Andraez “Greedy” Williams is a tall lanky press man corner who in the right scheme is a shut down cornerback. Out of press coverage Williams shows patience to let the receiver commit to the route and is able to quickly and fluidly flip his hips to run. Williams isn’t an explosive runner but has the acceleration and long speed to run with defenders down the field. What makes Greedy different than your average press corner is he has good body control that allows him to stick with receivers in and out of breaks from the trail position while also being able to stop and redirection on comeback routes. Williams uses his length and ball tracking skills well to get his hands in to deflect passes as they are getting to the receiver. As a run defender Greedy isn’t aggressive coming forward but will take on receivers to hold his position and dive and wrap up the legs of running backs. His best fit is in a scheme that runs primarily press man coverage, but he has shown the ability to play both off and zone coverage.
Based off of what the team runs for coverages will dictate how you view Geedy’s value. More zone based coverage teams will not be fans of Williams, but those who run high amounts of press coverage will for sure have Williams as a high level first round prospect. Because of this expect Williams to go in the first round with the potential to be a teams number one corner. If he is able to bulk up a bit and show more functional strength it is not out of the question for Greedy to be a multi time Pro Bowler.
