Peter Skoronski entered the 2023 NFL Draft after an impressive 3-year career at Northwestern. He did not have to wait long to hear his name called.

With the No. 11 overall pick, the Tennessee Titans selected Skoronski. He will have a shot to cement a starting role out of the gate heading into the 2023 NFL season.

Skoronski originally joined Northwestern in the 2020 recruiting class as a 4-star prospect and made an immediate impact for the program. He started all 9 games of the COVID-shortened season as a true freshman.

In 3 seasons, Skoronski would start 33 games for the Wildcats, capped off with a historic 2022 season for the offensive lineman. He was a unanimous first-team All-American, the first in program history for the Wildcats, and was named a finalist for the 2022 Outland Trophy.

Skoronski’s durability is undeniably one of the biggest selling points for the offensive lineman entering the league. He also measured and performed well at the NFL Combine, checking in at 6-4 and 313 pounds while running a 5.16 40-yard dash and jumping 34.5″ in the vertical.

Those numbers were enough for Skoronski to generate an 83 athleticism score via NFL’s Next Gen Stats and an overall draft score of 88. He was one of the top overall prospects on the board per’s Daniel Jeremiah.

The big question for Skoronski in this draft has been which position he is best suited for at the NFL level. Despite playing tackle at an elite level in college, some analysts have projected Skoronski to have the biggest impact at guard in the NFL.

Even if his highest ceiling is playing on the inside in the NFL, Skoronski certainly has the ability to play at tackle if needed. We’ll see where he slots in to begin his career, but there’s no doubt he can have a productive career.
