I doubt 23 is gonna effect a guys stock,no matter who it is.. Its not a big deal.. I'd draft Ansah 1st overall if i was giants GM and picking 1st overall.. Hes the highest upside player in this draft and the closest thing there is to possibly becoming Jason Pierre Paul..
I'm not worried about the Giants drafting a 24 year old rookie (wasn't even considering them as an option) but there's been talk of him going top 5....I'm wondering if those earlier teams (Lions, Browns, etc..) will be wary and thrown off by it by investing that high of a pick on him.

What's going on with the Carradine workout and why can't I get any updates?

135 days post knee surgery, FSU defensive end Tank Carradine runs a 4.75 in the 40 during a workout for teams
Source: Joe Reedy on Twitter Apr 20 - 2:48 PMFSU DE Cornellius Carradine ran a 4.75 forty during a workout for NFL teams, just 135 days after undergoing knee surgery.As we have been saying, do not rule Carradine out of the top 15. Our own Josh Norris ranked Carradine as the second best defensive end in the class after Ezekiel Ansah. He needs some technical work, but Carradine is quick off the snap with strong hands and an aggressive mentality.
