Jedrick Wills Jr., OT, Alabama

  • 40-Yard Dash– 5.05 (Tied for 6th)
  • Vertical Jump– 34.5 inches (2nd)
  • Broad Jump– 113 inches (Tied for 6th)
  • 20-Yard Shuttle– 4.84 (14th)

Jedrick Wills Jr. also put together a solid Combine, finishing in the top six in three of the four drills. He showed off his great footwork and power in the on-field drills and cemented himself as one of the top tackles in the class.

However, his performance was overshadowed by the athleticism of Mekhi Becton and Tristan Wirfs. Even though he may be falling down draft boards because of the rise of Becton and Wirfs, Wills should still be a top ten pick in the draft. His athleticism, power, footwork and size were put on display at the combine and he would be a great addition to any offensive line.

Zierlein gives Wills a grade of 6.89, which says he will be a year one quality starter. His prospect grade is higher than Becton (6.49) and Wirfs (6.46).

Combine numbers for Jedrick Wills:

— 5.05 in the 40 (tied for sixth-best among offensive linemen)— 34.5-inch vertical jump (second-best among O-linemen)— 113-inch broad jump (tied for sixth-best among O-linemen) pic.twitter.com/DBgk1zWjAV
