Thankfully, no one sees Wills as a disaster.

This past week, we finished covering the offensive line position in our training camp previews. At the end of each preview, we include a poll to gauge fan feedback heading into the season.

In Part 1, we asked what fan expectations are for rookie left tackle Jedrick Wills. The good news? Only 1 person out of 581 votes thinks he will be a Cam Erving-like disaster. Whew! Besides that, the expectations are pretty spread out. 43% believe he’ll be above average right away, 37% think he’ll be about average, while 20% expect him to struggle at times.

Poll

How well do you think Jedrick Wills’ transition to left tackle will be for the first half of 2020?

    I’m expecting him to struggle in some spots — but not a disaster.

    A disaster. Cam Erving-like.

In Part 2, we asked who fans think the Browns’ starting right guard will be in Week 1. Wyatt Teller is the clear winner with 60% of the votes, followed by Drew Forbes are 28%, Chris Hubbard at 7%, and Nick Harris at 3%. I’m not surprised with the order of the vote, but I am surprised that Hubbard did not receive more votes. Fans may have soured on him too much after his performance at right tackle last year, but I think there will be a time in training camp where Hubbard gets his crack to run with the ones at right guard.

In Part 3, we asked who fans liked the most out of the remaining five offensive linemen on the roster. Once again, we had a clear winner as Alex Taylor received an impressive 66% of the votes (which I did kind of expect). Next up was Malcolm Pridgeon at 15%, probably because of his affiliation with the Buckeyes.
