A college receiver with tweener size, Carrier is an athletic, productive, small-school, multisport standout who created a buzz at the Wisconsin pro day. Boasts intriguing workout numbers, including speed in the low 4.5s, a 38-inch vertical jump and a 3-cone time of 6.65 seconds (which would have bested all but one receiver at the NFL Scouting Combine), let alone all tight ends. Has developmental value as a detached, finesse pass catcher given his athletic skill set, receiving ability and production. Taking into account a weak TE class and an increasing demand for receiving threats at the position, it would not be a surprise to see Carrier get drafted. If so, he would be the first Division III/NAIA TE selection in five years.
