Alabama in the Pros

Jedrick Wills shows off his swaggy, iced out new chain

We have a new drip king in the National Football League. 

He was not playing around when it came to protecting quarterbacks and establishing a rushing attack at Alabama, and Jedrick Wills does not play in the jewelry game either.

As the No. 10 overall pick of this year’s NFL Draft to the Cleveland Browns, Wills decided to spoil himself with an iced out bear chain.

Since he has to deal with the cold temperatures in Cleveland come football season, he’s prepared for it with his new piece. Wills started 29 games at right tackle for the Crimson Tide in his career.

A four-star in the 2017 signing class, he was on a College Football Playoff National Championship team and a Southeastern Conference title squad. 

The 6-foot-4, 312-pounder allowed just one sack in 2018, helping Tua Tagovailoa become the fourth 3,000-yard quarterback (3,966) of the Nick Saban era. He set Alabama’s single-season school record for passing yards, touchdown passes (43) and total scores (48) that year while earning All-American honors and being a Heisman finalist. Wills also cleared the way for two 1,000-yard running backs – Damien Harris, Najee Harris – in his three seasons with the Tide.

While some people considered his first purchase to be unwise, the Kentucky native even had a response to that on social media. He left the University of Alabama with 3.45 grade point average in finance and in his mind, he knows that he will make the right decisions in providing for his family.

With his new ice, Wills is prepared to be the coldest offensive tackle in the NFL.
