|National Football League Draft Profile|
|Quinton Carter |
|Selection||11 (108 overall)|
|High School||Cheyenne (Las Vegas, Nevada)|
|2010 First Team All-American...Also First Team All-Big 12 selection in 2010...In 2009 earned a spot on the All-Big 12 Second Team...Finished with 222 tackles and eight interceptions in 43 games...Has the size and body to be a prototypical safety at the next level...Is a fierce hitter that plays with a scary tenacity...Excels in the zone and has the range to cover plenty of ground...Very competitive and intense, but also possesses a high football IQ...Does not match up well in man coverage and can get beat by faster receivers...Is not very smooth in coverage and tends to fall for fakes...Looks for the big hit too much instead of making clean tackles...Mechanics are a bit raw, which leaves him vulnerable against top wideouts. |
