I find mockdraftable to be a pretty useless site. So many guys don't do various tests that the information is so full of holes that any takeaways are basically pointless. Having said that, both lists are mostly interior guys.Johnson makes me nervous that high. He feels like a top-20 pick, and not a top-10 to me. There is a lot of upside, but he's gonna struggle as a rookie, he's pretty raw, and was only a 1-year tackle at Ohio State. I just think he's a reach, and honestly OL is such a small need for the Bears.How odd 'cuz I was coming here to post that I hope we get Johnson. He is a beast, perennial Pro Bowl type of tackle from what I've read and heard. Truth is there's holes everywhere and with Johnson being a generational talent, why not secure one for an incredibly important position?Chicago Bears
Don't take Paris Johnson at #9 is probably my first choice. Honestly, I don't really want to take an OL until day 3. Its not that big of a need. DL, CB, RB are the positions I'd want to address in the draft.
On the flip side, Northwestern coaches said he's a better player than Rashawn Slater was. Ironically, Slater had similar arm length questions.On the radio yesterday an analyst was breaking down his game and believed the Tyrannosaurus rex arms were going to be a significant issue against elite pass rushers.What don't you like about Skoronski? I ask because he's BY FAR the #1 OL on my board. Is it the arm length?Players I want the Eagles to take in the 1st: Jalen Carter, Nolan Smith, Broderick Jones
Players I don't want the Eagles to take in the 1st: Peter Skoronski
Players I wouldn't care if they took: Bijan Robinson, Brian Branch, Lucas Van Ness, Paris Johnson, any of the cornerbacks
Honestly, as long as they don't take Skoronski, I don't care who they take. I wouldn't even care if they took Smith-Njigba.
I forget who it was, but he made a pretty strong case.
Slater may have arm length issues, but his athletic numbers are elite in almost every category.
Like I said, Skoronski projects as a guard in the NFL. I don't think he'll be very good as a tackle.
Skoronski's probably the best athlete among OL of the 1st rounders in this class. He crushed bench, broad, vertical. His only below average testing is arm length and height. I won't disagree that Johnson and Jones may have higher ceilings due to their size, but I have a hard time seeing Skoronski not being a good T, or an elite G.
Just me maybe, but I think Skoronski is a top-5 player in this draft. Would love him in Seattle as a Walker owner.
