Gabe Carimi scouting report

Gabe Carimi OT Wisconsin
Ht: 6’7″

Wt: 315

Prototypical size and strength. A tough, nasty blocker. Excels as a run blocker. Decent quickness. Shows good footwork. Solid all-around fundamentals. Rarely caught out of position. Decent mobility, looks good on the move on sweeps and screens.
Not an elite athlete and may not be viewed as a left tackle by everyone at the next level. Missed three games in 2008 with sprained MCL. Re-injured his MCL in 2009, but played through the injury. Suffered a sprained shoulder in 2009.
Carimi is basically what we’ve come to expect from Wisconsin offensive linemen. He’s a tough player that gets the absolute most out of his abilities. He isn’t the next Joe Thomas, but he could still wind up as a starter at left tackle. More likely, however, he’ll end up on the right side and could develop into a Pro Bowl caliber player at that position. He’s probably best suited for a run-oriented offense but he has a well-rounded skill set and could play in any scheme.
