Browns CB Greedy Williams said he is embracing being a second-round pick, despite many draft analysts pegging him as a first-round prospect.
“I feel like God’s got a place for everybody and my place wasn’t going in the first round,” said Williams, via Scott Petrak of Browns Zone. “My place was to be in The Land and come build with a great team, great coaching staff and I’m just like happy to be here, ready to get to work with the vets and hopefully we’re going where we’re supposed to go.”
Browns HC Freddie Kitchens complimented Williams’ ability to “backpedal” and “close on the ball.”
“He’s smooth. He transitions well from his backpedal and he can close on the ball,” coach Freddie Kitchens said of his first impression. “He’s long, of course, and then he competes,” said Kitchens.

- Wyatt believes Titans WR Darius Jennings is the best kick returner on the team, but admits it’s still “too early” to make predictions on who the 2019 starter will be.
