It’s not one thing about Ka’Deem Carey; it’s everything.
Power, speed, elusiveness, durability, pass blocking, pass catching … the entire package makes the Arizona Wildcats junior running back “a solid second-round prospect” and a potential late first-rounder, according to Rob Rang, senior analyst for NFLDraftScout.com.
“What really impressed me in the past is the agility and ability to make people miss,” Rang told TucsonCitizen.com.
“Now, you can tell he’s bigger and stronger and really grinds his way through contact for extra yardage. He’s improved as a pass-blocker and receiver. The only back I have seen that is comparable in the all-around is Washington’s Bishop Sankey.”
Rang said he was watching with interest last week how Carey would react after losing a fumble at the goal line against UCLA. What he said he saw was a player who didn’t lose focus, even while pass blocking.
“In pass protection, he’ll hit a guy and that is impressive to see,” Rang said.
