2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Cornellius Carradine
Last season, the Florida State Seminoles had one of the top defenses in college football and one of the main reasons why was because of star players like Cornellius Carradine. The defensive tackle has great size standing at 6’4″ to play in the NFL, but he is coming off a torn ACL injury suffered last November that could make teams cautious to select him in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Still, it’s difficult to deny the fact that Carradine possess great explosion off the snap to apply pressure to his opponents and if he can manage to make a full recovery from his ACL injury–there’s no reason why Carradine shouldn’t have a bright future ahead of him in the NFL. Plus, when looking back over the last couple of years and how numerous players have managed to overcome this type of injury to bounce back even stronger, there may not be as much of a reason for concern with Carradine after all.
Carradine showed plenty of potential during his time at Florida State and there are plenty of great defensive prospects from this year’s class. Carradine has already caught the interest of numerous teams and there’s no question he most likely won’t slip past the second round and could even go in the first.
Unfortunately, only time will tell when it comes to Carradine. The most important factor from Carradine’s perspective is he manages to bounce back healthy and prove his ACL injury is no reason to be concerned heading into next season.
