Overview:

Delone Carter is a nice mid-round running back prospect with the potential to carry the load for a team in the NFL. He’s runs hard and is very adept between the tackles. He’s agile although he prefers to run people over in the open field rather than juking them. He’s not a big play guy but he should be a consistent option in the running game and a guy who could pick up the first down in short yardage situations.
