2. Jedrick Wills struggled some
Injuries aside, this wasn’t the best practice for the Browns so far during the 2020 training camp. Jake Trotter of ESPN pointed as much out when he simply said it was “not a sharp practice.” He also said rookie left tackle Jedrick Wills didn’t have his best outing as he was taken out following a false start when he was trying to go against Olivier Vernon.
"“This was not a sharp practice. Rookie LT Jedrick Wills Jr. got yanked briefly for a false start facing off against Olivier Vernon. J’Mon Moore dropped a point-blank TD from Case Keenum in the red zone.” — Trotter via Twitter"
This wasn’t the first time Wills was pointed out for struggling but there’s still no reason to be concerned. Cleveland’s No. 10 overall pick has as much talent as any tackle in the NFL but he’s moving from the right to the left side which is a huge adjustment. He’s also doing so without the help of offseason training activities of rookie mini-camps due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
That’s without even considering the jump in level of talent he’s facing going from the NCAA to the NFL. On another note, the J’Mon Moore drop isn’t great but the good news there was the solid pass from Case Keenum, who also has had his own issues in camp.
In the end, the struggles aren’t too alarming — it’s still early and it will come together.
