Oakland Raiders: 5 possible picks at No. 35
With only one cornerback coming off the board in round one, there is plenty of talent to be had at the cornerback position in round two. Greedy Williams of LSU is one of those guys who, perhaps surprisingly, fell into the second round. Rumors surfaced that he could slide, but I don’t think many expected that slide to continue into the second round.
Long, athletic, and fluid, Williams was considered the top corner in this class by some. At 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, Williams has the height that scouts and coaches covet from their outside corners. At that height, Williams ran a speedy 40-yard dash clocking in at 4.37 seconds.
Due to his size and skill set, Williams is likely best suited to be a press-coverage corner in the NFL, which isn’t necessarily what the Raiders need. Rashaan Melvin was the same way, and look how that worked out for him in Oakland this season.
Regardless, Williams is talented and has the athleticism and intelligence to do a lot of different things. He will become a starter in the NFL, whether for the Raiders or another team. Should he make it past the first two picks in the second round, expect the Raiders to have quite a decision on their hands.
