Halprin: The Cowboys are still searching for a defensive end that can be a force in the pass rush, something they really haven’t had since DeMarcus Ware left. Willis can possibly be the guy and is a real bargain at pick No. 60. Blessed with extreme athleticism, he blew the competition away at the NFL Scouting Combine. He’s a high-motor guy who has been durable, and on the college level he has produced — 8.5 sacks in 2015 and 11.5 sacks in 2016. Pro Football Focus had him with the second-most quarterback pressures in 2016, with 80. There are some questions about lack of pass rush creativity and stiff hips on making the bed around the edge, but overall Willis has a lot to like, and with some coaching by Rod Marinellli, has the tools to be special.
