Former UA star Ka'Deem Carey selected by Chicago Bears in 4th round of NFL Draft
Former UA star Ka'Deem Carey was selected in the 4th round -- No. 117 overall -- by the Chicago Bears on Saturday, making him the 11th running back selected.
Carey, whose 5,483 yards top the UA's all-time rushing list, led the nation in rushing as a sophomore and finished No. 3 as a senior despite missing six quarters due to suspension.
The 5-foot-10, 207-pound back likely fell in the draft due to a combination of off-the-field issues and a poor combine performance, where he posted a 4.7 in the 40-yard dash.
He had a run-in with campus police at a basketball game faced domestic violence charges, though those were eventually dropped.
Carey finished his career by crossing the 100-yard mark in 16 straight games, which is the longest streak in Pac-12 history and the longest for any FBS player in the last 10 years.
Carey also owns the Pac-12 single-game rushing mark after racking up 366 yards on the ground against Colorado as a sophomore. He was also the first UA running back to record back-to-back 200-yard rushing games.
