I think both play 14+ regular season games each next season.
Carp's kind of on the Max Unger carreer path:
Unger- Plays first year out of position- Guard and is underwhelming. 2nd year- get's injured after 1 game. 3rd year- becomes a fixture at Center and plays very well.
Carp- Plays first year out of position - Right Tackle and is undewhelming. 2nd year He's injured, but plays 3+ games at LG and plays well. year 3- He should start the OTA's at Left guard fully healthy.
