It’s the classic Ryan Pace move, he’s done it multiple times Chicago Bears fans…

It’s the double dip.

After selecting offensive tackle Teven Jenkins in the second round, Ryan Pace turned the fifth-round pick that was a part of that trade to select another offensive tackle in Missouri’s Larry Borom.

Clearly, the Chicago Bears are making an emphasis on fixing the offense and it appears the team is not comfortable with the current offensive linemen heading into 2021. As it stands, most believe the starting offensive line will be (from left to right) Charles Leno, Cody Whitehair, Sam Mustipher, James Daniels and now Teven Jenkins over Germain Ifedi. However, could the draft selection of Larry Borom cause even more changes to come?

At this point in the draft, Ryan Pace has done an amazing job. Is the Larry Borom pick another nice addition or could the Bears have been better off making a different move?

In this episode of The Chicago Audible, Will DeWitt and Nicholas Moreano share their initial analysis (and reaction) on the Chicago Bears’ fifth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The guys analyze on the fly, explain how Borom fits on the offensive line, his strengths and weaknesses as well as realistic rookie expectations and share their instant grades.

Listen as the guys break down this move from every angle possible including:

What strengths does Larry Borom provide the Chicago Bears offensive line?

What does this pick signify for the future of Charles Leno Jr?

What is Borom’s floor? What about his ceiling?

What are the intangibles that immediately stand out when learning more about Borom?

Was this a “reach” considering draft guides had a sixth-round grade on him?

And of course, how does this move impact the remainder of the draft for the Bears?

As always, the guys at The Chicago Audible, have you covered.
