Wisconsin Tackle Gabe Carimi to Visit the Jets


Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports Wisconsin All-Ameican offensive tackle Gabe Carimi is scheduled to visit the Falcons and the Jets this week, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

“I’m completely confident in my game,” Carimi said at the NFL scouting combine. I really don’t have any problems. I know I’m going out there and perform. I know I’m the best tackle out there and I just have to play like it and act like it. I know I can play right away. That’s my best asset. I’m a draft-ready tackle.”

“Because of the players I’ve gone against, four potential first-round players I’ve gone against this year. I have a better resume of going against better talent than anyone else, so that makes me more ready. I’m physically stronger and have more career starts and better knowledge of the game than any other tackle out there. That’s why I’m the No. 1 tackle out there.”

An All Big-Ten Conference selection, Carimi won the Outland Trophy.

“Obviously, I think I can play left tackle,” he said. “It’s up to the organization what their needs and wants are. I can play right tackle. If they have a left tackle locked down, I’ll be a backup at left tackle and they can put another guy at right tackle.”
