5. Atlanta Falcons

LSU. Greedy Williams . 5. player. 44. . CB

The Atlanta Falcons seem to have fallen apart defensively. They’ve given up at least 30 points over the past three weeks, all of them losses. Opposing quarterbacks have been able to shred them through the air with their cornerbacks unable to make anywhere near enough plays to be a factor. This has rendered their pass rush ineffective as a result.

It’s high time they moved to correct this problem by finding at least one cornerback who can be that lockdown guy. Greedy Williams certainly looks the part. He’s 6’2 with speed, fluidity and a physical presence that frustrates receivers when lined up against him. He comes from a proven program too at LSU.
