Michael Carter has the experience of being a part of a dynamic duo. While playing for the University of North Carolina, Carter was a part of one of the best backfield duo in college football with Javonte Williams.
In 2019, Carter broke the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the season on only 177 carries.
During the 2020 season, Carter was part of the tandem that broke the NCAA record for total rushing yards between two running backs in a game. Carter rushed for 308 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries.
What does Carter bring to the table from a skill standpoint? Carter is a very shifty runner. He is a very agile, elusive runner which would offer the Falcons a change of pace from Davis. Carter is a solid receiver out the backfield as well.
No one is talking about Carter like they are his teammate and other running backs like Travis Etienne and Najee Harris and that works well in the Atlanta Falcons’ favor.
Carter has sleeper potential in this draft and could very easily fall into the fourth or fifth round for the Falcons to pick him up. The Falcons have had luck with their fourth round or later picks and selecting Carter could continue that trend.
