James Carpenter, 25th Pick, 2011 NFL Draft

Carpenter, James Alabama 6046 313 5.28

Seattle Seahawks

Two-year starter. Junior college transfer from Coffeyville (KS).
Gave a perfunctory effort in his play at Alabama. Beat on inside
slant moves. Missed backside cutoff attempts. Got leveraged
back to the quarterback when he lost his knee bend. Played top
heavy at times and was not always in balance. Average athletic
ability and strength for the position. Lacks explosiveness and
violence in his hands. Better than average when he locks out
and mirrors the defender and slides his feet in pass protection. A
wall off blocker. Was impressive at times in the Senior Bowl
practices. Gave the effort to hustle downfield after his initial
block. Took good angles to wall off on the second level. Finish
was inconsistent at Alabama and the Senior Bowl.
