Carrethers earned a starting job midway through his redshirt sophomore season and has since become a force in the middle against the run. He finished first in his conference among interior defenders with 63 stops, earning all-Sun Belt Conference honors as a junior. He has good size and a strong lower half, enabling him to hold his ground against double-team blocks. While he carries his 328 pounds well, Carrethers is a limited athlete who lacks explosiveness and change-of-direction skills. He has a hard time shedding blockers and needs to do a better job of keeping his arms extended to prevent blockers from tying him up. -Jeremy Hyde, 06/07
