TCU has had many great college linebackers run through its program the past few seasons. David Hawthrorne is Seattle's top tackler. Jason Phillips was a four-time all-conference selection who was drafted in April by Baltimore. Robert Henson was drafted by Washington and has played in some games. Daryl Washington, many believe, will be a first-day selection in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Then there's Tank Carder, who has burst on the scene this season as a sophomore. He has given every indication that he will be an impact player for two more years and could possibly end up playing on Sundays. He has been around all the previously mentioned TCU linebackers, but one has had more of an impact on him than any other.
