04/17/2013 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: 124 FBS PROGRAMS, 124 POSSIBLE UNDRAFTED ROOKIE FREE AGENTS: TULSA: HB Willie Carter (6-1, 232, 4.53)...A versatile pass-catcher, Carter has the build of a fullback but flashes the speed and body control to be a reliable receiver and projects as an H-back prospect. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

How Tulsa's retooled offense line, replacing three starters from last season, responds to the challenge will play a pivotal role in just how effective the running game is.
