2019 #46 Cleveland Browns - Greedy Williams - CB, LSU
NFL Draft Scout
OUTLOOK: LSU's reputation as DBU was only enhanced in 2018 with future first round picks Williams and safety Grant Delpit living up to the standard established in the past by superstars Patrick Peterson, Tre'Davious White and Jamal Adams, among many others. A First Team All-SEC selection and one of three finalists for the Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive back in 2018. Led the SEC with 17 passes defensed and six interceptions as a redshirt freshman before watching his numbers plummet (nine passes defended and two interceptions) as opponents wisely opted to ignore his side of the field. While Williams' combination of size, speed and ball skills are tantalizing, he is not for everyone, showing more of a cover corner mentality against the run than scouts would prefer. Long, lanky press corners have never been more popular than today and Williams is as talented as they come, though there remain plenty of questions about his willingness to mix it up in the running game. Williams' exceptional upside warrants top 15 consideration but there is some bust potential here, as well.
