Willis is a sure tackler who can make plays in space. He excels as an edge rusher — when he blitzes, opposing quarterbacks don't have long before he finds them — but he also has the speed and athleticism to drop into coverage and has even lined up at safety for his high school team. His pass coverage technique is a work in progress though.
