Carradine was an absolutely great player in the ACC last year, racking up 11 sacks before blowing out his ACL in a game against the Florida Gators in late November.
Nobody in football circles doubts the type of player Carradine is. The only issue is whether or not he can rebound physically from the ACL tear. However, players are recovering faster and better than ever.
On Saturday, Carradine worked out for NFL teams for the first time this offseason after missing the combine. Carradine stunned many scouts and talent evaluators by running a 4.75 40-yard dash, affirming that the knee should be good to go.
Another option for the Giants could be to take a corner, although drafting Prince Amukamara two years ago might preclude that.
