2022 will be about consistency for Skoronski, who has had flashes of brilliance but also plenty of struggles during his time at Northwestern. Let’s start with the good things. Skoronski is a very athletic tackle. He has no problem moving out into space and keeping up with twitchy pass rushers, and stays light on his feet through every rep. Skoronski is only average in pass protection, with most of his struggles coming against more powerful pass rushers. For example, against Purdue in 2021, he really had his hands full with George Karlaftis, who has heavy and powerful hands that can really knock you back if you are unprepared. Skoronski’s struggle with power feels like it is a mixture of having weak hips and also not being able to initiate first contact on a consistent base. He lets rushers get to his chest and dictate what they are going to do. Run blocking is also a weak point, as he struggles with staying connected to the man he is responsible for. He’ll also occasionally block his man into the running lane. There is a lot for Skoronski to work on in his third year for him to be considered a top draft pick in my eyes. As of now I have a day three grade on him with the hope that he can propel himself into day two with a solid year. I personally think there is a chance he stays for his senior year.
