Tank Carder Scouting Report LB TCU


This is our Tank Carder scouting report. Carder is a linebacker for Texas Christian University. Last season prior to the draft there was a buzz about Carder in the draft community partially because he had a nice final game against Wisconsin with 3 tackles for loss a sack and 6 tackles. He really stood out, but this year that buzz is nearly gone, but he’s still a solid player.

Pros:

Tall but short arms..pretty good speed…good instincts…really sound in coverage….team leader on the defense and has some play calling responsibilities…solid form tackler…non-stop motor and hustle, intense…good short area quickness…attacks the line of scrimmage well


Cons:

Needs to get stronger…has a tendency to over peruse plays…does not have elite athleticism and a little stiff…could have some medical concerns (in high school he broke his back)…Not a pass rusher at the N.F.L. level…limited upside

Round Projection:

5th or 6th
