2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Tank Carder, ILB, TCU
The big red flag is whether or not he can keep up with backs coming out of the backfield and tight ends. Carder is consider too undersized to play inside linebacker and too slow to play outside. There is a lot to like about his intangibles though so there will certainly be teams that appreciate his talents.
Carder plays well in short zone assignments and can seal the edge. If he is running in a straight line, he can keep up with most receivers. When asked to change directions though, he loses a step. Overall, he deserves a shot and could end up a special teams standout.
