Wills is an elite prospect in my eyes. The first thing that I fell in love with in Wills was his consistency as a pass blocker and in his pass sets. He almost never allowed a pass rush and mirrored the pass rusher very well. That, along with his strong punch and base, makes him a very effective tackle. It was very refreshing to see how good he was with his hands after watching a handful of tackles that consistently lost hand fights. He always gets his hands inside and continues to work from there. Playing on the right side, he’s also a mauler in the run game, good luck to any player he down blocks on because you’re going for a ride. He has potential to move inside, but playing tackle will be his best spot and most valuable.
Don’t get me wrong, Wills is a good athlete, but nothing crazy like some other tackles in the class so that is something I’ll put for cons after trying very hard to find one. Also, can he play left tackle? Pretty clean prospect overall though and it’s tough to find many cons.

Wills is everything teams are looking for in an offensive tackle and should demand a top 10 pick. In my opinion, he is the best tackle in this class because of his consistency as a pass blocker and ability as a mauler in the run game. He absolutely stalemates rushers at the point of attack and gives no almost no ground because of his excellent anchor. Wills is a guy you slot in at tackle for 10+ years without any concern.
