The Chicago Bears showed that they have no problem stacking up lineman.
The Chicago Bears made some trades at different times which made it where they didn’t have a third or fourth-round pick in the draft. That made it where they went from a second-round pick to a fifth-round pick. It is a large gap but they used the pick to select an offensive lineman just like they did in the second round. They chose Larry Borom out of Missouri. He is a big strong kid that can develop into a great NFL pass protector.
This pick showed that they are all in on helping Justin Fields. To use their second and fifth-round picks, second and third players selected, on offensive lineman says that they are serious about it. Ryan Pace might not admit it now but Fields going in as the starter is happening sooner than some people think. This also suggests that some other people on the offensive line from 2020 are not completely safe.
Borom is going to go to Chicago and do his best to make an impact. If he makes it hard for some of the veterans to keep their jobs, then the pick will look even better for Ryan Pace. We went into the offseason believing that getting a quarterback was the top priority and protecting that quarterback was the second priority. Well, this pick shows that they are actually looking to start doing things right.
