The 49ers announced they placed 2013 second-round draft pick DE Tank Carradine on the injured reserve on Tuesday afternoon. Carradine was unable to play for the 49ers after coming off an injury in 2012. In a corresponding move, the 49ers signed G Ryan Seymour from the Seattle Seahawks practice squad to take his place.

Carradine was one of two 49ers second-round draft picks in the 2013 NFL Draft. After trading down, San Francisco selected the defensive lineman and acquired an extra draft pick in the process. Carradine is only a fraction of what the 49ers have in exchange for Alex Smith.

Drafted out of Florida State, the defensive end suffered a torn ACL in November 2012. Had he been healthy, Carradine would have been a first-round draft pick in 2013. Carradine sat out the entire OTAs and minicamp with the injury and remained on the non-football injury list before being activated to the 53-man roster in Week 9.

Carradine was a healthy scratch in all five games when on the 53-man roster. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said even though he is no longer injured, he needed to prove he is ready to compete at the NFL level.

Seymour was a seventh-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in the 2013 NFL Draft. Taken out of Vanderbilt, the offensive lineman was signed to the practice squad in Week 1 after their roster was trimmed to 53 players.

Meanwhile, the 49ers also announced they signed WR Devon Wylie to their practice squad as a corresponding move to Michael Thomas being signed by the Dolphins earlier this morning. Wylie was a fourth-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2012 NFL Draft.
