The Cleveland Browns are still early in their 2021 training camp but these three offensive players are already turning heads with their play
There’s a lot to be excited about with the Cleveland Browns this season since they’re coming back from an 11-5 campaign that ended in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
It was a great season and feels like only the beginning since their roster is not only loaded, but it’s incredibly young — and they’ve even locked up one of their biggest stars.
Now we check in with the team as they get rolling in their 2021 training camp and identify three standouts on the offensive side of the ball.
3. Jedrick Wills, Left Tackle
When Andrew Berry took over as the general manager last season, he focused heavily on the offensive line. He knew they needed to address both tackle positions and did so by signing Jack Conklin in free agency and then drafted Jedrick Wills at No. 10 overall.
The results were fantastic as the Browns went from one of the worst offensive lines in the league to one of the best. And they can get even better, especially if Wills can take his next step as a pro.
And according to Joel Bitonio, their starting left guard, that should happen. Speaking about Wills, Bitonio said he could be in the “upper echelon” at the position and praised his work in this camp.
"“He is going to try to do everything possible to put us in the best position to win,” Bitonio said last training camp, when his interactions with Wills were only limited to Zoom calls. “That’s really all you can ask from a rookie. He’s dialed in.” — Anthony Poisal & Andrew Gribble, ClevelandBrowns.com"
Wills played right tackle at Alabama and had to make the move to left tackle as a rookie. With a full season at the position under his belt, he should start to look even more comfortable and Bitonio is already seeing that.
