Rudy Carpenter, QB, Arizona State

Carpenter is a three year starter at Arizona State. He began his career in 2005 starting five out of nine games played, completed 156-228 (68.4%) for 2,273 with a 17 TD-2 INT ratio. He became the team's full time starter in 2006, going 184-332 (55.4) for 2,523 with 23-14 ratio in 2006. It was the 2007 season that saw Carpenter blossom into a PAC-10 star. He started all of the Sun Devils' 13 games with 3,202 yards on 246-398 (61.8) with 25 TDs and just 10 INTs. His 2008 campaign was marked by nagging injuries and inconsistencies. Carpenter is a middle of the road prospect. He is a prototypical drop-back passer who lacks speed (4.85) and overall athletic ability to excel at the position. He does have good arm strength and is accurate in the short to intermediate areas. He is a leader and a hard worker. However, his balls tend to float on longer passes and his progression process is slow. Carpenter also does not read defenses that well and has trouble with multiple formations. He needs to add bulk and work on his lack of pocket presence and awareness, because his technique is rudimentary at this time. Carpenter has enough skills to be drafted late in the second day. Nevertheless, if he does not improve his timing and agility, he will never see the inside of an NFL stadium as a player.
