5 stats to know about Chicago Bears OL Larry Borom
Larry Borom said that he played at 340 pounds while at Missouri. However, in preparation for the NFL draft, he lost nearly 20 pounds and got down 322. Check out the size and athleticism that Borom has below.
This is compared to other offensive guards from the combine.
It is worth noting that the comparison above for offensive guard because it does change when you compare him to tackles. The biggest difference is the length. We have discussed in the past that 33″ is a benchmark, but 34″ is where most tackles want to be so that they can rely on their reach.
Borom just clears 33″, which is good enough, but on the low end. Check out how he compares to tackles now.
Most does not change, but the length does. It becomes a weakness at tackle and a strength at guard.
Beyond that, you can see from vertical, broad, and 40 that he does have some explosion to him. However, while he can explode, he may be a bit slow to get there as shown in the lower 10-yard number. Once he gets weight behind him, he can really shoot out.
Lastly, you can see his issues in agility scores. This relates to his draft profile, where he has struggled with inside counters and quick feet where he has to shift his weight and redirect.
Overall, he is an above-average athlete. However, this does paint a picture of a guard profile. He can explode downhill and is not prone to speed and counters in the box of the inside. He obviously creates the length advantage as well.
