With the 10th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns select offensive tackle Jedrick Wills, Alabama.

Wills is generally considered the top offensive tackle in this year’s class among the staff here at The Draft Network. His pass protection skills and aggressive demeanor pair well with high-end mobility and should allow him to thrive in Cleveland’s new-look offense. Wills will bring plenty of attitude along with free-agent signee Jack Conklin. Both will help transform Cleveland’s offensive line from one of the biggest weaknesses into one of its biggest strengths. 

Wills has played on the right side but his skillset is viable to play on either side of the line of scrimmage. Look for Wills to command a starting role from the jump as the Browns look to stabilize the supporting cast around young quarterback Baker Mayfield. 

Our scouts say: “Willis is a plug-and-play Pro Bowl-caliber offensive tackle in the NFL. Wills has surreal ability as a pass protector; he's violent, controlled, smooth and smart. Wills plays with a chip on his shoulder and brings the kind of attitude adjustment up front that can make wakes and change the demeanor of an offensive line. Supremely gifted, Wills is especially attractive to teams that push the ball vertically, as his movement skills allow him to shine on an island in pass protection. STUD.”
