Carroll is one of the more underrated Maryland football players in recent years.
The cornerback was selected in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. He spent the first four years of his career with the Dolphins before signing with the Philadelphia Eagles.
He’s recorded 77 tackles, 18 pass breakups, and two interceptions during his time with the Eagles. Carroll even took an interception back on a touchdown against the New York Giants in 2015.
Through three games in 2016, Carroll has registered six tackles and four pass breakups in his three starts. He’s gotten burnt a few times, including in the season opener by converted wideout Terrelle Pryor of the Cleveland Browns.
Carroll chose to re-sign with the team after his contract expired following the 2015 season. He’s been extremely solid since coming to Philadelphia. It also doesn’t hurt that the Eagles have one of the best safety tandems around in Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod.
Carroll’s 2015 campaign was cut short due to injury, so it’ll be interesting what he can do during a full season as one of the team’s starting corners.
