NFL Draft Results 2021: Chicago Bears take Larry Borom in the 5th round

With the 7th pick in the fifth round, the Chicago Bears select Larry Borom, offensive lineman from Missouri.

Borom is a 6’5”, 322 pounder that played mostly right tackle during his time at Missouri, but he also played some guard and left tackle as well.

He’s a big mauler that plays with power, and some nastiness, and he may end up at guard with the Bears, but his experience could allow him to stay at right tackle. He’s a better run blocker than pass blocker at this point in his development, but he’s athletic enough to get better there. Scouts feel he has a strong initial punch, but he needs to work on his hand placement, because when his hands are right and he’s able to lock on he has success.

His technique needs some refinement for sure, which is the case for most day three o-lineman, but Bears o-line coach Juan Castillo has had success developing players like Borom during his coaching career.

The Bears are making sure they have the hogs up front after having some depth issues along the o-line the last couple seasons and I’m good with that.
