Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Limited overall athletic ability, with limited explosiveness and speed, will struggle athletically to make dynamic plays at the next level. Limited COD, can execute stop/start cuts such as jukes fairly effectively but isn’t naturally nimble or twitchy on his feet. Average body control and limited bend/flexibility, lacks the body flexibility to weaponize it through the hole or in the open field. Average play strength, has the toughness and motor to win some engagements against weaker defenders but lacks the raw power to break tackles against most front seven defenders.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Average ball security, 5 fumbles across his college career. Adequate path discipline, patient for blocks to setup on outside runs. Limited Outside Run Ability, limited by explosiveness and speed to get to the edge or cutback and burst. Average inside run performance, plays with adequate toughness and motor to battle inside but struggles to stay skinny and slip through interior gaps. Limited ability to create on his own and poor MYM, not a natural playmaker with the ball, doesn’t have the agility or power to evade or break tackles, will rely solely on scheme and blocking to make gains. Average finisher in the open field, isn’t overly strong in contact so won’t break free of many tackles. Adequate hands, with average receiving ability, limited by COD and overall AA from making extensive plays in the pass game. Average Pass Pro, average lateral agility to initially mirror, adequate base/anchor to deal with impact and average UOH, biggest issue is technical, bows his head when engaging in Pass Pro which is not only an effectiveness issue but a safety one too.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Stephen Carr is a fifth-year graduate transfer from Indiana who has featured in 44 career games. Five-star RB, No. 20 nationally in 2017 according to 247 sports. All-American in HS by numerous outlets. Originally committed to USC where he became an immediate rotational back, a role he struggled to evolve from in his four-year Trojan career with a season-high of 86 carries. Transferred to Indiana for 2021, seeking an expanded role, but a season-ending ankle injury cut his 2021 season to just 9 games. However, given his extensive starting-role he still generated college career highs in carries (154), yards (589), and TDs (6). Stephen Carr projects as a bubble-roster/ practice squad RB in a gap offensive scheme. Given a lack of high-end AA, he’ll need to develop his inside-running ability or receiving/Pass Pro to earn himself a roster spot and playing time.
