One of the top cornerbacks expected to be available in the NFL Draft made it official on Sunday: LSU’s Greedy Williams has played his last down for the Tigers. He’s headed to the league.
In his announcement, he thanked LSU coaches Les Miles and Ed Orgeron for their support, along with LSU fans and people around Louisiana.
“It is with those abundant blessings in my mind that I have chosen to pursue the opportunity to play professional football in the National Football League by making myself eligible for the 2019 Draft.”
Williams has two interceptions this season, and 33 tackles, along with nine pass breakups.
Williams is widely expected to go in the first round, and could go as high as a top 10 pick as he’s one of the best cornerbacks in the country, and next to Georgia’s Deandre Baker, among the tops in the SEC.
“I Have been blessed by God with a beautiful and supportive family. My blessings also include my LSU Tiger Family, both on and off the field. It is with those abundant blessings in mind that I have chosen to pursue to enter the 2019 NFL Draft” #BeGreedy pic.twitter.com/pAIq6T4vIN
