Player Background
Two-time Mountain West Conference Player of the Year (2013, 2012) ... Sammy Baugh Award winner in 2013 ... MWC-record 5,083 passing yards as a senior to go with 50 TDs to just eight INTs, becoming just the fourth QB in FBS history with 5,000 passing yards and 50 TDs in a single season ... 4,104 yards, 37 TDs and seven INTs in 2012 ... Improved his completion percentage in all three seasons as a starter (.687 in 2013) ... Great throwing technique and has displayed an ability to make every throw ... Squeezes balls into tight spaces on a regular basis ... An outstanding athlete (4.69 40-yard dash and 34.5-inchvertical leap at the NFL Combine), can escape the pocket and make throws on the move ... Production only improved with Fresno State's head coaching/scheme change between his sophomore and junior seasons ... High level of football intelligence and a proven leader ... On the smaller side both in terms of height and bulk ... Over-confident at times, forcing throws instead of throwing it away ... Footwork sloppy at times ... Numbers inflated by high-flying MWC with poor defenses ... Brother of former No. 1 overall pick David Carr.
