Georgia Tech senior DB Tariq Carpenter accepted an invite to the Senior Bowl. Carpenter 6’4/225) is a late add to the roster and will be coached by the Lions staff in Mobile next week. A multi-year starter at safety for the Yellow Jackets, Carpenter was a stalwart player, amassing 223 tackles, 17 passes defended, four interceptions, and three forced fumbles in his career. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xObs-6MiyWQ
I know nothing about him but I’d prefer both of our safeties to both be rangy and proficient at manning up when needed. Run stopping is nice but it’s not the priority for me given the style of offenses that most teams now play. And maybe he can but that’s a big safety so I’m skeptical.
