Alabama offensive lineman Jedrick Wills was a friendly guy today on the set of PFT Live, but that’s because he didn’t have a helmet and shoulder pads on.
Wills said at the Scouting Combine that he thinks NFL teams who meet him in Indianapolis will see that he’s easy-going in interviews, and then they’ll watch his tape and see how tough he can be between the lines.
“You’ve got to be aggressive. You’ve got to have a mean streak in you to play offensive line. That’s something I feel like I have,” Wills said. “As a human being that’s not my personality, I’m not like a super-aggressive person. Some people would describe me as a teddy bear. But when it’s time to go it’s time to go.”
Wills is viewed as a potential Top 5 pick in the draft, and arguably the best offensive lineman available. NFL teams like a good person with a mean attitude.
