BEREA, Ohio — On the clock for the first time in the 2020 NFL Draft, Andrew Berry and the Cleveland Browns have selected Jedrick Wills with the 10th overall pick in the first round.

Wills is a right tackle out of Alabama. The Browns will look to transition him to left tackle to fill the hole at the position.

The Crimson Tide's starting right tackle allowed only one sack last season and only missed seven assignments in his 771 snaps as part of an offensive line that ranked third nationally.

Blocking for left-handed quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, Wills is no stranger to blind side protection.

This was the first time the Browns had held a No. 10 draft pick since 1961.
