Ka'Deem Carey was considered one of the highest rated running backs in the 2014 NFL draft class prior to the scouting combine, but he may now be considering a change in position.

Carey ran his 40-yard dash in 4.70 seconds which was among the slowest of invited running backs. According to reports, his speed was not much improved during his recent pro day when he clocked 4.68 and 4.69.

The Arizona star participated in mainly receiver drills during the pro day in front of a selection of NFL scouts and it is thought that a position change may be his best chance in the NFL. 

According to NBC Sports, Carey did line up in the slot during his time at Arizona and so the position is not entirely unfamiliar.

Dual threat backs who can also line up on the line of scrimmage have become highly sought after in the NFL with some coaches preferring the spread offense to the more traditional pro-style running backs. 

However, Carey's lack of speed will also be a concern for scouts at the receiver position and it is unlikely that he will be drafted in the first round considering the naturally talented Marquise Lee and Sammy Watkins.
