With one of the youngest rosters in the NFL, the ceiling is incredibly high for the Cleveland Browns in 2020. While 2019 was a year to forget, with new head coach Kevin Stefanski at the helm, the Browns will be looking to turn the page in 2020. This is one player who will be a major factor in Cleveland next season.

Greedy Williams was selected by the Browns in the second round of the 2019 Draft. Williams was outstanding in college, allowing a completion percentage of just 36.5% and a passer rating of 52.8 in his final season at LSU. In the weeks leading up to the Draft, Williams was pegged as a top-10 selection and was widely thought of as the best cover corner in the draft.

What drew teams away from Williams is his tackling, which was his biggest deficiency in college. It's also something he's struggled with so far in the NFL, posting only 47 total stops in his first season despite starting 12 games for the Browns. Overall, it was a pretty disappointing season he had for the Browns last year.

However, Cleveland comes into this season with a much improved secondary, which will aid Williams and his tackling flaws. They brought in safeties Karl Joseph and Andrew Sendejo through free agency along with Williams' former LSU teammate Grant Delpit in the second round of the draft.

Joseph and Delpit will likely start in the safety positions next season, which, in addition to Denzel Ward, gives the Browns one of the youngest and most exciting secondaries in the league. In 2020, Williams will be ready to prove himself as the best corner taken in last year's draft and help make the Browns secondary one of the best in the NFL.
