Very excited about Tank, I wouldn't be surprised at all if he ends up taking Ray Mac's starting spot


Nope. RayMac is too strong than him. Let me see tank play in preseason and regular season. .

Ray Mac is good & he's a player I like don't get me wrong but he's not somebody that dominates or anything. Tank can be that guy, I'm not saying he will or even should right away, I'm saying it wouldn't be a shocker if Tank just crushed it this TC & took Ray's job.
that's pretty weird thinking. raise too good to be replaced and sit on the bench I love to see Carradine take about 500 snaps maybe 600 and even out the work with Smith and McDonald.


but if its only 2 to 300 that's OK too

It would be so great to have the fearsome foursome be reincarnated on the 49ers team.
Tank is one of the playes I am most excited to watch.
Could br a great investment of we can get two or three good seasons out of him. Even if it starts at 25 or 26
Yea I think he takes Ray spot next year and will definitely be in rotation this year. I could see them using him on rushing down's letting him play Aldon's spot if he's out due to suspension.

I'm so optimistic about Tank.

If he can become a "force" like Justin, Aldon; we'll be vicious - what an attacking D! There are only so many guys that can be double-teamed.

I really hope he takes over for RayMac in Nickel packages right away.

7. Tank Carradine

@taylorprice49Tank Carradine lined up as the right defensive tackle with the first defense.

@mattbarrows Tank made of iron @mattbarrows Carradine was the starting right defensive end in place of Justin Smith (shoulder).

@mattbarrows I'm not sure if it's possible to pancake guard Mike Iupati. But Tank Carradine came awfully close during one-on-one pass-rush drills when he forced the big left guard backward several steps. Everyone who is asked about Carradine invariably talks about his strength, and that's been evident in this drill.

@grantcohn Mike Iupati and Adam Snyder had trouble just getting their hands on Carradine during one on one blocking drills. They'd reach out to punch his chest and he would slap their hands away and run right past them

Tank really does have the opportunity to be a total game changer for this defense. If he can provide instant pass rush and allow us to roll DLs in waves, there is no telling how good this defense can be. He is exactly what this defense line needed.
