With the 10th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns have selected Jedrick Wills, Jr., an offensive tackle out of the University of Alabama.
Universally regarded as the best pass blocker in the draft, Wills was selected ahead of Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs and Louisville’s Mekhi Becton. He will replace Chris Hubbard opposite newcomer Jack Conklin on a revitalized offensive line that now looks more like a strength than a weakness.

There are better technical run blockers available in this draft than Wills, but the Browns’ new brass seems to still be all in on Baker Mayfield, 2018’s number one overall pick. Wills is yet to play at left tackle, protecting new Dolphins’ QB Tua Tagovailoa’s blind side while at Alabama. One of him or Conklin will have to transition to left tackle to protect Mayfield’s blind side for the Browns this year.
