Explanation of Player Grading System

 

The Breakdown

Carter is a linebacker that does everything very well, but nothing great. If he plays to his full potential, he could be the first linebacker taken in the 2011 NFL Draft. Carter needs to find a way to play with more aggression and violence as he has the physical makeup to back it up. A sure open field tackler that rarely misses his assignment, Carter is a safe pick for a team that is looking for a 4-3 outside backer.
