    Carrier, 6 feet 3½ inches and 238 pounds, rewrote the Beloit record book as a wide receiver over the last four seasons. His accomplishments against Midwest Conference defenses, however, mean little in the scouting process.

    The intrigue with Carrier among some NFL teams stems largely from the success the New England Patriots have had the past two years with Aaron Hernandez, a tight end who functions mostly as a slot, split or out-of-backfield receiver.

    "A lot of other teams want to find their own Hernandez or their own (Rob) Gronkowski," Carrier said last week. "A guy who can split out and create a lot of mismatches. It kind of becomes the hot commodity for that draft."

    Looks to be rising up draft boards.

    CBS has him ranked as a 6th round Tight End, ahead of guys like Chase Ford and James Hanna
