Big Lorenzo Carter Is Now A Giant - Dawg Sports

Carter is a freakish natural athlete, a 6’5, 250 pound edge rusher who ran a blazing 4.50 forty at the combine and also posted an explosive 130 inch broad jump. Those numbers seem to indicate that Carter’s best football may be in front of him.

‘Zo is a long strider who covers a lot of ground in a hurry. It wasn’t uncommon in 2017 to see him come out of nowhere to engulf ball carriers from behind, occasionally creating turnovers. He’s also improved tremendously as a barrier player in the run game, using his long arms to keep tackles off of him and uses excellent upper body flexibility to “get small” and slip away from blocks. I expect Carter will contribute in pass rush situations immediately but could grow into an every down player.
