More Offensive Line Help! The Bears Have Chosen Missouri Tackle Larry Borom

Chicago Bears

If one is good, then two is better.

With the 151st pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears chose another whopper of an offensive lineman:

Larry Borom is a large human, checking in at 6-foot-5 and 322 pounds, with 10-3/8-inch hands and 33-1/8 inch arms. Borom is a bit of a project when it comes to attempting to project what he will be as a pro, but his size, strength, and versatility make him an intriguing addition to the Bears’ offensive line mix.

Borom was an early entry into the 2021 NFL Draft after a solid career at Missouri. While blocking in the SEC, Pro Football Focus graded Borom as the second-highest-graded offensive tackle with a conference-best 84.5 pass-blocking grade. That’s quality production going against SEC talent.

This is what we had to say about Borom when he declared for the Draft:

Borom doesn’t project to be an early pick. The Athletic’s Dane Brugler projects Borom to by a Day 3 pick. In other words, Borom could be the type of late-round steal the Bears could target. Chicago’s front office has done well targeting Day 3 prospects who turn out to be diamonds in the rough.

If Borom turns out like other Day 3 fifth-round selections such as Adrian Amos, Jordan Howard, and Bilal Nichols, we’ll be happy Bears fans.
