The Browns were one of 11 teams in attendance today for Florida State defensive end Tank Carradine’s pro day in Cincinnati, a league source confirmed for the Beacon Journal.
The Cincinnati Enquirer first reported the news.
The Kansas City Chiefs, Detroit Lions, New Orleans Saints, Cincinnati Bengals, Minnesota Vikings, Indianapolis Colts, Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers were the other teams, according to the Enquirer.
Carradine, a Cincinnati native, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against Florida in November and had surgery in December. Still, just 135 days after the surgery, Carradine ran the 40-yard dash between 4.75 and 4.85 seconds at his pro day, the Baltimore Sun reported.
NFLDraftScout.com projects Carradine as a first- or second-round pick. The 6-foot-4, 276-pound Carradine is receiving interest both as a 4-3 defensive end and as a 3-4 outside linebacker.
Last season, Carradine appeared in 12 games and started 11 at right defensive end in Florida State’s 4-3 scheme. He recorded 80 tackles, including 13 for loss and 11 sacks, to go along with a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
