Pos: 
Explosive interior defensive tackle who comes off a terrific season. Quick, fires off the snap with a great first step and displays good change of direction. Pursues outside the box to chase the action and plays with proper pad level and fluid lateral movement skills. Displays a good head for the ball, goes very hard and consistently draws the focus of opponents. Effectively fights with his hands to protect himself and defeat blocks. Flashes pass-rush skill.
Neg: 
Lacks power. Easily controlled at the point of attack by a single blocker and struggles to make plays if he doesn’t get the first step on opponents.
Analysis: 
Willis comes off a terrific season and went from street free agent to potential second-day pick. He has scheme limitations and is best suited for the three-technique spot, but his quickness and intensity are appealing.
