While there aren't a lot of Nebraska Football players who are expected to go in the NFL draft this year, there is one player who is starting to get some more attention. Former tight end Cethan Carter has the physical tools to be a "matchup problem" at the next level, according to at least one offensive mastermind who recently got to coach him up a little bit. Carter is one of those that might have seen his stock drop not because he can't compete at the NFL level, but because he had a quarterback all four years here that did not allow him to show what he could do.

The greatest show on turf

Former St.

Louis Rams head coach Mike Martz got a really good look at the talented Nebraska football tight end when Carter made an appearance at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. While Carter didn't put up huge numbers, he was a favorite of his teammates and his coaches. Martz was the architect of the "Greatest Show on Turf" offense that was piloted by quarterback Kurt Warner. That offense led Martz's teams to two Super Bowls and one world Championship.

Of course, in what might be the weirdest games of "Seven Degrees of Kevin Bacon" ever, Kurt Warner is now tied to the Nebraska football program thanks to his son Kade, recently committing to play for the Huskers.

Comparisons to Jordan Reed

After seeing him play at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, Martz and Carter's position coach for the event both think the former Nebraska football star has a chance to be a real asset to an NFL team.

That position coach, Anthony Becht said his frame and size reminds him a bit of Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed according to the Land of 10. Just how big a compliment is that? Reed caught 66 passes for 686 yards and six touchdowns last season.

If the Nebraska football pass catcher can find himself a team that has an accurate quarterback, something he never had while in Lincoln, it might be a sight to see.

Husker fans should take a beat, as there are still plenty of doubts about his strength at the point of attack, but it appears he's a dark horse candidate to be something special at the next level.
