Bears select OT Gabe Carimi from Wisconsin

SHARE Bears select OT Gabe Carimi from Wisconsin

The Bears selected offensive tackle Gabe Carimi with its 29th pick in the NFL Draft.

The Bears reportedly talked to the Baltimore Ravens about moving up to the 26th spot, but the deal fell through. The Ravens then missed their pick, and the Kansas City Chiefs selected.

Still, the Bears landed what many believed was the one position they needed to address. Carimi said at the NFL Combine he was the best offensive tackle in this year’s draft class.

He’ll get a chance to prove it; Bears need him to make an impact right away.
