2019 NFL Draft Profile: Greedy Williams, LSU

The aptly named Andraez “Greedy” Williams is one of the premier cornerbacks in college football and showed it this season. He is the ninth overall player on the PFF Big Board and his length, coupled with his ball skills and instincts, make him a potential Day One selection next Thursday.

One of Williams' best skills is his ability to track the ball in flight and disrupt the pass. His 25 forced incompletions over the past two seasons are the fourth-most among corners in the draft class, and he has surrendered passer rating of just 38.7 during that same timespan. He has disruptive length and can match opposing receivers step for step.

Williams isn’t a flash in the pan at the cornerback spot like we have seen many times over the years at PFF. He has had consistent production during his time in Baton Rouge; for his career, he has given up 0.84 yards per cover snap, snagged eight interceptions and has only given up three touchdowns in coverage.
