Born in Cottage Grove Wisconsin, Gabe Carimi was born to be a Badger. Standing 6’7 327 lbs this offensive tackle is intimidating and the anchor of for a solid offensive line for Wisconsin. He also happens to be Jewish. Last year, TGR world was introduced to Taylor Mays. A punishing free safety. Carimi is this year’s Mays. The future of the Jewish football. The next high pick in the NFL draft.

This year Carimi list of preseason expectations are as big as he is. Carimi is First-team All-American by Lindy’s and Consensus Draft Services,  First-team All-American and All-Big Ten by Athlon Sports and first-team All-Big Ten by Blue Ribbon. He was also named to Rotary Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy Watch Lists. This followed last year’s awards First-team All-Big Ten by media and second-team All-Big Ten by coaches. Also, Fourth-team All-American by Phil Steele. He has started all 38 games he has appeared in.

The Badgers have begun the season 2-0. As the Badgers continue to play well and most likely head to a solid bowl game, Carimi will continue to gain more exposure (including by us). NFLMocks.com has Carimi as a 1st round pick and we want to agree.  He has the size and talent to be great. So keep your eye on #68. We for sure will.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
