Jedrick Wills Jr. describes blocking for both Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts
Alabama has had a pair of extremely talented quarterbacks the past few seasons — Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa.
It’s not easy for an offensive lineman to have one righty and one lefty to block for, but Wills made it work and enters the 2020 NFL Draft as a near-lock to be a top-15 pick.
On Monday, he joined the “Rich Eisen Show” and spoke about what it was like to block for that talented duo:
Of particular interest was Wills’ praise of former Hurts, who spent the 2019 season at Oklahoma:
“Jalen was a leader since Day 1 … I feel like he was always the guy. Even after Tua went in and did what he did (in the title game against Georgia), and ended up taking the starting job, Jalen was still a leader,” Wills said. “He was still there day in and day out improving his game, trying to be a better quarterback. He never once changed his personality.”
Those are 2 very talented quarterbacks Wills has blocked for. We’ll see who he blocks for in the NFL.
