Draft Scout Lorenzo Carter News
09/13/17 - WEEK 2 STOCK REPORT: Lorenzo Carter, OLB, Georgia, SR. (6-5, 242, 4.79, #7)...The entire Georgia front-seven deserves mentioned as DE/OLB Devin Bellamy, MLB Roquan Smith, NT John Atkins, DL Trenton Thompson, DL Jonathan Ledbetter and others had an outstanding performance in South Bend as the Bulldogs upset the Irish. But it was Carter who frequently jumped off the screen, finishing Saturday's game with seven tackles, 1.0 tackle for loss, 1.0 sack, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and numerous other pressures. Lining up as a hybrid edge rusher in Georgia's hybrid 3-4 scheme, Carter has the edge quickness to beat blockers off the snap, using his natural bend to contort his body around the corner without losing speed to the quarterback. He has a lean frame and doesn't play with the brute strength to overpower blockers at the point of attack, but his active hands allow him to bat jabs, sink and sidestep, using his length to keep himself clean and find the ball. Carter has also practiced as a nickel defensive back for the Bulldogs, which is a testament to his athleticism. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/22/15 - Rising star Lorenzo Carter is helping to make outside linebacker perhaps the strength of Georgia's 2015 defense. Carter's emergence is especially noteworthy since Georgia returns two respected and productive starters, Leonard Floyd and Jordan Jenkins. Floyd, a junior, is missing spring practice as he recovers from shoulder surgery. Floyd led the Bulldogs with six sacks last season and already is projected as a possible first-round pick in next year's NFL draft. Jenkins, a senior, has provided consistent production for three straight years. Carter may prove to be more than just the most talented player of this year's unit. Jenkins opened a recent interview session by predicting Carter is destined to become one of the Bulldogs' all-time greats.
"Right off the bat I just want to say Lorenzo Carter is going to be one of the greatest defensive players to come through this university," Jenkins said. "He's a young man who is gifted athletically, gifted mentally, he just has all the tools you want in a kid. If he stays focused and commits to the offseason and commits to getting better, the sky is the limit for that guy." Carter smiled on Tuesday when told of the compliment and then said, "You can't let it sink in." Carter (6-6, 243) has heard predictions of stardom before. He was a Parade magazine All-American at Norcross (Georgia) High and was rated the top prospect in the state by Scout.com. - AP Sports
