We had those two Williams CBs on our top 2 and jumped as soon as one was taken.

Many had him as the top CB in the draft. Amazing value mid 2nd round. There's our defense. We need a LB or two for competition, but we are ready to boogie.

I'm kind of confused by this. We bring in a DC that likes to run zone coverage and we bring in a man corner. 

Wilks uses a heavy amount of pattern matching and boundary lock as well.    You can put Greedy to the short side of the field and let his physical gifts (man press) take over while you have the rest of the defense in their call.   Also he plays a pretty large amount of cover 6 lock too.    Think - Josh Norman at one time.

Ball Hawking DB. What he does well, can’t be coached. If you’re a QB, you don’t want to put up a 50-50 ball on this Dawg!

Ok I can get behind that. We may need to give him some rabies injections so he can attack someone in the ground game

Seems like I saw this round table that mentioned him in relation to his very small amount of tackles. Wasn't paying attention because I didn't think he was going to be a brown. Anybody else?

is this really the browns? how does this keep happening? months ago befire we picked up richardson and traded the 17th away....i still had my heart set on one of those DT's, but greedys nsne keot coming up so i checked him out. Tge piece i read about him months ago stated he'd be a good mate for ward and might be a better pure cover out of college than ward was.

im still shaking my head how that guy was there st 46 when people were wondering if he wouldnt be gone by 17

Nobody in the NFL runs "one" coverage, ever..

In any 3-down sequence, you could have.. one play cover zero, one play pattern-match on half the field and man with no help the other half, and one play quarters.

A player who's good at man will likely also be good at zone but vice versa is not always true.

Greedy is good at both.. he's a first-team All American who led the SEC in picks for a reason.

 

Great pick, well worth moving up 3 picks to snag.  He's PFF's top-rated cover CB.

 

Now if only the rumors are true about Darron Lee so crossing routes won't be open 100% of the time this season..

Baby primetime Deion sanders

Deion is who I thought of, and told Canton Mike about it.

He is an outstanding shut down cb. and not small.

and blazing tenacious and fast. 4.3 something.

Amazing he was still there.

from watching video of him - teams regretted it when they DID throw to his side.

I love both picks - it took some research on the Takitaki lb pick, but I'm good. They got it right.

and for Greedy to fall?

hell yes, go man to man all day long.

At 6-foot-2, Williams boasts rare, instinctive cover skills that had him projected as a first-round pick in most mock drafts. Browns general manager John Dorsey said Friday he was surprised Williams was still available at No. 46.

"I thought he'd be one of the first five guys picked off the board (in the second round)," Dorsey said.

 

The deal required the Browns to move up three picks, trading Nos. 49 and 144 to Indianapolis for their selection, No. 46. The No. 144 pick was acquired in the Browns' trade of running back Carlos Hyde to Jacksonville early in the 2018 season.

Greedy’s mom pushed a laundry buggy thru streets of the projects, took a bus to a job at Holiday Inn paying her $180 a week & the family’s low-income home was in such shape that rent was as little as $8 a month.
