Carter is an impressive “box” linebacker who does a great job of reading and reacting to plays. He diagnoses plays very well and then trusts his abilities before committing to the play. This allows him to not overrun plays as well as take away angles for runners. His 143 tackles and 16 TFLs are a result of those skills.

Carter also shows in his highlights that he can blitz and rush off the edge. His pass coverage in zone is also impressive as he breaks up a few passes and has a nice interception where he reads the quarterback’s eyes. I think the only question mark is his foot speed and whether he can bulk up and not lose speed.
