Former LSU star cornerback, Greedy Williams, somehow had to wait until Friday evening for his named to called at the draft, but the Cleveland Browns were surely licking their chops when he fell to them at No.46.
Cleveland wasted no time jumping all over the opportunity and Greedy is now the latest member of an already loaded Browns roster.
Never short of confidence, however, the 21-year-old fearlessly claimed that the Browns are a lock to make next year's Super Bowl while on a conference call with reporters on Friday night upon his selection.

C'mon rook, don't get Greedy on us.
Though these comments are astoundingly premature, we can't necessarily blame Williams for uttering them, as he was surely fired up after the Browns traded up three spots with Indianapolis to land his services.
And he is absolutely falling in love with the idea of playing with former LSU studs Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry.

Additionally, Greedy might get to start opposite 2018 rookie standout Denzel Ward, a Pro-Bowler last season.
In retrospect, it's a match made in heaven for the young defensive back, but in the future he should wear these bold predictions much closer to the vest as his Browns already have a world of expectations on their shoulders heading into 2019.
