    I saw it, was very good, but could've been much better. Tirico asked only general questions, didn't approach much in depth about this year's draft...

    They didn't talk about specifics of the board, per instance.

    Still, a very good program. Don't agree with all that Parcells says. He is too focused on measurables IMHO. He has a great track record, but hasn't won a SB since 1990.

    They should do it next year on HBO and leave it unedited.

    Everything that HBO and NFL FILMS touches turns into gold.

    Him being down on Carimi makes me worried. I have had my doubts but i think that might have something to do with comparing him to Joe Thomas for the past few years.

    What I've seen from scouting reports on Carimi have to do with average athletic skills, with him being a waist bender, and not having good enough hand technique.
    Scouts pointing to the Iowa and Ohio State games where he reportedly struggled against Clayborn and Heyward respectively.
    Have also seen him projected as a RT only, which hurts his stock.

    I thought he did pretty well against Clayborn and Heyward, really dominating them in the run game. Carimi is a better run-blocker than pass-blocker and he will struggle against speed-rushers in the NFL.

    I would love that pick (even as a Gopher fan) at #32.

    Here's Carimi's highlights from those two games - http://www.bcscollegerankings.com/gabe-carimi-video-highlights/
