    This guy can catch the ball and doesn't fumble. The only reason he dropped was because off the field issues

    The fact that the list of 4.7 HBs in the NFL is an extremely short one hurt him much more than off the field issues.

    This is the first pick in this years draft for the Bears that I really like. I expect big things from this pick. Some off field issures but not a big deal. He is the kind of RB we need.

    Do you think he has a chance to produce at the pro level? Who are some RB's with 4.7 speed around the NFL?

    That's a key factor to me as far as a RB goes. Guys who average over 4 ypc but put the ball on the ground fairly often aren't guys I want as Bears RBs. If this kid can run between the tackles with good power and hold onto the football then we can use him. He's not an edge runner and with Forte we don't need one who can do that. Forte's weakness has always been between the tackles which is what Bush was for. Carey may not have Bush's size but he has enough to be a tough runner if he can stay low and hit holes quickly.

    Had to say I called it! Carey is undervalued and an explosive back. Just cause he wears #25 don't compare him with Garrett Wolfe... This guy dominated the collegiate level and will run beastly behind Forte. So beardown!

    Yes I do, speed in the 40 isn't the only test of a good RB. He has power and can move the line something Forte can't seem to do.

    If it was even possible for our offense to get better... it just did with picking up Carey! Bears fans we are gonna fall in love with this guys play style, I got to see this guy play every game live in college and he does not go down easily. Like I've said in previous forums, he is no Cedric Benson, Michael Bush, Marion Barber, and especially no Garrett Wolfe! Expect him to pile up the YAC (Yards after contact)!

    There is no pleasing some fans.

    Former Pac-12 offensive player of the year who was racking up yards his last two years and I believe he was in the Heisman discussion.

    He is a good receiver and is a hard runner despite his size.

    Bears fans are going to love this guy. He is a first round talent and because the RB position has been devalued he was available in the 4th. Plenty of good players have been picked in the 4th round some of whom are currently on the Bears.

    Carey will be a solid backup for Forte. CBS sports compared him to Ahmad Bradshaw. Not bad at all.

    Those who think RB isn't a big need isn't paying attention. We needed another back who can prevent us from putting so much mileage on Forte and who can give us some depth barring injury (God Forbid) Carey is that back.

    I think he could be a good compliment from what I've read. You don't put up those insane numbers without having some talent. He's well built and with our OL having more and more time together I could see them being even better than last year. I'll take Carey over Bush any day of the week.

    Seriously though, his numbers are ridiculous.

    well Wolfe put up insane #'s....and he had no talent.

    I think the guy is a good compliment, but there was an idea you needed to draft Forte's eventual replacement, and this is not that guy.

    Yeah, I see him as a compliment rather than a replacement.. but that's okay too. It keeps Forte fresh and gives us a different look and I'm sure Trestman will develop a niche that exploits his talents. Perhaps we'll go RB next year looking for the real replacement.

    Comparing this guy to Wolfe is beyond ludicrous.

    Not even close. It isn't even apples and oranges.

    It's apples and asteroids that's how far out it is.

    If we wanted Forte's eventual replacement (which isn't easy to find as it is) then we would've ended up spending a pick in the 2nd or 3rd round and not the 4th.

    He's a quick one move slasher with quick feet and good running instincts. He'll need to learn to run lower in the NFL but I like what I see. We do need another good RB in camp and he's worth the pick.

    I wasn't comparing him to Wolfe, I agree it's not the same thing, Wolfe was to small to play in the NFL, this guy isn't, I was just pointing out that just b/c you put up crazy #'s doesn't mean you are NFL ready.

    Yep a quality Franchise RB is going to come much closer to the first then the 7th.

    Indeed.

    For starters, the "prototypical" NFL RB is 5'11, Carey is 5'9, shorter, yes...but not that far off. Wolfe was 5'7, which is WAY shorter.

    Other NFL RBs who are 5'9" or under: Frank Gore, DeAngelo Williams, Ray Rice, MJD, Zac Stacy.

    I think fans are going to be pleasantly surprised with Ka'deem Carey.
