Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock loves Ka'Deem Carey's toughness. On a conference call to break down both the NFL Draft and NFL Combine, Mayock said he had Carey as his sixth ranked back set to go sometime in the third round.
"He's tougher than I thought he was," said Mayock. "You put the tape on and you watch him drop his pad level and run over linebackers and make some effort in the pass protection game, you go okay this guy's pretty good."
Mayock went on to say that whoever gets Carey will either get a third down type of guy or a change of pace type of guy.
Here are Mayock's top 6 running backs:
1. Carlos Hyde, Ohio State
2. Jeremy Hill, LSU
3. Bishop Sankey, Washington
4. Andre Williams, Boston College
5. Tre Mason, Auburn
6. Ka'Deem Carey, Arizona
