Peter Skoronski - NFL Mock Draft Roundup

Leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will track where Northwestern Wildcats offensive lineman Peter Skoronski appears in the latest NFL mock drafts.

Peter Skoronski NFL Mock Drafts

Here are some of the latest mock drafts in which Peter Skoronski has appeared:

The Draft Network - Marino

TRADE - 9th overall, Chicago Bears

The trade-back for the Chicago Bears provides them with a significant influx of resources and puts them in a more appropriate range to select an offensive lineman. Peter Skoronski is a technician with good mobility and coordination. A college left tackle, Skoronski could kick inside to guard and help the Bears get their best five blockers on the field for Justin Fields.

CBS Sports - Edwards

7th overall, Las Vegas Raiders

Las Vegas has a hole to fill along its offensive line. Peter Skoronski has flexibility to play multiple positions. If right tackle does not work out, then the team should have no problem sliding him inside to guard.

Walter Football

11th overall, Tennessee Titans

Taylor Lewan is a 32-year-old coming off a knee injury. He's also due $14.8 million next season in what happens to be his contract year. I imagine the Titans will want to find help with their poor blocking.

Peter Skoronski is an athletic tackle who has kept his quarterback clean. He can play center as well.

College Football News

7th overall, Las Vegas Raiders

This is making one massive assumption — a 12 is going to be the new Raider quarterback. Whether it's Brady or Rodgers, the guess is that Vegas will find an insta-fit passer and draft the star tackle to rebuild the front.

CBS Sports - Trapasso

11th overall, Tennessee Titans

The Titans want to control the line of scrimmage and had problems doing that this season. Skoronski is one of the safer prospects in this class.

Athlon Sports - Fischer

11th overall, Tennessee Titans

Skoronski is going to be a heavily debated prospect given his arm length, but he's a plug-and-play guy right away at either guard or tackle the way he's so technically sound. The Titans have lost a little bit up front and could see some departures along the line, but this pick takes care of that in a big way.

Pro Football Network - Fragoza

11th overall, Tennessee Titans

Tennessee's offense is built around Derrick Henry and the ground game. And with Taylor Lewan missing more games in 2022, his health has become a serious concern. Even if Lewan returns to 100% next year, Peter Skoronski can fill a void inside while serving as an effective swing tackle.

The Athletic - Baumgardner

TRADE - 9th overall, Houston Texans

Dane had Carolina moving up for Stroud and, perhaps, that's true north for the Panthers: whatever it takes to get a starting QB. If that's not possible or doesn't come to pass, the next item on the agenda might be receiver. In this draft, No. 9 could be too high to address that position.

So, instead, Carolina trades back here and Houston moves up for Skoronski, who can play guard and tackle and probably do so for a really long time in front of Young. And the Texans still would have a bucket of picks left.

SB Nation - Schofield

7th overall, Las Vegas Raiders

The battle for OT1 will be fascinating to watch this draft season. Northwestern's Peter Skoronski fascinates me, as he showcases the technique, and the varied approach, that will serve him well in the NFL. He mixes up his pass sets, keeping rushers on their toes when coming off the ball.

However, as we see each cycle, there is already a question of whether he would be better suited to playing guard in the NFL.

He looks like a tackle to me.

As for why the Raiders would draft a tackle? Well, someone has to block for Tom Brady ...

CBS Sports - Wilson

14th overall, New England Patriots

Peter Skoronski is solid and consistent, which are two of the best things you can say about an offensive lineman. The biggest issue he'll face during the pre-draft process will be arm length and whether his NFL future is at tackle or guard. - O'Hara

8th overall, Atlanta Falcons

They were in the NFC South race at 5-6 but four straight losses knocked them out. They scored just 56 points in those four games. They're looking for help up front.

The 33rd Team

27th overall, Dallas Cowboys

Skoronski has position flexibility and will make the Cowboys tougher and stronger up front to help in both the run and pass game. This would mark the second consecutive season Dallas selected an offensive lineman in the first round of the NFL Draft.


13th overall, New York Jets

The Jets will be whacked pretty hard with free agent losses in March when existing contracts all expire. A glance at the FA table shows a significant percentage of 2022 snaps all hitting the streets:
  • Offensive Line - loses starters Connor McGovern, George Fant, Nate Herbig, along with key reserves Dan Feeney, Mike Remmers and Cedric Ogbuehi. This is without mentioning Mekhi Becton's complete lack of contribution in his two seasons.
  • Defensive Line - Solomon Thomas, Sheldon Rankins and Nathan Shepherd will seek new employment.
  • Linebacker - Kwon Alexander and Quincey Williams leave with significant starting snaps, leaving an aging (and expensive) $17M man CJ Mosley looking for help.
  • Safety - Lamarcus Joyner departs in March, but the rest of the gang (Jordan Whitehead, Will Parks, Ashtyn Davis) have just one year remaining.
Defensive minded HC Robert Saleh may very well veer toward the defense with this pick, but how can you ignore the offensive line vacancies? And there's still the issue at QB, though it's most probable that a veteran such as Derek Carr or Jimmy G will be heavily targeted.

ESPN - Kiper

7th overall, Las Vegas Raiders

The Raiders are a team to watch for a trade up for a quarterback, but they also might prefer a veteran -- Tom Brady? -- over a rookie to take over for Derek Carr in 2023. This is a veteran roster that could compete in the AFC West with the right guy under center. That guy also needs help along the offensive line, though; only left tackle Kolton Miller's starting spot should be guaranteed going forward. Skoronski, who started 33 games at left tackle for the Wildcats, could move to guard or right tackle at the next level. He allowed just one sack in 2022. He'd be an instant starter for a new-look offense.
