RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

After a highly promising 2012 season, Carter badly regressed in 2013, getting benched at times for poor play. The Cowboys remain dependent on the former second-round pick, however, as middle linebacker Sean Lee is extremely injury-prone, and the team has very little talent at the position otherwise. Carter has superb athleticism and could turn into a big-play threat both as a blitzer and in coverage, so he'll possess high upside if he can get his act together. He needs to hold off Justin Durant, Devonte Holloman and Anthony Hitchens.

2013

Carter is nowhere near as good as teammate Sean Lee, but he's more durable and therefore lands ahead of Lee in the rankings. Carter is one of the more promising young linebackers in his own right, though, and he's primed for a big 2013 season as he returns from a season-ending dislocated elbow. He posted 70 tackles on 693 plays (606 defense, 87 special teams) before the injury struck, and Carter's rare combination of size and athleticism should allow him to add blitz and coverage potential to his already developed run-defending skills.

2012

2011 second round pick is expected to step up and start next to Sean Lee at ILB, but will need to outperform veteran Dan Connor to do it. Carter has the speed and motor to put up good tackle numbers if he gets the chance, and his best case upside might be something similar to NaVorro Bowman's emergence next to Patrick Willis with the 49ers, but as yet he's an unproven commodity.

2011

Second-round pick adds to the Cowboys' stable of talented but fragile ILBs. If he fully recovers from ACL surgery, he's got the speed and athleticism to be a tackling machine.
