Comparison

Greedy Williams Cleveland Browns

A new-age cornerback prospect that almost looks like he was made in some type of create-a-player mode given his length, foot speed, ball skills, instincts and competitive drive. Initially started high school career off as a wide receiver before being thrust into action on the defensive side of the ball due to injury. Excelled right away at his new position totaling nine interceptions as a sophomore and then 10 more as a junior. Extremely advanced from a technical standpoint for someone that grew up primarily playing offense. Doesn’t take many, if any, false steps while in reverse and always looks to be in complete control of his body. Likes to click his feet as he gains depth and does a nice job of keeping his eyes in the backfield. Looser hips allow him to mirror wideouts of all different sizes before he eventually has to turn and open up. Already hand checks like a seasoned vet and will fight through arms to break up a pass. Seems to be comfortable in both press and off-man coverage, which makes sense as he not only knows how to find leverage and redirect at the line of scrimmage with a jam, but is also quick enough to close gaps and break on routes as plays progress. Has tested in the upper percentile with a laser-timed 4.5 in the 40-yard dash on record to go along with a 4.3 shuttle and 128-inch broad jump. Has also raised some eyebrows with his measurements as his thin, wiry frame is well over 6-foot-1. Will need to keep the right mindset and adjust to the everyday demands of big-time college football, but should be viewed as a potential CB1 for a Top 10 program as he checks off all of the right boxes. Could find success in a variety of different defensive schemes, but might ultimately be his best in bump-and-run situations. Day 1 upside if peaking ahead towards the NFL Draft.
