Duron Carter Appears Headed To The 2013 NFL Draft

The college career of wide receiver Duron Carter failed to live up to expectations. Duron, the son of former Minnesota Vikings receiver Cris Carter, entered college in 2009 as a four star recruit for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Carter was ranked the No. 11 wideout in the nation and his family roots had everyone excited about his potential.

Now, it appears that Carter’s career has officially come to an end after four stops.  Florida Atlantic Owls head coach Carl Pelini confirmed over the weekend that Carter would be leaving the school.

He is now expected to enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

Carter began his college career at Ohio State before transferring to the JUCO level with Coffeyeville (Kansas) Community College. Carter than went to transferred to Alabama before finding his way to FAU. His failures in the classroom were a big reason for Carter’s disappointing career.

In his first year at Ohio State, Carter hauled in 13 passes for 176 yards. At the JUCO level, Carter caught 44 passes for 690 yards and 10 touchdowns. Those were the last stats of his college career. Carter failed to see the field at Alabama or FAU.

It is unlikely that anyone will spend a draft pick on Carter, but he should receive a shot in the NFL as an undrafted free agent.

Personally, I can’t wait to see Carter’s Wonderlic score. It should be pure comedy.
