Top tackle going to Sr. Bowl

The University of Wisconsin will be sending a pair of All-American offensive linemen to play in the Senior Bowl next week, including one of the top offensive tackles in the draft class.

OT Gabe Carimi and G John Moffitt will be playing for the North team in the 62nd annual game in Mobile a week from Saturday. Carimi is considered one of the top three tackles in the 2011 draft pool and has been forecast as a mid to late first round pick. Moffitt is projected as a third to fourth round pick. Both helped pave the way for a pair of 1,000-yard rushers this past season in John Clay and James White. 

“There are question marks around my game and I’m confident in my abilities to play well,” Carimi told the (Mobile, Ala.) Press-Register last week.  “I have nothing to hide and only something to gain by going to the Senior Bowl.  I’m a player that practices well as well as plays well.”

Carimi and Moffitt played left tackle and left guard respectively for the Badgers and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them do the same in the Senior Bowl. Carimi was the Outland Trophy winner this year as well as the Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year.

Wisconsin TE Lance Kendricks, who is a proven pass catcher with over 1,100 yards receiving in his college career has also accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Buffalo’s coaching staff will be preparing the South Team at the Senior Bowl this year, and will be providing coverage from Mobile during the practice week.
