TCU senior S Sam Carter had an interception in Saturday's 82-27 thrashing of Texas Tech.

Carter entered the 2014 campaign with nine career interceptions, and he's added two more to that total this season. Over the summer, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler called Carter a "work-in-progress" who must work on his tackling technique. According to the analyst, the former QB "uses his eyes well to read, react and attack, covering the deep half of the field and lining up near the line of scrimmage."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler calls TCU senior S Sam Carter a "work-in-progress" who must work on his tackling technique.

Brugler calls Carter "one of the hardest competitors" in the Big 12. A former QB, Carter struggled initially when the Horned Frogs' coaching staff shifted him to the secondary in 2011. He's improved rapidly over the past few years. "He uses his eyes well to read, react and attack, covering the deep half of the field and lining up near the line of scrimmage," Brugler wrote. "Carter needs to improve his tackling technique to better break down and finish once he makes contact, but he has improved in this area. Overall, he is still a work-in-progress, but he shows the confidence, athleticism and natural ball awareness to continue developing into a next level safety." Carter enters the 2014 campaign with nine interceptions and 21 passes defended in his career.

When watching TCU senior CB Jason Verrett, Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl noted that junior S Sam Carter was "jumping off the tape."

Carter started all 13 games in 2012, mostly at the strong safety spot. Weidl was impressed by the junior's "big time" interception against Oklahoma. He registered 63 total tackles, 6.5 for loss, including three sacks. Carter added four interceptions, one forced fumble and 10 pass breakups.
