NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah updated his Top 50 prospects for the 2019 NFL Draft, which included LSU linebacker Devin White and cornerback Greedy Williams.

Jeremiah had White at No. 6 and Williams at No. 32.
quote:

No. 6
Devin White
School: LSU | Year: Junior
Previous rank: 8


White has a thick, sturdy frame and possesses prototypical explosiveness and playmaking skills. Against the pass, he has the speed and agility to cover TEs down the field, and he closes space in a hurry when he's in zone coverage. He has timing and burst as a blitzer. He wins the majority of his one-on-ones versus running backs in pass protection. Against the run, White brings sideline-to-sideline range, but he will get stuck on blocks once engaged. He has good (but not great) instincts to key/read. However, even when he's a half count late, he makes up for it with his play speed. He is an outstanding, chest-up tackler. Overall, White has what teams are looking for at the position: The ability to run, cover and blitz.

No. 32
Greedy Williams, CB
School: LSU | Year: Sophomore (RS)
Previous rank: 31

Williams is a tall, lean cornerback with build-up speed and ball skills. In press coverage, he doesn't shoot his hands, but he uses his gliding stride to match and mirror wideouts. Williams isn't as effective in off coverage; he gets too high and lacks pop out of his plant and drive. He had a tough time against Alabama's Jerry Jeudy. When he's in phase, he does a good job of locating and playing the football. He's a low, wrap/drag tackler in the run game, and his lack of play strength shows up at times. Overall, Greedy is a tough evaluation. I love his size and ball awareness, but I'm concerned about his lack of short-area burst and physicality.

Whoever picks him will get the next Ray Lewis without all that murder stuff.

I'll never forget when we were sweating if DW would pick LSU. One of the local radio guys asked his mom off the record where he was going. I'm paraphrasing, but she said something like "he just got a new horse. He loves his horse. he ain't leaving his horse." lololol Daisy Mae kept DW at LSU! We owe Daisy Mae some love!

"he just got a new horse" - now THAT's how you cheat right. All these a-holes thinking an offer means cash money. SMH

Williams is a tall, lean cornerback with build-up speed" So a 4.3 is now considered "build-up speed". Got it.
