Notes:

Engaged. Played wide receiver and safety, in addition to lettering in baseball and basketball as a Wisconsin prep. Also played basketball and ran track while at Beloit. Appeared in nine games in 2008, grabbing 16 passes for 217 yards (13.6-yard average) and one touchdown. Played in all 10 games in ’09 and caught 34-600-4 (17.6). Led all receivers in ’10 with 64-1,044-12 (16.3) in 10 games. Rewrote the school career and single season record book in ’11, hauling in 75-1,250-12 (16.7) in 10 contests. Finished his career with 189 catches for 3,111 yards and 29 touchdowns also posted seven career rushes for 42 yards (6.0-yard average). Team captain.

Summary:

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.
