Stephen Carr Scouting Report
After rushing for 1300+ yards with the Trojans, Carr used his COVID eligibility year to take his talents to Bloomington. Carr is a complete third down back and shows a lot of versatility in the pass game. After starting nine games this past season, Carr was able to grab three 100 yard rushing games, 6 TDs, and 1 receiving TD. The Hoosiers utilized Carr a lot as he averaged 20+ carries a game.
Pros/Strengths: Pad level and vision are not a problem for Stephen Carr. He possesses great paid level and is extremely patient, allowing him to maneuver in the box and then bounce it outside. Carr is very good at breaking tackles and contains great balance when contact occurs, almost always making the first man miss. Elusiveness and acceleration are a bright side for Carr, as he shows flashes at the line of scrimmage and continues to turn plays into positive gains.
Cons/Weaknesses: Like a lot of late round RBs, Carr struggles with his ball security and isn’t a stand out pass blocker. RBs who show grit and commit to pass blocking usually climb the scouts boards. I’d like to see Carr continue to develop his versatility through the receiving and pass blocking, something that is essential in today’s air raid league. Carr has also struggled with a handful injuries in the past, which may keep him lower on some boards.
Pre Combine Projection
What you can expect from Carr at the combine is simple. His 4.3-4.4 speed with flash to the scouts and in order to build his draft stock he needs to showcase precisive route running ability and great change of direction in drills. Expect Carr to be drafted on Day 3.
