re: Tank Carradine Has a VERY Impressive Pro Day


When healthy he bitch slaps Werner. He could end up being the best DE in this class if he is fully recovered. He's that good. I've been wanting him forever, injuries are the only concern.

re: Tank Carradine Has a VERY Impressive Pro Day


Taking Tank @ 15 is a big, big risk.

First, there's not a large body of work to really evaluate him. He only started for FSU for one year and only got that shot because the guy in front of him went down at the beginning of the season. I'll admit he made the most of the opportunity.

Secondly, it's hard to believe that a guy his size will be 100% for quite some time...if ever. Peterson's miraculous recovery now has everyone assuming all players can do the same thing. Having gone through the operation twice, I can tell you that not everyone comes through it the same.

If we trade back into the 20s, it's a no-brainer; the risk/reward makes it a good pick. If we stay put at 15, this is a bad gamble.

How would he fit though? DE in our scheme? Seems too big for OLB

If they were all healthy throughout their entire careers there's a chance the FSU DL could have like 5 drafted in the first 2 rounds. That DL was absolutely loaded. Bama and LSU have had guys only dominate for one year. When you're in those pipelines you don't get years to start, you get games.

No offense but these are freakazoid athletes. The surgery is becoming almost routine for upper echelon individuals.

Agreed. I'm not advocating him at 15 unless you could somehow know 100% that he was ok (which of course you can't). If we trade back he's the guy I'd be targeting.

Falcons are very interested in him...heard rumors of trading up to get him if it looks like he won't fall to 30
