Maryland CB Carroll drafted in 5th round

Dolphins select Terps senior captain who was injured in first game

April 24, 2010|By Baltimore Sun reporter

Maryland cornerback Nolan Carroll, who suffered a broken leg in the first game of the season, was drafted in the fifth round (145th overall) by the Miami Dolphins.

The senior captain missed the rest of the season, and many observers point to his loss as a reason for the Terps' 2-10 season and shoddy pass defense.

Carroll missed the NFL Combine, but was impressive during Maryland's Pro Day in March for NFL scouts. He posted the top marks in the 40-yard dash (4.39), pro agility drill (4.21) and L drill (6.81). Carroll also did 17 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press and had a vertical jump of 37 1/2 inches.

At 6 feet 1, 202 pounds, Carroll has ideal size to play cornerback in the NFL.
