Chicago Bears Select Gabe Carimi With 29th Overall Pick

With the 29th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears gleefully stole selected Wisconsin offensive tackle Gabe Carimi.

Jay Cutler can breathe easy now. Carimi, the most pro-ready tackle in the draft in my opinion, will be an anchor on that offensive line. One of the best in the country at Wisconsin, Carimi, at the minimum, will lockdown the right tackle position for 10-15 years. I think, along with others, that Carimi has the athleticism to play left tackle. I think people sell Carimi short by calling him just a right tackle.

The Bears had a terrible offensive line that got quarterbacks killed last year. Gabe Carimi is an instant starter and improvement for Chicago. Another team that has the board fall their way by adding the big fellow from Madison.
