Andraez "Greedy" Williams (born December 3, 1997) is an American football cornerback for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Louisiana State University (LSU) and was drafted by the Browns in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
High school career
After redshirting his first year, Williams earned a starting spot after junior Kevin Toliver II was suspended. After Toliver came back from suspension, Williams kept his spot throughout the season. As a freshman, Williams led the SEC in interceptions and passes defended. As a result, he was selected to the All-SEC first-team. He became only the second LSU freshman to make the All-SEC team since 1986 (the other being Brad Wing in 2011). On December 2, 2018, Williams announced that he would forgo his remaining two years of eligibility and declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Williams was nicknamed "Greedy" by his aunt, who called him "Greedy-Deedee" after babysitting him as an infant. His mother later took out the Deedee, and Williams adopted the name. In 2015, he told USA Today "I love [the nickname]. They say it’s a great DB name. It helps to be greedy as a defensive back."
