Pro Fooball Focus released their second mock ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft following Super Bowl LIV. In it, there's a doozy of a trade.
The Dolphins jump ahead of the Giants, and in the process, potentially do the G-men a favor.
In order to snag quarterback Tua Tagovailoa from Alabama, the Dolphins moved into the third pick in a trade with the Lions. Good news: The Giants don't need a quarterback with Daniel Jones under center.
That trade prediction from the football analytics outlet allows the Giants to have the pick of the litter among offensive line prospects. The selection for the Giants is then one of Tagovailoa's teammates, Jedrick Wills.
Here's how PFF explains the pick:
"Wills is the most athletic tackle in a very athletic tackle class. He is a work in progress still in pass protection, but the strides he made toward the end of 2019 - when he allowed only four pressures over Alabama's final six games - have us encouraged."
According to PFF, Wills allowed only one sack and 14 QB pressures in 450 pass-blocking snaps last season. He also made huge improvements as a run blocker, as his grade in the run game jumped from a 63.1 in 2018 to 91.4 this past season.
Wills was a two-year starter for the powerhouse that Alabama is, but the big question on him is whether or not he can play on the left side of the offensive line. At Alabama, he exclusively played on the right side. The Giants might rather have their top pick protecting Jones' blindside, so the 6-foot-5, 320-pound lineman might have to prove he can transition to the other side of the line.
