HAM (s) of the Week: Get to Know the Bears’ 2014 Draft Picks–Part 2

Last week, cialis we profiled 4 of the hottest new men to join the Chicago Bears. This week, sickness we’ve got the remaining fellas who could be on the team when the regular season starts in August—see who’s on our radar right now:

Ka’Deem Carey School: Arizona Position: RB

Ka’Deem Carey, cialis

The Tucson, Arizona native was the 117th pick in the fourth round. The Bears need a backup running back for Matt Forte, and Carey may be his understudy. He broke the Arizona single-season record for rushing yards and receiving touchdowns with 1,020 yards on 303 carries and 23 touchdowns, during his sophomore year. He was named a consensus All-American and a First-team All-Pac-12 in 2012 and 2013, and earned Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year in 2013. He decided to forego his senior season to enter the draft. But sorry girls—Carey’s newly engaged.

The Miami, Florida native was the 19th pick in 2nd round. He played his first two years as a back-up right defensive tackle, and then took the lead his junior year. He finished his career with 85 tackles, five tackles for loss and one sack. He entered the draft following that season, and ranked 75th overall as an underclassman. And yes, that’s his real name—which may be fitting for Emery’s mindset on his selection (and that may be a good or a bad thing).


David Fales School: San Jose State Position: QB

The Bears selected the 6’3”, 212-pound California native in the sixth round. Fales was a redshirt freshman at the University of Nevada-Reno (where former HAM of the Week Colin Kaepernick was QB), but transferred to San Jose State for his junior year. He led the team to an 11-2 record with the school’s first Top-25 AP Poll ranking since 1975 and was MVP of the 2012 Military Bowl and most accurate FBS quarterback for the season. Though the 2013 season couldn’t match its predecessor, Fales has a lot ahead of him if he works his way to backup behind Cutty. The baby-faced cutie can chase records, (not to mention, he’s coming off consecutive 4,000-yard seasons), but you’ll never guess who his favorite NFL QB is:

Charles Leno School: Boise State Position: OT

Charles Leno, Jr.,  http://www.bleacherreport.com

Charles Leno, Jr.,

The last draft pick from the Chicago Bears, the Oakland, California native started 39 consecutive games from 2009-2013, and earned All-Mountain West Conference honors twice—second-team in 2012 and first-team in 2013. According to his Boise State Broncos profile, Leno not only played at both offensive tackle and left tackle (the latter in the last 26 games of his career), he also majored in Criminal Justice. So basically, don’t mess with him, both literally and physically.
