Bears draft RB Carey in 4th round

By Kristen Rademacher. CREATED May 10, 2014

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears' focus on defense in the NFL draft ended Saturday with the selection of Arizona running back Ka'Deem Carey in the fourth round.
   
Carey was chosen with the 17th pick of the fourth round, 117th overall.
   
The 5-foot-9, 207-pounder skipped his senior year to come out for the draft. Carey was chosen the Pac-12 offensive player of the year and finished with 22 100-yard rushing games and an average of 117.8 yards rushing per game.
   
Matt Forte is the starting Bears running back, but the team lacks a proven backup after cutting veteran Michael Bush for salary cap concerns.
   
Carey, who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds, is best known for his quick bursts of power.
