Niners select Tank Carradine

is he going to be an olb? or a def end? neither i think...he is going to be a pass rusher on passing downs, like niners used aldon smith as a rook
So we got Tank anyway at #40 for a third rounder next year and an extra seventh rounder this year.

Baalke gets some props...he's drafting like a boss.

He did the same for Looney last year. Knew who he wanted, still moved back, and got his guy. Baalke is slick.
Welcome to the 49ers Tank!!
Great pick!!!
Horribly inconsistent in my opinion. All the negatives I saw:

- Often times the last person off the snap of the ball
- Got a LOT of help on plays he made, with a lot of stats compiled through the assistance of scheme. Not as much through individual effort.
- Struggled to disengage offensive linemen and relied too much on running around them
- Lacks a variety of pass rush moves, relying too much on athleticism instead of technique
- Coming off a season-ending injury
- Extremely raw and no experience dropping into coverage if they plan on moving him to OLB
- Good straight line speed, but mediocre change of direction.
- Often pushed back by running backs, far too often gaining extra yardage after contact

They selected him in the 2nd based ENTIRELY on potential and the hope they can convert an athlete into a football player. I pray they can do so, because if not, he will be a complete bust.
good pick Baalke
W00t!

I like this guy a lot...DL is a huge concern right now. Glad to see them addressing needs.

I know dude has all the tools, he just needs coaching. That's why you higher the coachs, Rookie are far from finished products, He will come in get a few snaps here and there, but mainly will sit learn from Justin Smith and Tomsula on how to tap into all that talent.

And Justin Smith, Aldon Smith, and Ahmad Brooks to help mentor him.

He'll be fine.
