Sean Keeley, Syracuse blogger at Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician, was kind enough to do a guest post for us last week on Colts fourth round pick Delone Carter. Like Dan Kadar at Mocking The Draft, Keeley thinks Carter can carry the load for the Colts.

Recently, Carter was a guest on 1070 The Fan's 'Grady and Big Joe' show in Indianapolis. When asked how he felt about the prospect of taking hand-offs from a certain Peyton Manning, Carter was pretty clear on how feelings regarding that:

'It's an honor to be playing with [Peyton Manning].'

Yeah, sounds like he's gonna fit right in.

Also during the interview, Carter spoke about working on become a complete back, citing a desire to improve his backside corner blitz protection. But, Carter made it clear that what he very much likes to do is run in short yardage, pounding through tackles and getting successful gains.

'I like to get in there dig with the dogs.'

Carter also spoke about his degree at Syracuse. The man is 5'9 and 225 pounds of solid muscle. He looks like a bouncer, or a member of Navy SEAL Team Six. Yet, his degree was in child development, and his goal after football is to work with children. Kind of an interesting little character trait, and I kind of have a bit more respect for him than I would any other rookie coming in.
