Chris Johnson: Potential 2014 NFL Draft Replacements

4 of 6

Ka’Deem Carey (Arizona)

Nov 23, 2013; Tucson, AZ, USA; Arizona Wildcats running back Ka

While Carlos Hyde is probably the safest back and Mason is arguably the most complete, Carey might be the most exciting. Blessed with nice athleticism and speed, Carey has enough size and toughness to run inside and can also bounce runs outside for long gains. Carey isn’t the biggest or strongest back, but if he can add some muscle without losing speed, he’s going to be a very tough prospect to pass on in the draft. Carey is also a reliable receiver out of the backfield, which makes him one of the more versatile backs in this year’s pool.

Based on sheer upside, he might be the best running back in this draft class. Tennessee may pay some mind to Carey’s potential in round two.
