Football fans in Cleveland were already elated with the team’s 2019 draft class when the team traded its first-round pick for Odell Beckham Jr. Now everyone in the city has another reason to celebrate with potentially one of the biggest steals in the draft.

The Pick: The Browns didn’t hesitate when LSU cornerback Greedy Williams sat right in front of them for the 46th overall pick, getting their pick in quickly.

The Player: Williams starred as a shutdown cornerback in LSU’s secondary throughout his career and was at one point considered a top-15 talent



  • The 21-year-old cornerback drew extremely high marks for his athleticism, size and skills as a cover corner.
  • Draft analysts and scouts knocked Williams for his lack of physical strength, poor tackling technique and spotty desire to make tackles.

The Fit: In terms of landing spot, it doesn’t get much better for both Williams and the Browns.

  • Williams can work opposite of Denzel Ward, Cleveland’s top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and a rising star in the NFL.
  • Cleveland’s defensive coordinator Steve Wilks can provide an excellent coaching presence, get the most out of Williams’ potential.
