Bio: 
Three-year starter who made 30 tackles (three for loss) with 1.5 sacks as a senior. Recorded 22 tackles (4.5 for loss) and two sacks in 2016. Posted 26 tackles (3.5 for loss) and one sack as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Explosive, wide-bodied defensive lineman who plays with outstanding leverage. Keeps his pads low to the ground, moves well for a big man and gets down the line of scrimmage and outside the box to make plays on the ball carrier. Shows power, keeps his feet moving and gets a lot of momentum going up the field. Attracts double-team blocks in the middle of the line.
Neg: 
Lacks great first-step quickness and shows average explosion. Easily knocked from his angle of attack. Not much of a playmaker.
Analysis: 
Willis was a terrific gap occupier at the college level but lacks the overall size and quickness to play in the NFL.
