Analyzing the 2012 Buffalo Bills Draft Class: Part 3


My Personal Favorite: Tank Carder (5th Round Pick, 147th Overall)
How can you not pick a guy in the fifth round with a name like Tank? Carder is a two time Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Year and if you’re looking for game film on him, look no further than the most important game in school history. Carder was named the defensive player of the game in last year’s Rose Bowl victory against Wisconsin. He recorded two sacks and broke up a pass on the Wisconsin’s two point conversion attempt that would’ve tied the game. Carder was all over the field in that game and ever since that moment I wanted the Bills to draft him. He’s not a great athlete and will likely spend most of his rookie season contributing on special teams and as a backup but he has the potential to be a solid weak side linebacker down the road for the Bills. Carder’s work ethic is second to none and with a year or two of learning the Bills’ system and adjusting to the pro game he could really turn out to be a steal with this pick.
