Landing the No. 2 overall player on the PFF big board at Pick 9 is a huge win for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Carter played 392 snaps in 2022 and earned a 92.3 PFF grade that led all Power Five interior defenders. He registered 32 total pressures from 273 pass-rushing snaps.

The Eagles had to give up just a 2024 fourth-round pick to make this happen.

Strengths, weaknesses and NFL role

Where he wins: Power

Carter puts out teaching tape every week on how to explode into contact, and the results speak for themselves. He can really jolt an offensive lineman on contact.

What's his role? Versatile DT

Carter's frame trends more toward a three-technique, but he's more than capable of lining up anywhere between the tackles and making plays.

What he can improve: ??

Anything I put here will be a minor gripe, so I'm not going to quibble. Carter has the goods.
