Anyone think they might take Brandon or Tank in later round? They have a need as of today and Werner won't last that long in first round.
tank will likely go at the end of the first or mid second. doubt the falcons take him in the first because of his knee injury. they need someone to play day 1. tank will have to start slow. maybe on the PUP list till hes 100%
jenkins will go somewhere like the ravens, steelers, or 49ers. hes playing 3-4 OLB in the league
FSU Ambassador to the masses
I've seen Tank as high as 19 to the Giants post injury.
Brandon is most likely a 4rth round guy now, but someone with multiple pics in the 3rd may snag him(I believe the 49ers have two). He'd be a good value in either round IMO. He was a sure fire second rounder going into the '12 season.
I can't see a team taking Tank first round unless they had 2 first round picks, with one being nearly last in the round. I could see him going early 2nd round though.

never say never. ive seen alot of reports that have teams interested at the end of the first. dude was beasting before the knee. acls arent a death sentence anymore. look at adrian peterson. he tore his and came back in 8 months better than ever.
i dont think id take him in the first but id damn sure be interested in the 2nd if his rehab is progressing well
NFL.com is comparing Tank to Justin Tuck. I think he is more Pierre Paul personally, but you win with great pressure on the QB.
I'd take him at 31 or 34 if I were the 49ers. He is actually also similar to Aldon Smith and stronger.
Pierre Paul was my first thought when i saw carradine play. werner is more like Tuck
agree Phillip. Tuck is kind of a true DL. You can move him inside or outside and he could play in either the 4-3 or 3-4. I think Werner is similar.
I could see NE taking Tank at the end of the first.
i would love to see tank replace kroy biermann.....that way him and his gold digging bitch of a wife (kim) will move the hell out of atlanta
I think they'll draft 1 and sign one in FA. Due to being so late in the first round they are a bit at the mercy of other teams. But since there are so many solid DEs in this draft I'm not sure that they trade up. Could go best available at 30 and then look to fill other gaps in 2nd, 3rd rd. That being said I wouldn't be surprised to see them take Jenkins later in the draft. Low risk, high reward pick. Plus Mike Nolan is a 3-4 DC, that played a base 4-3 last season; Jenkins could be a Jack LB/DE and the Falcons desperately need pass rushers.
As others have said Atlanta needs someone that can play right away. If Tank is healthy enough to play once the season starts than I would love to see it happen.
Also saw a rumor somewhere that Atlanta might make a run at Dwight Freeney to replace Abraham. Freeney would obviously start and Tank could take his time rehabbing and as Steebo said, get Kroy Bierman and his whore wife out of Atlanta.
They have to take a DE or a RB in the first so if they do sign Freeney it could be Tank as the DE or Eddie Lacy as a RB.
If we could somehow get Lacy and Tank I would be in heaven. I say sign a big name FA, such as Freeney or Osi and let Tank rotate in with Kroy for a year then let him start.
Fwiw he was supposed to be out 6-8 months and got hurt in December.
