2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Gabe Carimi

  • Excellent run blocker
  • Powerful
  • Heavy hands
  • Tenacious
  • Very good size, strength and bulk
  • Good straight-line athlete
  • Intelligent; doesn't miss assignments
  • Flashes an impressive play every so often in pass pro
  • Quick in getting to the second level
  • Adequate in pass protection to play RT at next level

  • Bends at waist too much - not a natural knee bender
  • Lacks agility
  • Not a smooth athlete - a little stiff
  • Poor footwork
  • On the ground a lot - gets unbalanced
  • Struggles in space
  • Lacks knee/ankle flexion
  • Hands need work
  • Lets linemen get in his pads
  • Very raw - relies heavily on size/strength

    Summary: Carimi will play in the NFL for some team and start at right tackle. He is by no means a left tackle and I will be shocked if he is drafted in the first round next year. Carimi has size and he is a powerful run blocker, but lacks the athleticism, technique and consistency for him to be even discussed as a first-round talent. I think he is a second- or third-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, and I currently have a third-round grade on Carimi.

    Player Comparison: Jeremy Trueblood: Trueblood and Carimi both have similar body types and are punishing run blockers. However, Trueblood is just a solid starter at right tackle for Tampa Bay, and I think that is the most we can hope for out of Carimi in the NFL.
