Draft Scout Lorenzo Carter News
01/08/18 - When Georgia linebacker Lorenzo Carter wants to wash away the pressure's of football, he turns to cello music. The only difference? Carter is playing it. Carter is an accomplished cello player who grew up loving the classical instrument because of its soothingly, sweet sound. These days, when he needs an escape, he'll pull out his cello and play. "When you get stressed out in one part of your life, it helps to have another," he said. Carter's had little to stress over on the football field. The 6-foot-6, 243-pound senior was one of the Bulldogs heroes at the Rose Bowl, blocking an Oklahoma field goal try in the second overtime that set up Georgia's walk-off win (a 27-yard run by Sony Michel) moments later.
Now, Carter and the Bulldogs face Alabama for the national championship at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Monday night. Carter credits his love of music to his parents, who emphasized a well-rounded background that included music. He learned to play several brass instruments like the tuba and the trombone when his high school did not have an outlet for cello players. When he first showed some Georgia teammates, Carter saw some eyebrows rise about his musical taste. "They didn't know what it was," Carter said, laughing. Carter, an NFL prospect, returned for his senior season to help Georgia try for a title. He's projected as a high-round selection in this year's draft. - AP College Football

10/16/17 - Georgia OLB Lorenzo Carter "is the real deal," according to former NFL scout Ryan Hollern writing for @ITLScoutsNotes. Hollern called him "athletic" with "spider-like levers" and called him "fun to watch – can you say riser?" - Insidethe League.com
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
