It’s official Cleveland Browns fans, the best tackle in the draft fell into the laps of new general manager Andrew Berry and new head coach Kevin Stefanski. What’s next?
First, the offensive line is now set for the Cleveland Browns with the selection of Jedrick Wills Jr. Those of you worrying about right guard, don’t. There is plenty of talent on this team to fill that spot and mesh with the offensive line. Left tackle was the last hole on the offense that had not been addressed and with that void being filled, it’s open season on defense the rest of the draft.
Jedrick Wills Jr. What can be said about this animal? A man who stood out in other players’ film. While watching film looking for the new tackle for the Browns, Wills stood out while watching film for the left tackle for Alabama. The man demands attention while dominating his opponent. This pick should keep fans happy, even with the switch from right tackle to left. Wills is talented enough to make the jump.
Now, who’s next? Does Berry draft a safety at No. 41? That would be a smart move and sure up a sore spot on the defense. Letting Joe Schobert walk away for no reason hurts the defense. Linebacker talent will be available all across day two of the draft for the Cleveland Browns.

Look for the Cleveland Browns to take a safety, linebacker, and a wide receiver on day two of the draft. All three positions need starters or depth. Linebacker is a hurting weak spot, but talent will be available in round three.
Safety should look to be addressed in the second round at No. 41. Antoine Winfield Jr. out of Minnesota would be a solid option for this defense and would help sure up the back end of the defense. However there are others who would prefer Jeremy Chinn out of Southern Illinois and believe he would be a better choice.
Either of these young men would bring value to this defense, day one, and help this team win games in 2020.
