Strengths Weaknesses

He uses his eyes well to read, react and attack, covering the deep half of the field and lining up near the line of scrimmage. Carter needs to improve his tackling technique to better break down and finish once he makes contact, but he has improved in this area. Overall, he is still a work-in-progress, but he shows the confidence, athleticism and natural ball awareness to continue developing into a next-level safety.

--Dane Brugler (6/10/14)

Player Overview

Carter came out of New Orleans as a dual-threat quarterback and chose TCU over offers from Baylor, Houston, Miami (Fla.), Louisville and Oklahoma State. A two-way player in high school, Carter redshirted in 2010 as he focused on his defensive skills.

Carter is one of the hardest working competitors in the Big 12. He arrived in Fort Worth as a quarterback, but stuck behind Andy Dalton and Casey Pachall, coaches suggested he move to the secondary where he struggled initially in 2011 as he adjusted to the defensive side of the ball.

Carter made large strides the last two years and enters his senior season in 2014 with nine interceptions and 21 passes defended in his career.
