The Cleveland Browns addressed the need for another starting cornerback, moving up three spots in the second round of the NFL draft to select LSU’s Greedy Williams with the No. 46 overall pick on Friday night.

Browns general manager John Dorsey sent the No. 46 pick and No. 144 to Indianapolis to get Williams, considered the best cornerback in the powerful SEC.

The sixth cornerback selected in the second round, Williams joins fellow LSU alums Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry in Cleveland.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Williams will likely start opposite Denzel Ward, the fourth overall pick in 2018 who made the Pro Bowl as a rookie.

The Browns didn’t have a first-round pick this season after Dorsey traded it to the New York Giants in March as part of the deal for Beckham.
