SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers have selected defensive end Tank Carradine from Florida State with the 40th pick in the second round of the NFL draft.

San Francisco made a trade with Tennessee on Friday afternoon to give up the 34th choice and move down six slots, also acquiring the Titans' seventh-round choice at No. 216 and a third-round pick next year.

A day after trading up to select free safety Eric Reid with the 18th pick, general manager Trent Baalke addressed another need on Day 2. The GM said Thursday he was prepared to make the pick at 34, or trade it if the NFC champions received the right offer.
