Former Husker Cethan Carter Drafted to XX Team

April 29, 2017

With the XX pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, the XX XX drafted former Husker Cethan Carter. The tight end from New Orleans, Louisiana, was the first/second Nebraska player to be selected in this year’s draft.


While often considered a block-first tight end, Carter had 59 career receptions as a Husker. That number placed him at the No. 5 spot on Nebraska’s all-time catches by a tight end list. He also averaged 12.6 yards per catch.

Carter was plagued by injuries his senior season, but he still received honorable mention All-Big Ten by the media his senior year.
