Player Overview

Carson was selected All-Big Ten honorable mention as a senior by the conference's coaches and the media following a senior season in which he led the Nittany Lions with 90 tackles to go along with a sack, three passes broken up and three passes defended.

The three-year starter was part of a stout run defense and a key to the second level while working as an every-down player.

Carson arrived at Penn State as an all-state player out of Manahawkin, N.J. He originally moved from linebacker to fullback as a freshman, but returned to linebacker during the season and eanred a starting job by the time he was a sophomore.

After finishing fourth on the team with 74 tackles in 2011, Carson started all 12 games as a junior and was third on the team with 85 tackles.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Three-down player who displays strong instincts for the position. Strong run defender who has improved his coverage skills. Experienced with 24 starts. Good fundamental tackler. Team captain. Competitor.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks elite sideline-to-sideline speed. Not a powerful hitter and while he has improved his coverage skills, Carson will struggle to keep pace with the bigger, faster tight ends in the NFL.
