Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Carter's skill-set is more of a hybrid receiver, tight end and H-back with his size and versatility to line up anywhere on the offense. Number of highlight reel catches, using his sticky hands and focus to make tough grabs look easy. Carter knows how to sell and create separation for himself over the middle vs. linebackers, showing toughness to make catches in traffic and turn upfield.

WEAKNESSES: He has some frustrating drops on his resume. Not a silky smooth athlete in his routes.

The Mike McGloin-to-Carter connection was fun to watch in 2012 and if he can develop that same type of chemistry with Christian Hackenberg this season, his draft stock will certainly benefit.

--Dane Brugler (7/16/15)

Player Overview

After redshirting in 2011, Carter emerged as an impact freshman target in 2012, finishing second on the team with 36 catches for 453 yards. But over the last two seasons, he has combined for just 34 receptions as he shared time with Jesse James, Adam Breneman and others on the tight end depth chart.

08/08/2014 - Other Penn State prospects worth watching: TE Kyle Carter, RS Junior...Carter emerged as versatile offensive threat as a freshman with 36 catches and looked to be a future star in State College, but his production was cut in half in 2013 with only 18 grabs. Carter has to compete with James and Adam Breneman for snaps, but when he's on the field, he is reliable with the skill-set to line up in the backfield, inline or slot. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
