No. 1: Greedy Williams
As I previously mentioned in my NFL Draft and free agency positions of need article , LSU Tigers Greedy Williams is expected to be the No. 1 pick when it comes to cornerbacks. Unless for some unlikely reason the 49ers steer clear of the top players at EDGE, Williams won’t be wearing the red and gold in 2019.
The 6-foot-1, 182-pound corner rounded out the season with 33 tackles, two interceptions and nine pass deflections.
With his athleticism, size and strength being positives, The Draft Network also pointed out several negatives surrounding his game:
"Greedy Williams projects as a high impact player in the NFL, for better and for worse. Williams’ ball skills, length and speed will allow him a lot of challenges on the football. But Williams’ effort and lack of desire to play all phases of the position will impact his team as well, only in a negative light. Williams has Pro Bowl potential with a fire lit underneath his rear. He’s got the ability to be a starter fairly quickly, but team will have to be comfortable with the ups and downs…or eliminate them."
With his speed, dynamic play, ability to challenge receivers and contest the ball, the positives far outweigh any negatives for Williams.
