BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded a variety of All-Conference and All-American honors since his junior campaign. Senior totals were 137/11.5/3 after 128/9.5/3 as a junior. Sophomore numbers were 70/11/5 when he was a reserve.
POSITIVES: Fierce, run-defending linebacker who is best in the box. Fires up the field, plays with great suddenness and flashes on the scene. Plays heads-up football and takes good angles to the play. Possesses a thick, strong build and defeats blocks.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top lateral range, struggles in coverage and does not possess a quick break to the throw.
ANALYSIS: An athletic linebacker best defending the run, Willis is a competitive prospect who possesses the skills to start at the next level.
