Greedy Williams, Louisiana State
While Greedy Williams may not be strong or physical on the outside he is athletic, and long does not even begin to describe his physique. Williams was considered the best cornerback in this year’s draft class for most of the season, but has seen his stock take a bit of a tumble over the last month.
Only starting two years at Louisiana State, Williams still managed to record eight interceptions and 19 pass break ups in that span. The concern with Williams is not his ability to play the receiver and make great plays on the football, but at the consistency and effort level he puts forth on every play. There are also concerns about Williams’ willingness and ability to make tackles in the open field.
Measuring in at nearly 6’2 and 185 pounds, Williams ran a blazing 4.37 second 40 yard dash at the combine. This would be the only test Williams would perform as he pulled up limp after his one and only attempt at the 40 yard dash in Indianapolis. At his pro day, Williams hit 36 inches on his vertical jump, 10’4 on his broad jump, but was only able to muster eight reps on the bench press.
Williams has all of the potential in the world, but is he willing to put in the work and effort necessary to succeed at the NFL level? If the Buccaneers select him with the 39th pick, they would take LSU teammates in the first two rounds in the draft.
