2013 NFL Draft: 49ers Select DE Tank Carradine with 40th Pick


The San Francisco 49ers have selected defensive end Tank Carradine out of FSU with the 40th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. They sent a contingent to watch his workout in Florida earlier this month.

“At the scouting combine in February, Carradine measured 6-4 and weighed 276 pounds,” according to the Sacramento Bee. “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.”

The 49ers — who had the 32nd pick — traded down to No. 40 with the Titans and received two more picks as well in the process.
