Carr burst on to the scene as a freshman for the ‘Noles hauling in 30 passes for 618 yards ad nine touchdowns on his way to All ACC and Freshman All America honors. He was able to duplicate that success as a sophomore, this time catching 34 balls for 619 yards and 12 touchdowns. Teams did more to stop him in the red zone as a junior but he was able to catch 45 passes for 795 yards and four TD’s, again earning All ACC honors. Carr’s numbers were the worst of his career as a senior, where he caught just 39 balls for 542 yards and four touchdowns.
Carr could be the tallest wide receiver available for this draft. He has excellent height and an athletic frame that could make him tough to cover one on one in the NFL. He is also a very good athlete with the body control to go up in traffic and make the grab and be a red zone standout. His potential as a possession receiver could make him one of the top big receivers available this year.
Carr relies solely on his height and athleticism at this point. He lacks the burst and change of direction ability to get open in and out of his cuts, and lacks the speed to get separation vertically. He simply towers over defensive backs and can make big plays because of it. Carr will have to get stronger and work on fine tuning his all around receiver skills to realize his potential in the NFL.
Carr is not the prospect many believe he is because he may be a tweener at receiver in the NFL. He doesn’t overpower defensive backs and doesn’t have the speed to run away from them. He can go up and catch a jump ball but he will need to prove he can do more than that. Carr was not invited to the combine but performed at FSU’s pro day. He ran 40 times between 4.58 and 4.65, which did little to improve his draft stock. He’s still a guy that has a lot to prove. He could be drafted late and put in the work to make an impact in the league, but he has a difficult road ahead.
