  • San Francisco 49ers' (11) Quinton Patton and (89) Vance McDonald are sitting while waiting to be photographed at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere, on Saturday, May 18, 2013 in Pasadena, Calif.

The 49ers signed defensive tackle Cornellius “Tank” Carradine and tight end Vance McDonald to four-year deals, the team announced Thursday.

Carradine was selected 40th overall in the second round in the NFL Draft. At Florida State, he had 118 tackles, 16½ sacks and 21 tackles for loss in 25 career games. As a senior, he earned third-team All-America and first-team All-ACC honors as the Seminoles defense finished last season ranked second in total defense and third in run defense nationally.

McDonald was the second of the 49ers’ two second-round draft picks. In 41 career games for Rice, McDonald had 119 receptions for 1,504 yards and 15 touchdowns. McDonald will be tasked with replacing Delanie Walker, who bolted in free agency to join the Tennessee Titans. Walker tallied 21 catches for 344 yards last season for the Niners.
