NFL Draft Scout has Carter listed as the 12th best center prospect now. Other sites have him falling out the Top 10. This is interesting because only a few months ago, most experts had Carter as the #1 or #2 cetner in the nation.

But it would seem his lack of size is hurting him, and he doesn't seem like a dominant player in many eyes.

If Carter truly has slipped this much, then I would suspect him to be an undrafted player. The average # of centers taken in recent drafts have been 7 or 8 guys. If Carter is no longer to be viewed that high, it's doubtful he will be even drafted.

This likely bodes well for the Falcons. Some have thought of Carter as being a good fit here in Atlanta, and it would mean that the Falcons could wait until Round 7 to take Carter, probably without any worry of him being taken before hand. It would seem that he needs a good Combine workout and a good pro day performance to begin to rise back up boards.

I've talked to a few draftniks, and it's changed my view on Carter. He seems to have a serious lack of strength in pass protection (or what would be at the NFL level at least), which gives me the impression he would be McClure Jr. Unless he has a good number of reps at the combine this year, I'm off the "Get Carter" bandwagon.

I hope he slips real far. If we could get him in the 6th or 7th then I'm all for it. Carter doesn't have the size but he's definitely got the strength...
