5. Larry Borom, Offensive Tackle

The Bears have a new franchise quarterback, they've given him a bunch of weapons, and general manager Ryan Pace has added some studs to Matt Eberflus's defense.

The offensive line, where Pace once played, has been a bit of a point of contention. Depending on how many Bears fans you poll, you might get a decent percentage who will blame the offensive line for the downfall of Justin Fields in his time with Chicago.

Not to pin all of that on one guy, but the fork in the road Larry Borom finds himself in 2024 is evidence to support the idea that the offensive line may have had a lot to do with Fields's struggles.

Borom has played over 1,500 snaps in his first three NFL seasons, and the Bears have taken several measures to overhaul the offensive line over that timeframe. They used a first-round pick on Darnell Wright in the 2023 NFL Draft. They moved up in the third round of the 2024 NFL Draft for Kiran Amegadjie. They paid big money for Nate Davis and traded for Ryan Bates.

It's been a work in progress on the offensive line, and Borom has been part of that. With the other additions made at offensive tackle, the former fifth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft could be in his final offseason program with the Bears.
