1. Greedy Williams, LSU 6-2, 182 (1)
Career Statistics: 71 tackles, 8 interceptions, 19 broken up passes
Why Greedy Williams Is Here On The List: Andraez – his real name – is a bit lanky and doesn’t quite look like a true No. 1 franchise corner, but that’s exactly what he is. His length, size, and ball skills form a fantastic combination that all works.
No, he’s not going to bring any thump whatsoever to help against the run, but he won’t get beaten up by the bigger receivers and has the skills to erase the smaller ones.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Just how quick is he? He’s not going to do anything when it comes to strength and physicality, but that’s not going to be his game. The difference between being a sure first-rounder and a must-have top ten overall pick is his raw athleticism. A great 40 time ends any concern and speculation.
Bottom Line: He’s not the perfect corner prospect, but he’ll be a key part of any secondary with the ability to shine on his own on an island. The talent, instincts, and ball skills are there, and there’s the upside to do a whole lot more.
