Right so heres my second report of the day.
I want you all to know that there are only two DE/OLB prospects that i am absolutely infatuated with and thats Dion Jordan and Brandon Jenkins (even with his injury). But another guy that really intrigues me is Carradine.
FSU is absolutely stacked on the defensive side of the ball in this draft. You have a guarenteed top 10 pick in Werner and another 2 who couldve gone around the same area in Brandon Jenkins and Carradine if they hadnt been injured.
Carradine came in for the injured jenkins this year in week 2. He wen on to have a stellar season racking up 11 sacks and 13 TFL. He's 6'5 and 265 lbs, He has a great swim move and I mean it when i say great. He regularely beats his blocker and gets into the back field. When you watch him play the thing you notice is how quick he is, hes not fast but he is very quick off the line.
One nock is that he only really ever had to deal with single blockers as Werner commanded so many double teams but he regularely beat this blocker with ease. I think he could use his hands a bit better he tends to struggle sometimes when a tackle is more physical with him. Also you dont really see him drop into coverage all that much so until he improves in that aspect he would be a pure pass rusher.
But with all things considered I love this guy, hes an absolute physical specemin of a man and deserves to be a first round pick but beacause of injuriees he wont be.
This is a bit controversial but I would honestly be not just happy but ecstatic if the Jets selected 1st round Dion Jordan, 2nd round Brandon jenkins and then 3rd round Tank Carradine... Our pass rush would be legendary for years with this group. Our defensive front would be one of the best in the NFL and would scare the hell out of every QB we face.
Can you imagine a rex Ryan defense with those guys included? I can and it makes me a very happy man.
