Willis was very productive at Kansas State, posting 114 tackles, an amazing 40.5 for loss, and an impressive 26.0 sacks. He is a nice tall edge rusher, he gets great pressure on the quarterback, he is a great pass rusher, he is a disruptive player, and he is a defensive play maker. He is also a sure fire tackler. He does not have the best speed, but that does not hurt his game, and he is a bit on the light side. With that said, I expect Willis to end up being a day 2 pick, likely in the mid 2nd round, to early 3rd round area.
