Does this video make Chicago Bears out on Peter Skoronski in 2023 NFL draft

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears posted a cool video to their YouTube channel, highlighting some significant steps along their offseason journey. We got a deeper dive into the D.J. Moore trade and also his first days with the team. We saw the facilities behind the scenes, and we got a small glimpse into the Bears draft plans.

Are Chicago Bears out on Peter Skoronski?

They posted a clip that had key traits that they highlight and look for at each position. You can see the image for each position below.

It is pretty significant that you see the second trait the Chicago Bears look at when it comes to offensive tackles is length. This is more significant for them, and for Peter Skoronski because he has been mocked to the team, but the length has always been the question.

Skoronski would be a huge outlier if he became an All-Pro left tackle at his length, and his arm length is about 4" shorter than Paris Johnson. Considering this is one of the most important traits the team looks for, it gets harder and harder to see the team taking Skoronski.

Skoronski does check the boxes for foot quickness, and pass protection, but Paris Johnson and Broderick Jones fit the bill as well. In terms of pass protection, you could probably give the edge to Paris Johnson.

When you combine the realization that Johnson is the longest, he has some of the best pass protection reps, and his feet are up there with the quickest, it is easiest to tie him to the Chicago Bears as their top tackle.

Things can change, and if the team trades down, they may look to the best player available and that may be Skoronski. However, as we stand right now, you could probably name five players that are more likely to be a fit for the ninth overall pick than Peter Skoronski.

He does not fit one of the Chicago Bears' main three metrics when evaluating NFL starters, and that is a line that the team simply will not cross.
