NFL Mock Draft 2013: Giants take Tank Carradine

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

New York needs some help getting to the quarterback, making this Florida State product a perfect fit.

In the latest SB Nation mock draft authored by Dan Kadar, the New York Giants selected Tank Carradine with the No. 19 overall pick.

Carradine has been rising up draft boards slowly but steadily the entire offseason and has now found his way into the middle of the first round. Carradine was a force for the Florida State Seminoles before he was injured against the Florida Gators on Nov. 24, registering 11 sacks last season.

Unfortunately for Carradine, that injury was an ACL tear that ended his season. However, Carradine expects to be 100 percent by April, just in time for workouts and the subsequent draft.

The Giants have name players on their defensive line with Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck, but the group as a whole was underwhelming in New York's most recent 9-7, non-playoff campaign. In a division with athletic freaks playing quarterback in Michael Vick and Robert Griffin III, an athlete such as Carradine is invaluable.
