GREEDY WILLIAMS

Round: Second (46th overall)

College: LSU

Position: Cornerback

Height: 6-1 7/8

Weight: 185

Dane Brugler's scouting report: A two-year starter at LSU, Williams played both left and right cornerback in Dave Aranda’s 3-4 base scheme, primarily playing press-man and off-man coverages with some zone concepts worked in — he also played on punt return coverage, slowing down gunners. He was rarely out of position in college with the length and sink-and-flow athleticism to mirror receivers’ movements. While competitive and tough on some tapes, he appeared to shut things down later in the season and his struggles shedding blocks or consistently finishing in the run game were a season-long issue. Overall, Williams lacks ideal bulk and play strength for the next level, but his athleticism and length allow him to blanket receivers in man coverage, projecting as a high upside NFL cornerback if his play personality is consistently competitive.

 

SIONE TAKITAKI

Round: Third (80th overall)

College: BYU

Position: Linebacker

Height: 6-1 1/8

Weight: 238

Dane Brugler's scouting report: A two-year starter at BYU, Takitaki started his Cougars' career as a pass rusher before moving to a stand-up role as a senior, starting the first half of the 2018 season at WILL and the second half at the MIKE position. Needing only one tackle to reach triple digits in the 2018 bowl game, he set a career-best with 19 tackles in his final collegiate game. Takitaki had a tough time living up to the school’s strict honor code, but he credits his wife for turning his life around. While he improved his discipline off the field, his on-field discipline requires maturing, relying more on crazed effort than instincts or technique. Overall, Takitaki has tweener traits that make his scheme fit tough to project at the next level, but he flips a switch and competes with terrific play speed, which will give him a chance to earn a role on special teams while he finds his footing on defense.
