PRO: The Titans selected Northwestern's Peter Skoronski with the 11th overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-4-inch, 313-pound offensive lineman brings outstanding technique, athleticism and physicality to his position. While he was a three-year starter at left tackle, he possesses the versatility to move inside to guard. A native of Park Ridge, Ill., Skoronski did not miss a game or a start in his three seasons at Northwestern, appearing in 33 contests at left tackle. Among all offensive linemen at the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine, he placed second in the vertical jump (34.50 inches), second in the broad jump (9 feet 7 inches), fifth in the bench press (30 reps) and ninth in the 10-yard split (1.75 seconds). He became Northwestern's highest draft selection since guard Chris Hinton went to Denver with the fourth pick in 1983, and he was the 11th player in program history to be picked in the first round.
• In 2022, Skoronski's third and final season at Northwestern, he became the first unanimous first-team All-American in program history after starting all 12 games at left tackle.
• His grandfather, Bob Skoronski, was a left tackle for the Green Bay Packers, playing nine total seasons with the franchise. He missed two seasons while serving in the U.S. Air Force. He was a permanent offensive captain for the Packers under Vince Lombardi from 1964 to 1968 and played on five NFL championship teams. In 1976, he was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame.
