a senior posting 85/889/4 after 69/768/5 as a junior. Played just two games as a sophomore in 2007 before being sidelined with injury. Freshman totals included 54/703/5.
Positives: Productive and reliable small school receiver with a good head for the position. Displays a degree of quickness in his game, runs solid routes and stays low exiting breaks, immediately positioning himself to make the reception. Adjusts to the errant throw, plays with good body control and looks the pass into his hands. Consistently finds the open spot in the defense. Makes good use of the sidelines, catches the ball with solid fundamentals, and always works to make himself an available target. Knows where he is on the field.
Negatives: Not a big strong sturdy wide out. Lacks the second gear and ability to run to the deep throw.
Analysis: Carter is a natural receiver who showed the ability to take over games on a small school level. He lacks great up size yet is a polished prospect who could easily make a roster as a fifth receiver.
