Carey, who played both guard and tackle at UM, was the fifth of six Hurricanes player selected in the first round.
Carey was a starter the last two seasons at Miami. He played at right tackle in 2002 and started at left guard in 2003, earning third-team All-American honors from The Associated Press.
A 6-4, 335-pound lineman, Carey will fulfill a dream of playing for his hometown team.
Carey becomes the second offensive lineman selected on the first day in the last two years, following tackle Wade Smith last year.
