2012 NFL Draft: TCU's Tank Carder Wants To Join Steelers

93.7 The Fan has an interview with TCU inside linebacker Tank Carder, who talks about the NFL Combine, the NFL Draft, and his desire to join the Steelers.

Carder wasn't regarded as a top draft prospect a couple months ago, and he probably still isn't, but his strong combine performance enhanced his stock -- he had a 4.69 time in the 40-yard dash.

"It would be an honor to play for Pittsburgh. Watching [the Steelers] in Super Bowls the past couple years, it would be awesome just to be a part of that. I would love to, and it would be an honor to be a part of Pittsburgh and the things that they do."

Carder might be on the Steelers' radar in the late round, particularly if they don't end up picking someone like Dont'a Hightower in the first round. Walter Football projects that Carder will be a third-round pick, and ranks him fifth among inside linebackers. Luke Kuechly and Hightower are Nos. 1 and 2. With the departure of James Farrior, the Steelers have a spot open at inside linebacker.
