OG/OT · Northwestern
Summary: This imposing beast of a man was an obvious star when he started during his true freshman season, 33 games ago. His dimensions aren't prototypical at tackle — with arms only 32 1/4 inches — and some believe he may serve best at guard, where he probably would be an instant starter in the NFL. Still, his physicality and advanced technique demand he gets on the field someplace.
FRANKLY: Skoronski is a stud. Draft him and worry about what position he plays later. He will yield excellent ROI as a top-ten pick.
