According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Bucs have held a private workout with Fresno State defensive end Chris Carter. The 6-foot-1, 248-pound Carter played outside linebacker at the East-West Shrine Game in Orlando, FL in January. In the actual game Carter registered three tackles.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, Carter had the second fastest time of any defensive linemen at 4.62 seconds. He also had the fourth best vertical jump (36") and second best 3-cone drill (6.88 seconds). Last year Carter had 11 sacks with 55 tackles, 16.5 tackles for a loss, and four forced fumbles. For his career Carter totaled 205 tackles with 38 tackles for a loss, 19.5 sacks, and seven forced fumbles. At this time Carter is viewed as a mid to late-round pick.

Carter is a tweener outside linebacker/defensive end. Those kind of defenders are now options for Tampa Bay after head coach and defensive coordinator Raheem Morris implemented the 3-4 and 3-3-5 defense into the Bucs playbook.

    georgehicks: Most things I've seen have him rated as a low 2nd round early 3rd round pick.

    I say it great, can anyone tell me where do you think Carter would be in the rankings a 1st round pick or late round 1st round pick or a 2nd round pick. If they get Carter, does that means that poucey could fall in the bucs lap at #20!
