WCG Staff Mock Draft: Round 1, Pick 29--YOUR VOTE

Well, the votes are in.

After making our expert recommendations, the fine community of Windy City Gridiron (still on twitter!) has spoken.

With the 29th pick in the 2011 Draft, the Chicago Bears select...

Gabe Carimi, OL, Wisconsin

Regarded by many to be among the top of the tackles in the draft, it'd be absolutely heavenly if he falls to the 29th pick in this draft. A big, physical player, he could likely be an impact from the beginning of camp forward. 

Check this from CBS' Scout page on Carimi:

Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin, 6-7, 314, 1, No need for a promotions team here. Carimi handled it himself three questions into his interview session at the combine. "Because of the players I've gone against, four potential first-round players [Ryan Kerrigan, Adrian Clayborn, Cameron Jordan and teammate J.J. Watt] this year, I have a better resume of going against better talent than anyone else, so that makes me more [pro-]ready," Carimi said. "I'm physically stronger and have more career starts and better knowledge of the game than any other tackle out there. That's why I'm the No. 1 tackle out there."
