No. 2: LB Tank Carradine
Coming out of Florida State, Tank Carradine was part of Trent Baalke’s “All-ACL” team. He was drafted in the second round and was supposed to be a solid pass-rusher. He never lived up to the expectations, potentially due to playing out of position.
Heading into 2016, Carradine lost weight and the 49ers decided to try him at outside linebacker after his failures along the defensive line.
To nobody’s surprise, Carradine posted zero sacks, with only 18 tackles in 13 games played this season. For his career, he’s only had four sacks and 57 tackles total.
The verdict is in on Carradine and it’s that he’ll never live up to the hype from when he was drafted. It’s best that the 49ers part ways with Carradine and use this draft to add edge rushers.
Carradine is proven to be unsuccessful and he will only be taking snaps away from a young player who has the potential to succeed. He shouldn’t be on the San Francisco 49ers’ 53-man roster this coming fall.
