No. 4: Greedy Williams, Cornerback, LSU
Oh yes, no doubt this will surprise people. LSU cornerback Greedy Williams has constantly been mocked exceptionally high.
Well, simply put, scouts may not be liking Williams as much as the media does. According to Walter Football, Williams has some attitude and speed concerns, which means the scouts don’t see him going in the top 10 as much as the back half of the first round.
But that doesn’t mean Williams isn’t a great player. His tape speaks for itself, and the 49ers could use multiple picks to upgrade the secondary.
Williams is an exceptional talent when it comes to both his height and his play on the field. If he can alleviate the Niners of those speed concerns, he could be an absolute steal in the back half of the first round. He plays with good agility and strength, and should have no problems whatsoever integrating into the 49ers’ style of defense.
No doubt, if Williams becomes a Niner, most if not all of the fanbase will be very pleased indeed.
