Despite their stellar defense, the 49ers have to be wary of Justin Smith, who is turning 34 next season. Smith has been a rock on the defensive line, but there comes a point where he will have to step away and someone else will take over the reigns.
“At the scouting combine in February, Carradine measured 6-4 and weighed 276 pounds,” the Bee reports. “He also kicked out 32 repetitions of 225 pounds at the Florida State pro day last month – not bad for someone with 34 3/4-inch arms.”
Carradine is ranked as the 31st best prospect in the draft, and perhaps not coincidentally, the 49ers have the 31st overall selection.
