Greedy Williams Scouting Report

What I Like:

Recovery and Attack

Greedy Williams displays so much of what I love about him on this play. He displays a stellar ability to recover off the line of scrimmage. Shows an excellent ability to process at the play and attack at the point of catch. I’d like to see Williams play for physical at the point of attack, but he did a nice job of disrupting the receiver.

 

What I Dislike:

Breakdown of Mechanics

This is just an overall bad effort from Greedy Williams. The receiver runs a curl route, which Williams misses, and also commits an unnecessary penalty. Overall, I’d just like to see more discipline on this play.

 

Tight Coverage

This play is also from the Auburn game, but displays Greedy Williams’ tight coverage ability really well. Williams displays excellent ability to show patience on the route and time his attack on the ball really well. Greedy Williams is typically lined up on the outside and covering receivers downfield, but really displays his range on this play.

 

Overall Breakdown

Greedy Williams displays stellar recovery at the line of scrimmage. Shows excellent ability to process and attack at the catch. Has an excellent ability to show patience in coverage and time his attack really well. Needs to show more discipline on routes and rely on mechanics. Might struggle to impose his will against large receivers. Not elite at disengaging blocks and attacking the ball.

 

Draft Round Prediction

Mid-to-Late First Round

Greedy Williams is the top cornerback on my draft board. I firmly believe that he has a higher ceiling than other prospects, such as Washington’s Byron Murphy, although he may not be the most pro ready today. I could see Williams coming off the board as early as five to Tampa Bay, but I think it’s much more likely that we see him come off the board in the middle of the round, but could slip to the latter half.
