Four ways the selection of Alabama tackle Jedrick Wills impacts the Cleveland Browns heading into the 2020 season.

The Cleveland Browns think they found their puzzle piece at left tackle, by picking Alabama tackle Jedrick Wills with the 10th pick.

Here’s four ways Wills will impact the Browns moving forward in 2020.

1. Conklin move valuable than ever

Jack Conklin is being billed as a right tackle, but if question marks start surrounding the switch of Jedrick Wills from right tackle to left, the Browns may have to consider moving their prized free agent to Baker Mayfield‘s blind side.

Wills was an elite college talent, protecting the blind side of Tua Tagovaoila– a left handed quarterback–at Alabama.

Wills allowed just four pressures in his final six games at Alabama, while allowing just one pressure in his career against Power-5 opponents.

Now, I won’t pretend to be a left tackle expert. That said, if switching from the right to left side–and doing it well–was easy, it’d be done more often. Usually, right tackle is where players go when they can’t make it at left tackle. That said, there was the aforementioned point about Tua being left-handed, so we’ll just have to see what happens.

There’s no indication that Conklin is going to play at left, but anything and everything has to be on the table as the Browns are under pressure to win with Mayfield on his rookie contract.
