"The Browns made their ongoing commitment to the secondary even more evident with Friday’s selection of LSU cornerback Greedy Williams, who was graded by some as the top player at his position in the entire draft class. The No. 46 pick enters a situation where he can find immediate playing time, but only if he earns it."
Williams has plenty of talent and there should be a lot of excitement about what he could do with Ward in the secondary. The competition he will have in camp with Terrance Mitchell and T.J. Carrie will make it harder for Williams to earn the starting job, but it should help him gear up for his rookie season early in camp.
