Strengths

Long, speedy perimeter corner with great ball skills. Very competitive and intelligent in coverage. Can read the quarterback’s eyes and accelerate to undercut routes. Comfortable in press coverage. Effectively strikes at the snap to get receivers off the route. Range allows him to successfully patrol with a backpedal in cover-3 or cover-4. Has experience playing both sides of the formation. Attacks and comes away with the ball. Length should allow him to match up with tight ends on the perimeter. Will tackle if he can size an opponent up. Can be deceptive as a blitzer from the outside.

 

Weaknesses

More of a straight-line athlete than side-to-side mover. Might not have the quickness to consistently mirror in man-to-man coverage. Allows too much separation on in-breaking routes. Gives up too much ground on comebacks and curls. Thin frame. Mostly an ankle tackler. Likely shouldn’t be used in the slot.

 

NFL comparison

Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie – Tall, rangy corners with 4.3 speed like Rodgers-Cromartie (who ran a 4.29) are obviously very rare, but Greedy Williams is one of them, and the two have similar ball-hawking tendencies on the perimeter.

 

Conclusion

Overall, Greedy Williams is an opportunistic cornerback that is at his best is press-man coverage, but he could also thrive playing in a zone-heavy scheme that allows him to range with his eyes on the quarterback. I think the tools make Williams worth a first-round pick.

I thought Greedy would be top 10 but I have some concerns after the combine.
