Why Michael Carter is the second-best RB in the 2021 NFL Draft


Earlier this week Andy Bunker and Randy McMichael were joined by NFL draft analyst and owner of footballgameplan.com and CBS Sports HQ man, Emory Hunt, who talked about a number of running back prospects in the upcoming 2021 draft, with emphasis on UNC’s Michael Carter.

“The reason I have (Michael) Carter second, Carter has elite vision," said Hunt. "He has the best vision of any back in this draft class and I talk about how you can be your own blocker. There are many times when you are watching him play and he’s running inside zone and he is ripping up these zone runs and it’s not like it’s a gaping hole. He done made four or five guys [miss] without touching him in that hole before he gets outside and takes it to the house.

“Juxtaposed to his teammate, Javonte Williams, who hasn’t found a linebacker he didn’t want to try to run through. But you can’t do that at the NFL level. There are no 18-, 19-year-olds at the NFL level, so guys won’t be afraid of you coming downhill in the run game. So I just like Carter’s vision."
