He runs through defenders and shows good speed on offense, but his future is on the defensive side of the ball. He is a physical defensive back that takes on the lead blocker like a middle linebacker. He is a sure tackler and has good instincts in coverage.
He will likely play strong safety on the next level. Check him out for yourself in this quick video. The first minute is of Carter in action on offense and special teams, then we make the switch to defense. Notice in several of the clips how he blows the lead blocker back into the ball carrier. That is aggressiveness that is hard to teach.
