Former Florida State defensive end Tank Carradine held an impressive personal workout last week and is drawing interest from several teams as a first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The New Orleans Saints are very interested in Carradine according to Jason La Canfora. The San Francisco 49ers are also interested in the defensive end and may be willing to trade up to obtain him according to Matt Maiocco.
Carradine tore his ACL at the end of the 2012 season, but totaled 80 tackles and 11 sacks in 12 games with the Seminoles. Despite tearing his ACL relatively recently, Carradine looks as if he'll be completely ready for his rookie NFL season.
He is listed as the No. 2 defensive end in the Mocking the Draft position rankings. In their latest mock draft, Carradine is slated to go to the New York Giants with the No. 19 pick in the draft, but he may not be available at that spot. The Saints hold the No. 15 pick and the 49ers are looking to trade up to the No. 13 or No. 14 slot, perhaps with the goal of grabbing Carradine.
