NFL Mock Draft 2013: Giants select Tank Carradine

New York needs some help along the defensive line, and may find that with its first pick.

In SB Nation's latest mock draft from Matthew Fairburn, the New York Giants select defensive end Tank Carradine of the Florida State Seminoles with the No. 19 overall pick.

Drafting a defensive lineman would be a prudent move by general manager Jerry Reese, who needs to look at the big picture. Justin Tuck isn't getting any younger, and Jason Pierre-Paul is only made more effective with other top lineman starting alongside him.

Carradine didn't participate at the NFL Scouting Combine, due to tearing his ACL against the Florida Gators in November. However, Carradine is expected to make a full recovery.

Before he was hurt, Carradine was a force of nature on one of the best defenses in college football. The Seminole had 11 sacks and now has a chance to sneak into the first round if his rehab continues to go smoothly.
