"Once Carl Charon increases his mobility by lightening his steps, he'll be extremely valuable as a safetyman. The shorty (5-10) from Boyne City, Michigan has such proper body balance that can adjust rapidly to meet the many fakes and moves of potential pass receivers.
He was a running back at Michigan State until he turned to defensive work as a senior. Carl intercepted seven passes in '62 and returned them 131 yards.
He can also do the job as a corner back."
-Don Schiffer, Pro Football 1963
