Carter will be 23 week 1, as will Tyree Wilson.
Carter saw almost exclusively double teams, much of his highlight reel is him beating/splitting 2 guys.
The really interesting thing with Carter, is that unlike most prospects, he hasn't really been able to train his body for football year round, due to his military commitment, he's likely nowhere near peaked as an athlete yet, and at 6-7 260, could add 10-15 pounds of muscle pretty easily.
Sounds like a slam dunk top 20 pick as long as you trust that the military won't interfere with his career
Policy passed in 2019 that allows athletes at academies to pursue professional athletics immediately after graduation and defer their service requirements. That said, Andre got pancaked a few times at the Senior Bowl practices, I think his stock took the biggest drop of anyone there. Working theory I've seen is he just doesn't get us much time in the gym as most of these guys who are working out at phenomenal facilities with top level strength coaches.
Tons of big boards have him at the end of the first round but he really needs to have a good combine. Would not be surprised if he ends up in mid-3rd bc it's a pretty deep Edge class.
Also, we need to start delineating what kind of Edge we are talking about. Ojulari can bend around any tackle and he can drop into coverage - and not just as a novelty act. Tuipulotu is more of a traditional DE but strong enough to slide to 3-tech. Completely different roles.
With all these guys, though, you have to project a bit to justify the pick. Murphy has insane reps but can be inconsistent (he kind of never got better after his highly productive freshman year.) Tyree Wilson can be an every down, pass rushing nightmare who can also set the edge - but he needs refinement.
The one surefire Edge guy who will dominant and never needs to come off the field is Will Anderson.
