Akeem Ayers is weak, he went late 2 and hes healthy
3rd - Bruce Carter - LB/UNC - 1st rounder w/o the injury. Bradie is 30 and will be a free agent. They take the super athlete to pair w/ the super student(Sean Lee)
3rd - Bruce Carter - LB - UNC - 6'2"/240/Possible 4.5 40 time - Coming off an injury if not he might have been a late 1st rounder. I love this guys athleticism and fluidness. Very natural IMO. Suped-up Jason Williams except I never thought he looked lost on the field. Blocked 8 kicks in his career
4th - Bruce Carter ILB- UNC - Freak athlete in the middle of a loaded UNC defense.....er when they actually played. ACL surgery drops his stock. We cam afford to wait a bit on him. Frankly, I think this is a huge steal. He looked like a top 20 pick to me.
Turns out he is almost healthy already so they got a top 20 player at 40.
