With the 40th pick in the draft, the San Francisco 49ers select…

Tank Carradine, DE, San Francisco 49ers (6-5, 265 pounds)

The 49ers continue adding great players to an already deep and talented roster. A strong and physical defensive end who can dominate blockers at the point of attack, Carradine is one of the few very good college pass rushers who is excellent against the run. Don't be surprised if he ends up becoming the starting outside linebacker opposite Aldon Smith by the middle of the 2013 season.
