Carlos has the size, speed, quickness, lateral agility and vision at the line of
scrimmage to be a franchise running back for the team that drafts him. He shows
good hands to catch the ball on screen plays and the quickness to turn it up the
field and gain the needed yardage. Carlos is a power runner, but he is not just
a between the tackle power runner because of his vision and lateral agility. He
is excellent at going across the formation at the snap of the ball to pick up a
blitzing linebacker or safety when pass blocking. Carlos is a weapon in the
passing game as well as the running game and he will be able to stay on the
field for any down and distance. It would not surprise me on third and short
that Carlos has the hands to use him in the slot and on wheel routes. He has
Marshawn Lynch talent with the ability to carry an offense like former Atlanta
Falcons RB Michael Turner.
The only person who will stop Carlos from impacting at the next level is Carlos.
Teams will need to do their homework on off field issues, but when push comes to
shove, if you need a franchise back sometimes you have to draft them and pray.
As long his off field issues are not drug related or domestic violence issues,
you draft him and pray.
Carlos has everything you need in a running back. The Atlanta Falcons found out
quickly that replacing Michael Turner was not as easy as they thought. Seattle
Seahawks’ offense struggles when Marshawn Lynch is out of the line up no matter
how many media people think otherwise. Buffalo Bills don’t get that Fred Jackson
is the key to a successful offense and keep taking him off the field disrupts
the rhythm of the offense and creates inconsistency. Running backs with the
talent to dominate an opponent’s defensive game plan are worth their weight in
gold. Don’t believe that this is a passing league. Most offenses that do not
have the THREAT of a consistent running game lack a consistent offense. Carlos
will give your team that constant threat and will dominate an opponent’s
defensive game plan and that is the style of offense that is usually in the
Super Bowl every year. Remember -- passing the ball scores points, but running
the ball wins games.
