6-5/217 Florida State
Pros: Has good size and uses it well in the red zone, working on fade routes. Has pretty good hands. Uses size well to shield defender, and works best on short routes like hooks and curls. Hard to press because of his size as well.
Cons: Struggles to get separation because he lacks speed and quickness. Dances too much after the catch and not a factor there because of his lacking burst. Is a subpar blocker that is not as good as his size merits.
Overview: Carr might have a decent niche as a redzone option, but is too limited in the speed and quickness department to really have much impact elsewhere on the field. Production fell off in final two years, with 21 touchdowns as a freshman and sophomore, but only 8 combined in his final two years.
NFL Forecast: He'll have to prove he can play on special teams to stick in the NFL. Most receivers in the NFL already have good size, so Carr doesn't really stand out with his redzone potential. At best, he'll be a fourth option offensively. But he really needs to improve his route- running to do that, to make up for his lack of quickness and burst. Probably won't have a long NFL career, but could be a serviceable backup if he can play on special teams.
ATL Forecast: Shares similarities with finneran, but not as natural a receiver as finn. If he can play on special teams, he can make Atlanta's roster. But won't have an impact on offense besides being an occasional weapon on fade routes.
Value: I wouldn't draft Carr, but definitely worth a camp invite.
