Analyzing the Cleveland Browns depth chart at cornerback
Most Likely the No. 2: Greedy Williams
Cleveland was left without a first round pick this season as they traded that in the deal with the New York Giants which netted them wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. They were more than happy with the move as they know what OBJ can do.
He’s one of the best wideouts in the league and will open up their entire offense as he gives quarterback Baker Mayfield a true game changer to work with. That didn’t mean it was easy sitting out of the action during the first night of the draft. It did become a little easier though when LSU’s Greedy Williams started to slip into the second round.
Eventually, the talented cover corner fell far enough that the Browns decided to make a move up to No. 46 in order to secure his services. There were reports that Williams fell due to his lack of tackling but also due to a low score on the Wonderlic.
Cleveland wasn’t too worried about the test, especially considering how late they got him. As for the tackling, this is an area where a team can help a player grow and they’re more than willing to put the work in here considering Williams’ ability in coverage.
Williams was one of the highest rated defensive backs in the draft, so getting him at 46 was a steal — especially considering he’s already getting work with the first team in practices.
