Draft Week: Top OL Candidates

7 of 8

Gabe Carimi

OT, Wisconsin

Carimi is your prototypical lineman – size, strength, and consistency.   I think the Giants would love a guy like this except for one thing — Injuries.  With their linemen coming off an injury riddled year the GMEN are going to look for consistency not just in technique, but in playing time. They absolutely need to hit the ground running from day one with this facet of the offense, the Giants cannot afford to have another year with plug-and-hopefully-play lineman at their disposal.

Measurables: 6-8, ~318, 40 time: 5.27

Key Words: ideal size, athletic, powerful, tenacious, intelligent, tough, mature, polished

Excels At: run blocking, anchoring, does not miss assignments, great hands and footwork, experienced against top competition

Needs To Work On: agility and smoothness, too stiff, technique, trouble with inside moves, injuries a concern
