MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin offensive lineman Gabe Carimi isn't backing down from his recent boast that he's the best tackle prospect in the NFL draft.
Carimi raised a few eyebrows last month when he said at the NFL scouting combine that he considers himself the best tackle available in the upcoming draft. Asked about his comments at Wednesday's pro day workouts in Madison, Carimi says he wouldn't have said it if he didn't believe it -- and he figures NFL teams want confident players.
Carimi, defensive end J.J. Watt and running back John Clay were among the prospects working out. Clay, who had a disappointing 40-yard dash at the combine, said he ran in the low 4.6-second range Wednesday.
