The next NFL Superstar (Vol. 1)
This is the first post in a series of posts that will analyze elite NFL Prospects in the 2014 NFL draft.Highlight video (Courtesy of ZONA):
Next week's installment will be South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney.
RB - Arizona
Weight: 203 pounds
NFL Player comparison: Priest Holmes
Runs a 4.55-4.60 Does not possess break away speed. Is frequently caught from behind on runs above 40 yards.
Big character concerns (story below)
Superior leg drive and power
Some of the best lower body drive you will ever see in a running back, regardless of weight. A 240 pound back stuck in a 203 pounder's body. Fights for yardage on every play as if it is a goal-line situation
Not a risk for concussions
Despite his power, Carey avoids leading with his helmet. He will avoid frequent concussions and will not be penalized under the NFL's new rules.
Superior burst off the line of scrimmage.
Hits the line of scrimmage instantly, does not dance. Decisive.
Can stop on a dime, cutback and reach top speed instantly.
Regardless, a skilled slasher who knows when to cut across field
Elite patience and vision.
Sees holes before they are created and hits them with force.
Elite production as a sophomore
1,900 yards, 23 TD. Consistently produced against superior programs. Got stronger as the year went on, averaged 228 yards rushing in the final 4 games of 2012.
