If Mike Tice doesn’t have a good feel for offensive line prospects Gabe Carimi and John Moffitt heading into the draft it will be his own fault.
Not only did Carimi and Moffitt attend Wisconsin, where Tice’s son Nathan is a backup quarterback, but Tice was responsible for putting them through their paces during Wisconsin’s pro day on Wednesday.
Bears’ offensive coordinator Mike Martz was also in attendance.
Many consider Carimi to be the best offensive-tackle prospect in the class of 2011, Carimi included. The 6-foot-7, 315-pounder has repeatedly said that he’s the most NFL ready tackle prospect available. Carimi played well against top competition and his feet are quick enough to play left tackle.
Moffitt could also be a candidate for the Bears later in the draft. At 6-foot-4, 314 pounds, he can play any of the interior line positions.
