2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama

Career Snapshot
A two-year starter at right tackle. Earned First Team All-SEC honors as a junior in 2019.

Positives
Large, strong college right tackle who plays with a nasty and violent disposition. Quickly sets up off the snap, immediately gets his hands into opponents and stays square. Sets with a wide base and controls defenders once engaged at the point. Dominant run blocker who shows great power, easily turns defenders from the line and works to bury them. Anchors in pass protection. Easily outpositions opponents from the action. Shows the ability to recover and jars defenders with violent hand punch.

Negatives
Not a natural knee bender and must sink his butt better at the line of scrimmage. Bends at the waist and overextends into blocks. Shows some stiffness and lacks fluidity and quickness to the second level. Character issues have raised red flags.

Analysis
Wills is a dominant right-tackle prospect who is an overwhelming force when he blocks with proper fundamentals. While he’s highly considered in many quarters, I see him solely as a right tackle at the next level with no potential to move to the left side. Wills will have a productive career at the next level if he keeps his focus on football, but he’s no sure thing.
