Projecting Bruce Carter in 2013

At NBC, I projected linebacker Bruce Carter for the 2013 season:

Carter really has just one season of stats to examine, and he compiled them in just 11 games last year. The linebacker played 625 snaps in 2012, recording a tackle on 70 of them. That’s an 11.2 percent tackle rate. In comparison, Sean Lee’s tackle rate was 17.5 percent, although Carter’s number is still respectable.

In 2013, it’s certainly possible that Carter’s tackle rate jumps with the switch to the 4-3 defense. He’ll be playing outside—a more natural position than inside for the 240-pound linebacker. Carter will also play more snaps, assuming he remains healthy. If his rate of snaps per game remains steady, he’ll be looking at around 900 over the course of the season. At a 13.0 percent tackle rate, Carter would record 117 total tackles.

    I love Dez Bryant, and have not wavered on him once. God blessed this young man with a gift. That gift has him thru a life of pain, abandonment, and God knows whatever else, but he made it to the NFL, so happy the Cowboys Organization and teammates have supported this young man. He is something special. Remember God’s Disciples were not Angels. Good luck this year Dez and a happy life on and off he field.
