2013 NFL Mock Draft: SB Nation again selects DE Tank Carradine for Giants

Tank Carradine forces a fumble - Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Tank Carradine, a defensive end from Florida State who missed most of last season with a torn ACL, is suddenly becoming a popular pick for the New York Giants. At least as far as SB Nation is concerned.

SB Nation NFL Draft analyst Dan Kadar came out Thursday with his first post-NFL combine 2013 NFL Mock Draft. When it comes to Kadar's selection for the New York Giants at No. 19 in the first round, I guess you can call it a case of the more things change the more they stay the same.

On Monday, SB Nation's Matthew Fairburn mocked Florida State defensive end Tank Carradine to the Giants. Now, Kadar has done the same thing. Kadar writes:

The only reason Carradine wasn't considered a first-rounder before was due to health. But he assured us at the combine he'd be ready to work out before the draft. If you think Ansah fits what the Giants look for in defensive ends, don't think differently about Carradine. In fact, Carradine is more polished as a pass rusher and nearly as athletic.

Carradine missed most of the 2012 season with a torn ACL. The 6-foot-4, 276-pounder registered 11.5 sacks in 2011, and said recently that he expects to be fully recovered in April, when he will work out for NFL teams.

"Before the draft, I’m gonna do everything they did at the combine — run the 40, do position drills at my Pro Day."

Rotoworld draft analysts Josh Norris also has Carradine going to the Giants at No. 19 in mock draft he released on Wednesday. Norris writes:

"The Giants are in a great position to make this pick, especially since Tank is a top-12 talent in this class."
