2011 NFL Mock Draft: Chiefs Strengthen Offensive Line with Gabe Carimi
2011 NFL Mock Draft Gives Kansas City A Chance To Build Up Front
If you thought Jamaal Charles was a beast now, wait until he has Gabe Carimi making holes for him up front.
The Kansas City Chiefs need to get a tackle, and at this juncture, Carimi would fill than need and then some. He's a mountain of a man, and when you come out of Wisconsin as a highly touted offensive line prospect, you know what you're doing up front and can help anchor the unit.

He's going to protect Matt Cassel and just create monster holes up front Charles in the running game. The Chiefs are very much a work in progress, and even though they made the playoffs last year, there's plenty of room for improvement.

You win and lose games at the line of scrimmage, and adding Carimi can help keep the Chiefs a contender.
