While TCU has churned out NFL players under Gary Patterson, especially on the defensive side of the ball, it has been a fairly quiet draft weekend for the Horned Frogs.
LB Tank Carder, who was selected by the Buffalo Bills with the No. 147 selection in the fifth round, will likely be the only TCU player taken in the 2012 NFL Draft.
At 6'3 235, the 2011 Rose Bowl MVP is a bit undersized for his position at the next level, but his football instincts as well as his experience in Patterson's system should give him a fighting chance in the NFL.
He had 70 tackles and 2 interceptions but failed to register a sack in his senior season, which dropped his stock headed into the draft.
As a third-day pick on the defensive side of the ball, Carder will need to excel in special teams to get on the field early in his NFL career.
