2. Larry Borom, offensive tackle

The Chicago Bears have renovated their offensive line over the last couple of years, and one of the potential casualties on that unit as a result of the renovations could end up being former fifth-round pick Larry Borom.

Da Windy City's own Devon Platana wrote this regarding Borom earlier this offseason:

"That's where the positives end, though. Borom was horrendous in 2023, allowing 25 pressures (16 hurries, 3.0 sacks, 6 QB hits) despite playing a career-low 225 pass-block downs. When it came to eligible tackles on PFF, the Detroit, MI native ranked 12th-worst against the run (50.4) and eighth-worst overall (48.0) while carrying a 45.2 pass-block grade.

Based on the current trend, it's hard to imagine Borom sticking around in the NFL much longer. Fifth-round picks don't always hit, but that doesn't excuse his rapid decline."

There's no question about the dropoff for Borom in his handful of seasons with the Chicago Bears, but it's now clear that the Bears don't have plans for him to play (barring injury, of course). It might not be a bad idea for Chicago to see what they can get for Borom in a trade as he's likely no better than the fourth or fifth tackle on the depth chart behind starters Braxton Jones and Darnell Wright, as well as 2024 third-round pick Kiran Amegadjie.

The end of the line in Chicago is likely coming for Borom, so the Bears don't really need to wait around on this one. They should get him to a new situation as quickly as possible.
