Scouting Report on Raymond Carterby Mike Farrell - 06/20/2006
Carter is a slasher with excellent vision and quick feet. He hits the hole hard and has excellent instincts to bounce the ball outside or lower his head and stay in traffic. Carter has the frame to carry 200+ pounds and does well in between the tackles. He stays low when running inside and finishes his runs. Carter has good speed and gets around the corner quickly on sweeps and tosses. He plays against a high level of competition and busts off a big gainer every few carries. Carter has the quickness to be effective in the passing game and a strong base for pass blocking. Heâ€™s an every-down back who needs carries to get into a rhythm.
