    Prior mock drafts, have predicted Carter going anywhere from the second round to the fifth round.

    The Norcross native’s 4.5-second 40-yard dash was the second-best time among edge rushers, while his 36-inch vertical jump ranked third.

    He also set a combine record for edge rushers in the broad jump as he leaped 10 feet, 10 inches.

    “Carter is a versatile linebacker at 6-5, 250 with 34-inch arms -- he can play standing up and even some right defensive end in a 4-3,” McShay wrote. “He plays his tail off on tape, and the Patriots could use his pass-rushing production.”

    Fellow linebacker Roquan Smith was the only other former Bulldog projected by McShay to be selected in the first round. Smith is slated at 10th overall to the Oakland Raiders.
