OK guys, so today MM said Carradine was hurt on November 24th, I believe. This is month 9 now...what exactly did he do that is prompting Fangio to continually state there is no timetable for him to even get to start practicing? And what is up with Dial's toe too?

I think it was a similar situation to Lattimore, where Tank rushed his rehab to be ready for the draft but the Niners are having him dial it back and let it heal the way they prefer, then dial him up later in the season. As for Dial, I have no idea.

Thankfully we have the personnel in front of these guys on the depth chart to allow for them to heal for an extended period of time and keep them on the PUP list.
The more I think about this Tank pick, the more I wish we'd got DE Marcgus Hunt from SMU.

you haven't even seen him play yet
When the tank is ready, our D will be awesomeR
Not concerned at all...the front office clearly knew what was up and planned for this. They got tremendous value in rounds where guys shouldn't be available because our roster is so damn deep we can afford to red shirt these guys and have them heal the right way. We have the luxury of not forcing them back early and shortening their careers.

Sure, he would have been great, which is why Cincy is putting him through remedial work to teach him how to actually play DE, maybe by the time he's 30 he'll be ready to go.

Pretty much this. Carradine is far more ready to contribute while Hunt will remain a work in progress for awhile.
He undoubtedly tweaked or re-tore his ACL trying to perform for the combine. He was mostly healed up by then and 4 months later he's far from returning? Nothing anyone's logic is going to do to convince me of otherwise. Lol

many teams believe he has chronic knee problems like Dequan Bowers.

I'm fine with him taking the time he needs to recover, before that injury he was a Top 15 lock. He'll be a good player down the road for the 49ers. It would help if Dial were to become available sooner rather than later though.
