- 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.
Tomsula. We got Tomsula
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.
Not I or anyone else knows what he'll amount to, but like everyone here, I hope I'm wrong about him. I have rarely been wrong about a guy I just didn't see panning out to be a star. I knew we were EXTREMELY interested in adding him and was convinced we would try to take him if we could. Now personally, I said I would take him in the 3rd at the earliest. I see him as a high-upside player who I think is one of the biggest risks in the draft. I think we feel we can afford that risk with the talent we already have.
Carradine doesn't lack positives to his game, but I think people should not ignore the clear hurdles he will need to overcome in his transition to the NFL. This is probably the largest player disagreement between MadDog and I in this draft. The board is similarly split. I'm just not sure he turns out to be a top-round player. I see him potentially just developing into "decent".
