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
Not a smooth athlete - a little stiff
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.
Rockies and Diamondbacks fail yesterday, at least the Astros and Nats came through. For today: Closing two pars with Red Sox-178 in one and Nats -+169 in the other. In another ongoing par going in the second tier spot of a four team par will be the Astros -205. Start up par with the Dodgers -163, (Kershaw), two open. Still thinking about the Yankees in a start up. GLTA today.
@Bear Down He didn't do a horrible job even if Mitch doesn't pan out, I do believe Shaheen is going to be a monster TE for the Bears for quite a while. However Adams wouldve raised the level of the defense but Demps is a decent player and a veteran which might be just what this young secondary needs.
