Niners select Tank Carradine

He's been without Patrick Willis for a couple games as well. Give Reid a little credit. I think what he's done this season is more impressive than what Dashon Goldson did last season because Goldson had a healthy Aldon Smith and Justin Smith for the majority of the season, as well as the other studs up front.

Jesus... Say anything that's not godly praise for a fan favorite and people completely misinterpret what you say... I'm not taking anything away from Reid and I think he's been one of the best rookies from his class. All I'm saying is he was not rated that high in anyones pre-draft boards, so there's no reason to jump all over Matt miller for rating him in the 50s. Whether or not the front 7 has been as dominant this year, it's a fact that he came into a great situation with superstars all around him on defense and learning to play in the NFL with teachers like Willis, Bowman, Smith, Whitner etc.

Why am I arguing this, isn't this a Tank thread?

Soooooo....someone can't disagree? There wasn't a mention of the mentoring in your original post. You mentioned Reid playing with the best front 7, and the truth is, I'm not sure if it's true in 2013. I can't argue that he hasn't been some great mentors. But in terms of on the field performance, Reid has been one of the standout players this season.

Matt Miller ‏@nfldraftscout

What's that? You say I'm paid to analyze players, not tweet about beer? Here's my breakdown of #49ers Tank Carradine.

Reid was a stud long before he joined the niners. He made the play that prevented Bama from beating LSU in regular season. His PD prevented a TD and assured LSU made it to the SECCG and ultimately the CG. He was pretty highly rated praised around the country and was a consensus #2 FS. More than him benefiting from the Niners we have benefited from him. He has become the perfect headpiece of a dominant secondary. I dont thimk we do it without him.

Yea OregonDuck you must be living in the pac12 universe if you didnt know about Reid

Dont have him drop back into space; use him as a one-gap d-lineman, because that's what he does well. Miller had Carradine ranked as his 5th (?) overall prospect in last years draft.

Unless your point is that it wasn't much of a breakdown...

Well that's good b/c aside from Justin tying up two for Aldon on occasion, Tank can be used to split a gap and force pressure on 3rd downs (just need to ensure he contains the edge as well though). Thanks!

This is absolutely what I see in him. His explosiveness allow him to penetrate gaps and get into the backfield within 1.5 seconds. His length and strength allows him to do even when blocked. I think he will rotate inside but I hope they let him get some snaps as a bull rusher on the edge. I think he would be a nice Buck/Predator this season.

I hope Tank plays on Sunday and dominates!

Lemon, Tank, Justin, Aldon on passing downs looks deadly!

We are going to need a serious rotation along the DL most likely so I hope Dial, Tank, TJE and Lemonier/Skuta step up big time. The Smith's and Dorsey and McDonald/Brooks may need a breather.

Good call NC - I was so happy when we drafted DL & Dorsey in FA.

Now we have to use them to keep our starters fresh for the home stretch.
