2011 NFL Draft Prospects: Syracuse Delone Carter A Possible Third Rounder

The Pinstripe Bowl, held Thursday afternoon in Yankee Stadium, will feature an Orange running back who hopes to use the national stage to improve his draft stock. 5'9" 216 lb. Syracuse senior Delone Carter is projected by CBS sports to be drafted as early as the third round in the coming NFL draft, while SB Nation's own Mocking the Draft has Carter going in the sixth round.

Carter's career at Syracuse has been marked by ups and downs. As a freshman, he led the Orange in rushing yards and was named a Freshman All-American by the Sporting News, but his following two years were marred by injury.

His senior season has seen him return to his earlier form though, as he racked up over 1000 yards and earned a second team All Big East honor. When he faces off against Kansas State Thursday night, he will have a chance to demonstrate his skills for a national audience.

The Pinstripe Bowl in Yankee Stadium will kick off Thursday afternoon at 3:20 ET. Follow along in this StoryStream, and visit Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician and Bring on the Cats for team-centric coverage.
