Carimi: Bills trip went well

Posted by Chris Brown on March 18, 2011 – 8:08 am

Wisconsin OT Gabe Carimi, regarded as a sure fire first-round pick has been doing a pre-draft blog for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and offered his thoughts on his visit with the Bills.

Carimi explained how Buffalo’s coaching staff quizzed him on his retention skills and he commented positively on Buffalo as a town, likening it to Madison, Wisconsin. The offensive tackle is seen as a mid to late first round draft choice.

The Bills have to have a very good working knowledge of Carimi having also been around him for a week at the Senior Bowl even though he played for the North team.

Wisconsin OT Gabe Carimi is having his pro day today (Wednesday), but in his pre-draft blog shares how he’ll be meeting with the Bills next week.

Here’s the excerpt from Carimi’s blog entry with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

I have a private workout set up with the Browns on Friday. 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.

NFL clubs can bring a maximum of 30 draft prospects in for pre-draft visits.
