    I'm excited to see this kid play. Their take is similar to mine, based mostly on the holy grail of couch scouts, Youtube.

    I'm curious to see him as well.

    I keep thinking of him as the organization's 'do-over' after the terrible miss that was Jason Williams.

    He is the rookie that I am looking forward to watching the most. With his athleticism he could one day be an elite 'backer. This kid is explosive :starspin

    I don't have much doubt about the fact Carter will be a playmaker for Dallas.

    So I was bored, starving for football, and I decided to look up some highlights on youtube.

    As I was watching, something struck me. Carter reminds me of someone. I was trying to put my finger on who when it hit me.

    Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson.

    I agree 100%. Hollywood had incredible speed for a linebacker just like Carter has

    I love the SportsCenter background music. Suppose that is an Omen?
