The New York Giants were reportedly not among the 11 NFL teams who witnessed Florida State defensive end Tank Carradine go through a private workout Saturday in advance of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Carradine, who SB Nation's Mocking The Draft has consistently connected to the Giants with the 19th overall pick in the draft, was impressive for a player who tore an ACL just five months ago.
Tank Carradine weighed in 273 pounds 135 days after ACL surgery ran 4.75 to 4.85 with 1.63 10-yard split. Source says workout went very well— Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) April 20, 2013
4.75 for Tank Carradine. He's my top DE and this quick rehab seals it. First rounder.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) April 20, 2013
Does the fact that the Giants did not attend the workout mean they are simply playing possum and trying not to show their interest in Carradine? Or, does it in fact mean he isn't a player they are considering? As much as the Giants love pass rushers, especially pass rushers at defensive end, their lack of attendance has to be surprising.
Now we wait to see if the Giants, or any other team, was impressed enough to grab Carradine at some point in the first round.
