College: Wisconsin
40 Time: 5.15
Class: Senior
Stock:
Projected: 2nd Round

Overview:

Gabe Carimi entered the season as the #1 rated OT but has seen his stock slide. This is in part because people have realized he may not be able to play LT in the NFL. He is really talented and at the very worst he’ll be a good RT in the NFL. However he’ll struggle with speed rushers in the NFL that can beat him with speed to the outside and counter moves. He is a great run blocker though, and he has great size. Some have said he may have to move inside at Guard and while that is a possibility, I think he is capable of playing RT successfully.
