Niners select Tank Carradine

Ya...typically long armed athletes suffer on the bench in terms of combine numbers. That's a huge number for a guy with arms that long.

This Tank guy is the key to the defense this year PERIOD! I figure Aldon will be suspended a few games and Justin is getting old but still LOVE JUSTIN TO DEATH!!!! Tank needs to get healthy and stay HEALTHY and Justify being a High 2nd rounder and provide a Pass rush!

What will help him and our other DLine guys is a real rotation to keep them fresh all season long.

The other side of the coin is IF Fangio uses a rotation more often.

Exactly.

Plus, my understanding is that it gets more difficult the longer your arms are in ratio to your height. So, if two guys have the same length arms, it will be easier for the one who is taller.

Tank has really long arms for being 6'4'' tall.
Any update on Tanks knee? Is he practicing full speed?
I'll say this again... the thought Justin Smith, Tank Carradine and Aldon Smith all rushing the quarterback at the same time is pretty fun to think about!
Before his injury, was Tank injury prone? ACLs are really just bad luck, but was there any indication that he'll struggle to stay on the field?

He is 24, for some reason people keep f**king up his birthdate.

Are you absolutely sure? On his bio on Florida State it says he was born in 89 http://www.seminoles.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/carradine_cornellius00.html, on 49ers.com's roster it says he is 25 http://www.49ers.com/team/roster.html , and on Wikipedia it says he was born in 89 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornellius_Carradine.


But then on this story written by Taylor Price from 49ers.com in March, Price says he's 24 and his birthday was in February. http://www.49ers.com/news/article-2/Tank-Carradine-%E2%80%98Over%E2%80%99-Injury-Eager-to-Play/c98e43d9-41fe-4d5c-9656-66d8dcffdd54


When will the truth come out about Tank Carradine's age?? This mystery is right up there with the Illuminati, Aliens, and Bigfoot.


Seriously doe. Is he 24 or 25? It's bothering me. lol

Matt Barrows just Tweeted that Tank recently benched 500 lbs.


considering how large he is, i'd hope he could bench aleast 500 pounds. Its still pretty insane to bench 500 pounds considering how young he is though.
