3. Cleveland Browns CB Greedy Williams

While Troy Hill had the best all-around day of Cleveland’s corners, Greedy Williams had himself a day, as well.

Williams hadn’t started a game since December of 2019, his rookie season. He missed all of his rookie season with a bizarre shoulder injury suffered in a tackling drill on the first day of training camp 2020.

He battled injuries this past training camp and rookie Greg Newsome won the starting gig opposite of Denzel Ward.

Well, Newsome got hurt (ankle) and Williams got in, making an important fourth-quarter interception–the first of his professional career.

Interesting nugget from The Athletic: Williams talked about how the Browns’ secondary put an extra emphasis on defending the deep ball by preparing for it all week.

It remains to be seen if Williams will start for Newsome in Week 5, but the Browns should continue to be in good hands if necessary. You need more than two good corners, as it’s a position group that can be decimated by injuries.
