When looking for the biggest NFL ready guard in this class, one needs not look any further than Brandon Carter. At 6-7 and 344 pounds (and counting), Carter towers over some of the other top guards in this class like Sergio Render of Virginia Tech and Thomas Austin of Clemson. Carter redshirted as a freshman in 2005 to gain some weight, but by the next season he was ready to contribute wherever was needed on the offensive line. That was mostly on special teams, but he saw some spot duty and even earned a start against Iowa State. By his sophomore campaign Carter was a consistent starter and was rewarded with All-Big 12 honorable mention honors. During that season, the pass happy Red Raiders only allowed 18 sacks and Carter deserves some of the credit for that success. By the 2008 campaign Carter was dominating most opposing linemen and earned a variety of all-conference and national honors. The same can be said for his senior season in 2009. Normally somebody of Carter's size would be a tackle (and he certainly can play tackle), but he is a great guard because of his quick feet.

Brandon Carter shut down Suh twice and McCoy never had a sack over Carter in three games.

Strengths

Massive lineman among the largest prospects in the draft. Naturally huge all over. Mashes defenders and mauls until the whistle. Surprisingly quick off the ball and in short spurts. Gets push and can sustain in a limited area. Can run within the tackle box. Cannot be overpowered. Hard to beat with quickness due to his sheer size & girth.
Weaknesses

Not a great athlete and struggles to change directions. Doesn't get to the second level. Phone-booth guard only. Development hindered by Tech's wide offensive line splits.

Like it or not their team is loaded with young talent and they have a good base to build from. Unfortunately, I'm impressed with the job they are doing.

The good news, Carter wasn't good enough to make our team and he's on theirs so we are still better than them.
