    Good pick if Forte gets hurt, insurance pick I guess. Still wondering where are the Safeties.

    There aren't even any DRAFTABLE safeties left according to most. We'll figure it out

    How can anyone compare him to Wolfe other than his height? Wolfe was around the same height but went around 185lbs and was a lightweight scat back. This kid is 20-25lbs heavier and has the power of a guy who plays at 220lbs.

    I'm not all that hopped up by the pick but he is the kind of guy who could move a pile and be a tough inside runner if they can tech him to keep his pad level down. He can catch and he's willing to pass block so he's got the tools an NFL would want.

    Personally I would have waited and taken a RB later on but it's tough to argue with the pick based on Carey's body of work and his versatility. In past drafts when RBs were valued more he probably would have gone higher.

    This is a great pick at 4th round. This kid is a pit bull. He short, but tough. He is very much a Ray Rice type runner. He will be a great complement to Forte. He is not a goal line bruiser, but we have seen how useless goal line bruisers can be today (ala M. Bush). This guy can score from 5 yards out.

    I have watched him at UA for several years. I think he is going to surprise a lot of people.

    I hear ya' on his overall speed but if he has good instincts and can hit a hole fast and hard he might be a good short yardage and goaline back. This isn't a guy whose gonna average 5 ypc in the NFL but if he can get tough yards and not fumble he's got a shot at sticking around.

    This guy is nothing like Garret Wolfe. Wolfe was a speedy little guy. This kid is thick, power runner with great feet, who can block & catch. Really a 1st rd talent who fell to us in rd 4 due to off the field issues & his forty time. He's not the fastest RB but he has very good exceleration thru the hole.

    So the big drawback is speed? Any other foibles someone who doesn't know much about him should be aware of? That's a shame if it's that big of an issue. I hope he translates well.
