It's that time again. For those who may be unfamiliar, LRG is a segment I do on players who may not be getting a lot of love from draft experts, but who I still think could be solid contributors nonetheless. This year I'll be starting with one of my favorite players in college football, Tank Carder, an outside linebacker from TCU.
It's about time we moved on from Will Witherspoon.
Not that there's necessarily anything wrong with him, he seems like a good guy and I've got no huge complaints with his performance, but the team is getting younger, that's simply the way things are right now. The strongside and middle linebacker positions have been filled already by two stellar rookies, now it's time to find a young weakside backer to round out the unit. I have serious doubts that linebacker will be a position the Titans look at early in the draft due to other needs, so this pick also actually makes a bit of sense. What's more is that this is a very deep class for linebackers, Carder's stock should slip because of this which makes him a perfect candidate for this years' steal of the draft.
