    MADISON, Wis. -- Gabe Carimi isn't backing down from his recent boast that he's the best offensive tackle prospect in next month's NFL draft.

    The University of Wisconsin star raised a few eyebrows last month when he said at the NFL Scouting Combine that he considers himself the best tackle available.

    Asked at Wednesday's pro-day workouts on the Wisconsin campus about his comments, Carimi explained he wouldn't have said it if he didn't believe it -- and that he told the same thing to the handful of teams who asked him about it.

    "They asked me why I thought that," Carimi said. "They asked me why, and I repeated myself. And most of them said they agreed."

    Carimi doesn't believe his confidence will do anything but help his draft stock.

    "I wouldn't see why you wouldn't want a confident player," Carimi said.

    Best prepared? Probably, but best tackle? No.

    I don't know I have seen nothing in his game that leads me to believe he is not the best at 6-7, 315 with room to grow I think he will only improve. I'm not knocking any other lineman out there I will just say out of all the OL I watched this past college season he impressed me the most.

    I agree with him. I think he'll have the best career of the bunch.

    Glad he is confident. Would you rather the opposite?

    I don't. I think his upside is just about reached.
