By far the best selection by the Cleveland Browns in 2020, Jedrick Wills addressed Cleveland’s biggest need, but he was also arguably the top player at his position. When the Browns saw Wills was still on the board, they quickly turned in their selection knowing he was the guy to be their franchise left tackle.
Offensive line was the biggest problem with Cleveland’s offense last season, as they did not give Baker Mayfield enough time to go through his reads and complete passes. The amount of pressure allowed by the tackles forced Mayfield to be gun-shy in the pocket, causing him to scramble often, even if he was not under pressure.
With the signing of Jack Conklin in free agency and the selection of Wills, the Browns now have bookend tackles who will help keep Mayfield upright. Both Conklin and Wills are also elite run blockers who can both move incredibly well, making them perfect fits in Stefanski’s zone run scheme.
The only concern about Wills is if he can successfully make the transition from right tackle to left tackle. However, with the help of Browns offensive line coach Bill Callahan, the move should not be an issue for Wills.
Wills is a perfect fit in Cleveland’s offense and fills a huge need knowing they need to keep Mayfield upright. The Browns being able to stick at No. 10 and getting arguably the best offensive tackle in the draft class makes Wills the best pick of the Browns 2020 Draft.
