25-Year-Old Defensive Tackle – San Francisco 49ers
2014 Fantasy Football Outlook
Carradine is working his way back from a severe knee injury he sustained in 2012. If he is fully healthy, he could compete for a backup role on the defensive line in 2014....
Tank Carradine Contract Information:
Signed a four-year deal with the 49ers in May of 2013.
The 49ers are saying that Carradine (knee) was actually placed on season-ending IR in early December simply to give his surgically-repaired ACL ample time to heal and not because he suffered any sort of a setback, the Sacramento Bee reports.

Tank Carradine: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Carradine is a significantly better prospect than former teammate Bjoern Werner, even if media coverage of the two wouldn't lead you to think so. Carradine's 40 time from Saturday was excellent, as he suffered a torn ACL on Nov. 24. For some perspective on what that number means, consider than Ryan Broyles ran a 4.57-second 40-yard dash just under 23 weeks from his torn ACL, while Carradine put up his 4.75 exactly 21 weeks from his injury. Broyles, of course, likely ran his dash in the 180-pound range, while Carradine checked in at 276 at the Combine. To recap, that's a 4.75-second 40-yard dash at over 270 pounds, just 21 weeks from an ACL tear. You can lock Carradine into the first round of the draft, and he's in the hunt to go in the first 20 picks.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The second-round pick in the 2013 draft is still in recovery from Novemeber surgery to repair a torn ACL. He is expected to make the 53-man roster and be ready to play by the time the season opens, but will be limited mostly to work on special teams as he sits as a reserve behind the likes of Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks.
