Player No. 2 – Jedrick Wills, Jr., Offensive Tackle

I hate to say that the Cleveland Browns have gotten nothing out of Jedrick Wills this season, but he continues to be a huge disappointment given he was a top-10 pick just three years ago. What’s more concerning about Wills, is that Bill Callahan hasn’t even been able to coach him up this season.

Remember, the Browns lost Nick Harris on one of the first snaps of the season. Ethan Pocic who had no business starting on this team has filled in at center and played at an elite level. Part of that is extremely hard work by Pocic, but another huge factor is just how elite Callahan is as an offensive line coach.

Another prime example is James Hudson who looked miserable at times last season. In just one full offseason with Callahan, I’m now convinced that Hudson will be ready to replace Jack Conklin next season who will likely be too expensive to resign.

Wills is as good as they come in the run-blocking game. He moves well and is extremely athletic when asked to pull.  He also has the ability to hit moving targets when in the open field. The big issue is the pass blocking. He never seems quick enough for the speed rushers, and constantly gets bull rushed and collapses the pocket.

I’m not ready to give up on Wills just quite yet, but I wonder if this team will consider moving him to right tackle (where he played in college) and give Hudson a shot on the blind side.
