Now that the NFL Combine is over and pro day workouts have begun, the Buffalo Bills have begun scheduling 2011 NFL Draft prospects for pre-draft visits. First up? Wisconsin offensive tackle Gabe Carimi, as reported by... Gabe Carimi.
"I have a private workout set up with the Browns on Friday," Carimi writes in his pre-draft blog at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "Both me and John (Moffitt) are going to spend some time with Cleveland’s offensive line coach. I’m also going to visit the Buffalo Bills next week. I’ll continue to do more visits and workouts for teams as we get closer to the draft."
The 6'7", 314-pound Carimi is a highly experienced tackle prospect that is being considered as a possible immediate starter at right tackle in the NFL. He'll also get some consideration at guard, though very few teams are looking at him as a future left tackle. While most expect Carimi to be off the board in the mid-to-late portions of the first round, there's a chance Carimi could fall to pick No. 34 overall, where the Bills have question marks at right tackle.
In Buffalo, Carimi could battle Erik Pears and Mansfield Wrotto for the starting right tackle position.
