A knee injury shortened Ladarius Craddock's senior season, but not before college programs took notice.

An MCL tear suffered during the Tigers' Sept. 27 loss to Atlanta sidelined the 5-foot-9, 175-pound Craddock for the rest of the season, but he already picked off three passes in 4 1/2 games from his cornerback spot.

Those three picks came on the heels of a stellar junior season, when Craddock tied for fifth in East Texas with seven interceptions.

Craddock performed well in May at the ETSN.fm Football Recruiting Combine at APEC training facility in Tyler. He clocked a laser-timed 4.56-second 40-yard dash and measured 5-foot-10, 175.8 pounds in shoes. His 13 bench repetitions at 185 pounds ranked second among the combine's 16 defensive backs behind only Longview safety Travin Howard.
