03/22/14 - 2014 NFL Draft: Week 1 Pro Day takeaways...5. Carey crashing? As the nation's leading rusher over the past two seasons, Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey entered the 2014 combine with plenty of hype. Concerns about whether his success was partially due to head coach Rich Rodriguez's spread offense were only increased with a disappointing workout in Indianapolis, including a 4.70-second time in the 40-yard dash.
Carey was unable to significantly improve on his time at his March 6 Pro Day, registering times varying from 4.66-4.69 in the all-important event and electing not to participate in shuttle drills at all. Graded the top back in the class by many (including me) throughout much of the 2013 season, Carey's poor workouts and questions about his decision-making off the field could push him into Day 3 of the draft. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 41.*Ka'Deem Carey, RB, Arizona, 5-10, 207, 4.53, 2...More determined than deceptive, Carey led the nation with 1,929 rushing yards in 2012, then came back bigger and stronger last year to push his streak of 100-yards rushing to 16 games, the most for any FBS player in ten years. Averaged 157.1 yards a game at 5.4 a carry in 2013. Strength is his strength, along with excellent vision and the ability to make blink-quick cuts. Lacks elite straight-line speed, but never runs a straight line anyway. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
01/13/14 - Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey to enter NFL Draft...One of the most productive running backs in the country has decided to move on. Arizona announced on Monday that Ka'Deem Carey would forego his final year of eligibility to enter May's NFL Draft. “I'm excited for the next phase of my career and to enter the NFL Draft,” Carey said of his decision. “I want to thank God, my family, Coach Rodriguez, Coach Magee and all of my coaches for everything they've done for me. My time playing football for Arizona will always be very special to me and I want to thank the fans and the Tucson community for supporting me throughout my career. The future of Arizona football is bright. Bear Down.”
Carey has flourished in Tucson the last two seasons. After leading the FBS in rushing yards per game with 148.38 in 2012, Carey improved that number to 157.08 in 2013, though he finished second to Boston College's Andre Williams. Amassing 3,814 rushing yards and 42 rushing touchdowns the last two seasons -- along with 476 yards and two touchdowns as a receiver -- is very impressive, and Carey hopes those performances will make him desirable to NFL teams. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com

In total, he owns or shares 26 Arizona single-game, season and career records. In the AdvoCare V100 Bowl, Carey rushed for 169 yards, the 16th-straight game in which he eclipsed the century mark.
