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.
