Prospect Profile: Chris Carr

Chris Carr School: Boise State
Ht: 5-9 Wt: 181 40: 4.64 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Three year starter used at both strong safety and cornerback. Played in eight games as a senior posting 28/1/3 while also averaging 25.7 yards on 12 kick returns. Junior totals included 81/4/6 with a 26.3 yard average on 27 kick returns.

Positives: Adequate defensive back who displays skill as a game breaking return specialist. Does a solid job diagnosing the action, displays good footwork in reverse and has a burst of closing speed on the pass. Comes up the field to help out in run support and wraps up tackling. Dangerous kick returner who's also helped out on coverage units in the past.

Negatives: Lacks size, speed and cover skills. Not as physical during his senior season as he had been in the past.

Analysis: An efficient defensive back who rarely makes mental mistakes, Carr projects as a dime back yet will earn his wage in the NFL on special teams.
