10. Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
- Height: 6’1″
- Weight: 185
- Class: Redshirt Sophomore
The top cornerback on this board, Greedy Williams has gotten plenty of hype entering the 2018 college season. He also has hype in NFL Draft circles and is almost the consensus top guy for 2019. Williams sits at six foot one, an ideal height for corners in the NFL that plays on the boundary. Along with that, he boasts traits that everyone wants to see out of a top corner. Williams is tough at the line of scrimmage, getting his hands on receivers to get them off rhythm.
He also doesn’t need to always press, as he possesses the quickness to change direction and flip his hips with ease. He has great change of direction and good ball skills. One thing to watch for Williams this season is his ability to stick with receivers in a straight line down the field. He sometimes gets caught peeking too much at the quarterback.
9. Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama
- Height: 6’2″
- Weight: 196
- Class: Junior
It is almost tradition to have Alabama safeties this high. We can talk about how good the position has been in recent drafts, from Landon Collins a couple years ago, to both Minkah Fitzpatrick and Ronnie Harrison back in April of this year. Now, the next guy in line is ready to make his name heard early in 2019. Deionte Thompson has all the tools to be the top safety prospect in 2019. Thompson can play both deep and at the line of scrimmage. He has great instincts at the line of scrimmage to blow plays up for negative yardage.
Thompson is a great tackler and rarely ever gets beat when he has his sights on someone, and he possesses good quickness and the ability to stick with receivers down the field and has great anticipation to get to the ball. He possesses a lot of Fitzpatrick’s and Harrison’s best traits.
