Wisconsin tackle Gabe Carimi heads to Chicago

The Chicago Bears have picked up some more protection for Jay Cutler.

With the 29th pick in the NFL draft, the Bears selected Gabe Carimi, an offensive tackle from Wisconsin.

Carimi was a four-year starter for the Badgers and the 2010 Outland Trophy winner as the best lineman in college football. Carimi is viewed as a player who’s ready to start as a rookie, most likely at right tackle.

The Bears’ offensive line just got better. Cutler should be glad.
