Biography: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his sophomore season. Named to numerous All-American teams the past two years.
Positives: "Tall, well-sized offensive tackle with a versatile game. Quickly sets in pass protection, blocks with a wide base, and immediately gets his hands into defenders. Has long arms, which he extends into defenders to ride them from their angle of attack. Keeps his feet moving, stays square, and blocks with good lean. Turns defenders off the ball, works to block with leverage, and shows good quickness on the field. Makes good use of angles and body positioning to seal opponents from the action."
Negatives: "Lacks top footwork and skill sliding out off the edge at left tackle. Overextends into blocks, which affects his balance. Does not get a lot of movement run blocking and struggles to finish. Cannot adjust to oncoming blitzers."
Analysis: Carimi was a force on the Wisconsin line since his freshman season and a terrific college tackle. He's flashed skill the past four years and most recently looked very effective during Senior Bowl week. He has the size to be a right tackle and occasionally displays the skill to handle duties on the blind side. Carimi has the ability to start in the NFL if he continues to elevate his game.
