Tank Carder

Linebacker | TCU

The Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Year makes the big plays (54 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 11 passes defended or broken up) and he makes every play. Tank Carder has started 25 consecutive games for the Horned Frogs. They have won 24 of them.

Carder will play an integral role in how TCU deals with the mammoth offensive line and deep well of running backs of the point machine that is Wisconsin. The Badgers will discover what every other TCU opponent knows: Carder is everything you want in a linebacker, including that name.
