LSU cornerback Greedy Williams is player we’ve been discussing quite a bit this offseason as a possible first-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft. Williams has even been mocked to the Pittsburgh Steelers a few times over the course of the pre-draft process. Additionally, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert were both at the LSU pro day this year. With our draft profile of Williams already on the site, a few readers are wanting to see more about the plays he made during his college career at LSU.
In an effort to provide you as much information as possible when it comes to several top players in the 2019 draft class, I am currently putting together as many contextualization posts as I can between now and the end of April and especially when it comes to players who the Steelers might select in the various rounds. In this post, we’ll contextualize the defensive plays made by Williams during his college career and specifically those that included him registering ether a tackle for loss, a sack, a pass defensed, a hurry, an interception, or a forced fumble.
Williams registered 8 total interceptions in the 25 games that he played in at LSU dating back to 2017 in addition to 20 total pass breakups. Williams also registered 1.5 total tackles that resulted in lost yardage to go along with 2 hurries. I was able to track down all but one of these 32 plays that he made and they are contextualized for you in the table below and in order. Each play is linked to a video of it on Youtube.
