I'd be surprised if he didn't go top 5 on Thursday.
Don't count out Leon Sandcastle.
He's one of those players that the internet mistakenly forgets about...
He's the only player with elite pass rushing skills from the DE/4-3 position, in the draft. He's also a beast in pursuit and against the run.
I'll bet he gets drafted before the Steelers pick, and it would not surprise me at all if he went to jax, oak, phi, clev at the top of the draft
he'd be the 3rd best DE on his team if Brandon Jenkins didnt hurt himself. Hes freakishly strong, and will be a draft day riser but the statement that youd be SURPRISED if hes not taken top 5 is a big reach. Sure its possible, but it would not be shocking to see him go in the teams
i would LOVE to see him go in that top 17 though...just keep pushing a jones/patterson/jordan/mingo down the board.
If a guard (or 2), carradine, and a QB go in the top 17 i like our chances. Jets getting #13 might have screwed us though

Not comparing their skill sets/strengths.... but I was right about Aldon Smith (said he'd be a top 5 pick... Yes, I consider myself right even though he went 7th.... Mayock had Robert Quinn and Cameron Jordan ranked ahead of Aldon) when everyone had him as a late 1st/2nd rounder going into draft day... and I'll be right about Carradine on Thursday too.
yeah but tank is much more like robert ayers than he is aldon smith. Different animals when it comes to pass rushing
Carradine's combination of power, speed, and technique make him the most complete "Hand Down/D Line" pass rusher since Mario Williams
i get it...im just saying aldon was a fast riser in the same way JPP was....high risk high reward. Carradine is a safer pick, but not likely to get those sack numbers.
I say Robert Ayers, you say Mario Williams....we DEFINITELY arent going to agree on that lol
I say hes not even as good of a prospect as Derrick Morgan, who was and still is very meh. I see Carradine much more in the mold of a Jamaal Anderson (prospect, not the bum pro version) and Robert Ayers as a base LE or a gap 34 DE
Top 5 would surprise me, top 15 not so much. I like him as a top 20 guy, not nearly as high on him as you are.
