5. Is Peter Skoronski a fit for the Chicago Bears?

The only real question with Peter Skoronski is the arm length. The Chicago Bears released a video that says that they factor in arm length to their evaluation, and with that, you have Skoronski at number five. Everything beyond that says that he is a slam dunk for the Chicago Bears here.

Skoronski has the experience that the other tackles do not have, and with that, he is more technically sound than them. Still, his athletic upside is being underrated due to the upside from the other options at tackle. This is a great athlete.

The reality is that even if Skoronski stays at tackle, the length will always be his one flaw. It will always limit him from being that elite, Trent Williams status. At the same time, he has no flaws at all at guard. That gives us an interesting trade-off. Zack Martin or Marshall Yanda would still be in the discussion for number nine overall in any draft.

Ryan Poles identifying length as a major factor is why he Skoronski is this low. However, Poles saying he wants the five best players and will figure it out later is why he is so high on this list.
