Carter Warren has an exceptional size profile to play left tackle in the NFL. He's a phenomenal fit for NFL teams as a pass-and-run blocker who can fit either a power or zone scheme. He has solid all-around technique but is coming into the NFL as an older prospect than what NFL teams would prefer. He's also recovering from an injury that sidelined him after the first four games of the season. On the flip side, teams will like the leadership he can bring in as an older prospect.
The Falcons look like a good fit for Warren who would play a swing tackle early in his career and could spend time refining his technique until he's called upon to be the long-term starter. The worst case for Warren is a career like Ty Nsekhe where he's a preferred backup until he's nearly 40 years old. Atlanta would likely have to take him in the fourth round to get him on the roster. But he'd be worth that pick and more.
