    Not onboard with this...that's just my opinion. Carradine will still go in the 2nd round and we absolutely need the players in the first 3 round (all 5 of them) to be contributers next year if we want to take the next step. If we had more depth at DE I wouldn't have an issue with it but we have no depth at the spot and we have no time to wait on someone to see "if" they'll come back from injury...if they don't then you might as well have drafted Pat White cause you just threw away a 2nd round pick.

    Carridine was on the rise fast, and he may very well have gone 1st round. He's cut from clay for a defensive end, and he played the part. This is devastating news for him but I'm sure he'll be no worse for the wear, in the end. Just not quite as rich.

    Truthfully I was more impressed with your boy Werner in the Florida game. Carridine (or however you spell it) got shut down in that game.

    Werner is the best draft eligible defensive end in the country, which is what I said way back in like June or May. I don't know about 'shut down' because I saw Carridine put on the pressure a few times, but he's been on all year and has outperformed Werner in several games. He's made the most of his opportunity and continued on from what was a fantastic showing in the spring game, which is what first had me believing Carridine might actually be a good NFL starter one day.

    The thing is that there are very few bonifide pass rushing DE left in the 2nd or 3rd. You draft for upside there and no one has the upside of Jenkins or Carradine that will likely be available after the first round. That is how you accumulate play makers.

    That might be true in other years but not this year. This draft is deep at DE.

    Either way, I want a beast pass rush like the NYG! We definitely agree that the Fins need to hit on all five of our first picks.

    I'd take a guy like carradine over a lot of the guys I have tried to pencil in the fourth or fifth round in my research. even with the injury, he'd be a steal in the 4-5 round. It's not as if it's a career ending injury.
    too bad for the guy though, he deserved to go a lot higher than he will go.
    Can you imagine adding Werner and Carradine? We could move Wake back to linebacker, or move him around to create the best mismatch.

    We could very feasibly add all three beasts from FSU...Werner, Carradine, and Jenkins. D-line would be set for a while.

    I think we should look at creating the Giants defense and the Packers offense. We have a ways to go obviously (on both sides of the ball), but this is a draft where you could get rich with some really talented defense ends. As much as I know we need to hit on our 5 early picks, I'd pounce on Carradine in the 3rd if he makes it that far.
