An obvious comparison for Carlson would be Anthony Fasano. Not sure about the others just yet though. I was thinking Tony Stewart for Martin Rucker, but I could probably do better with some more time.
To me Fasano doesn't look like the receiver that Carlson is, but he's a better blocker. Carlson seemed more like Witten who wasn't a really strong blocker, but I don't think Carlson is quite as athletic as Witten.
I think Donald Lee (Packers) is the best comparison for Fred Davis. Similar size, similar speed, similar role, etc. Davis might be a little receiver like than Lee but I think they're pretty similar. I think Marcus Pollard (in his prime) is another good comparison.
I can see the Rucker being a poor man's Kellen Winslow Jr. I think Winslow is a little bulkier (not much though) but they both play a similar game. Winslow is a little more tenacious as a blocker also. I could see Tony Gonzalez comparisons also but I think Gonzalez is a better blocker.
I think Todd Heap is a decent comparison for Carlson. Heap is more complete but I think they have a similar build and play a similar game.
