Kyle Carter

School: Penn State
Position: TE
Positive: Two-year starter who finished with 14 receptions for 135 yards last season. Freshman numbers included a career-best 36 receptions for 453 yards. Athletic pass catching tight end with an inconsistent game. Moves well about the field, runs well laterally and effectively separates from defender. Nicely adjusts to the errant throw, looks the pass into his hands and to his credit fights to come away with the difficult reception. Blocks with solid fundamentals, bending his knees and working his hands throughout the play.
Negative: Lacks a quick and fluid release off the line of scrimmage. Does not come away with the difficult grab in contorted positions. Dropped a number of catchable throws last season.
Analysis: I ranked Carter as a top tight end prospect off of his freshman campaign but he's watched his game level off and even regressed the past two seasons. He showed flashes of his old brilliance at times during Shrine Game practices and he's a prospect with tremendous underlying ability. If coached properly Carter could end up as one of the real steals in this year's tight end class.
