    <<< At 58 he would be a steal!

    I would have a hard time passing on him.
    Depends on what's left on the board though.

    I've been trumpeting for Willis for some time now. Get a 3tech that can alter the DL will make this defense even better.

    I’m a big fan...I think he’s pretty raw and needs some technique work but he produced in spite of that in 18 and you can see the burst on film.

    Like you said - you also see him hold up against double and triple teams so he’s got some power.

    I, too, am a big fan. We need upgrades on our DTs more than DE. Depends on what we did in FA. Someone like Darius Philon, if not resigned by the Chargers could also Help out or DL, though not too flashy I admit.

    this guy has a high ceiling...has great interior moves...he's nasty,mean and has high motor. GREAT INSTINCTS TO GET TO THE BALL. Reminds me of a bigger La Roi Glover and or John Randle. Leon Lett and Granny Marinelli would fall in love with this player. Little bit raw, but lots of tools in the shed.

    He's similar to a Maliek Collins but with more power, and much more effective against the run a as a prospect.

    Top 5 IDL in run stop percentage
    41 Stop
    28 Pressures

    All of this with poor technique...get Marinelli on this dude and look out.

    I like the player.

    Two observations:
    1. Why does the narrator show/rewind plays where the OL didn't block him?

    2. The player is easy for me to predict in terms of what move he is going to make (i.e. Shoot the gap, stay back anticipating run, be the 1st guy on a stunt, be the 2nd guy on a stunt that ties of blockers for the other guy).

    He was dismissed from the Gators for off field issues.

    His brother is Landon Collins......and I know its tough to look at siblings to get a understanding of how they will do in the pros....but Landon seems like a good guy with a good head on his shoulders. Willis may be on his way to doing the same.
