3. OT Jedrick Wills – No. 71

  • Drafted: Round 1, Pick 10

  • 2020 Stats: 15 games started
  • 2021 PFF: 65.9

Jedrick Wills is a guy who frankly is going to be evaluated on two different scales. The first scale is just pure play. How is he on a day-to-day level? The second is how does he stack up as a 10th pick in the draft.

As a regular left tackle, he’s been fine. No reason to worry about him long-term, and while he’s the worst of the starting five Cleveland Browns starters, that’s not exactly an insult, as three of them are All-Pros (Jack Conklin, Wyatt Teller, and Joel Bitonio) and the fourth (J.C. Tretter) should be a regular Pro Bowler with how good he is. So the fact that he’s not on their level isn’t a bad thing. He’s in no danger of losing his spot.

Now, as far as him as the 10th pick in the draft? It’s fair to say he’s a disappointment. The Browns could’ve taken Tristan Wirfs, who went to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers three picks later and has been on a path to the Hall of Fame ever since.

Wills is a starter, but he’s no Pro Bowler, nor is he on a Hall of Fame track. This is made even worse when you realize that Ezra Cleveland, taken in the second round, is outpacing Wills as well. So while yes, Wills is set as the Cleveland Browns’ left tackle, he’s far from an elite player.
