Where He Was Selected: Second Round - 40th Overall to the San Francisco 49ers
If it wasn't for injury issues, Cornellius Carradine would have been selected in the first round. However, it all paid off for the defensive player, as he ends up on an absolutely loaded football team. There will be little pressure on him to succeed right away and he will fit in nicely on a championship caliber team.

Any time you go by the nickname "Tank", you must be a bad dude. Cornellius Carradine could be mentioned as a possible first-round player, but thanks to a torn ACL late in the year, teams are sure to be hesitant to pull the trigger come draft day.
When a team finally does decide to draft Carradine, they will be getting one of the more polished pass-rushers in this class. Able to turn the corner with his high motor and terrific athleticism, Carradine gets to the quarterback quickly and makes the quarterback pay. He can also play either side of the line and drop back into coverage once in a while.
Matt Miller likes this pass-rusher more than most.
The downside is that Carradine doesn't have much experience playing against elite competition. But as far as tools and upside, this defensive player has it all.
