After a massively disappointing 2019 season, the Cleveland Browns realized that their lackluster offensive line was a huge part of the problem. After addressing the right tackle spot in free agency with the signing of Jack Conklin, they sured up the left tackle spot in the NFL Draft with Jedrick Wills Jr. out of Alabama.

While Wills played right tackle primarily in college, Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt not only isn't concerned about the move, he think Wills will thrive there.

In a recent Zoom session with the media, Van Pelt spoke about Wills, saying:

"Jed going over to the left side, I think the sky’s the limit for him. Expect him to be a left tackle for a long time in this league for the Browns. We’re excited to have him."

You have to be thrilled as a Browns fan that the offensive coordinator has this much confidence in the rookie before he has even taken the field.
