Browns rookie CB Greedy Williams is not happy about his Madden 20 rating
The Madden video game is notoriously rough on rookies when the initial ratings come out. So when Browns punter Britton Colquitt was filmed having rookie cornerback Greedy Williams try to guess his own ratings, it made for some good comedy.
Throughout the video, Williams wears a disappointed look as he realizes Madden’s creators are not as high on himself as he is right now. But he vows to make them increase those numbers as the season goes along.
Here are Williams’ actual ratings, versus what Colquitt made him guess:
OVR: 73 (Actual Guess: 80)
TACKLE: 53 (Actual Guess: 55)
STR: 54 (Actual Guess: 50 Something)
CATCHING: 67 (Actual Guess: 90)
The LSU product was taken in the second round, No. 46 overall. Williams recorded 38 tackles, 11 pass deflections and six interceptions in 2017. The following year, he had 33 tackles, nine pass deflections and two interceptions. The Browns traded up three spots to grab Williams, pairing him with Denzel Ward to give Cleveland a dynamic corner pairing for a long time if both live up to the hype.
The question then becomes: Can he improve enough to win the starting job opposite Ward?
Williams already is receiving first-team reps opposite Ward, and his progression to date would seem to indicate the answer is yes. And with a front seven that can get to the quarterback well, he should have plenty of opportunities to get his hands on the ball.
The Browns look good on paper, and Williams only adds to that. Now lets see if he can make Madden bump up those ratings.
