"My job isn't finished until I have a gold jacket," Williams said, alluding to what is awarded to inductees into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, per Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 The Fan. "That's a goal I made in college when I was out there making plays and stuff, and I remember my first game, caught an interception and I said, 'When I get to the NFL level, I want to be a Hall of Famer.'"
Williams was the seventh cornerback drafted when the Browns selected him with the 46th overall pick.
Many thought Cleveland got great value with the move. Williams had eight interceptions and 19 passes defended in 24 games for LSU. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller ranked him as the No. 1 cornerback available and compared him to four-time Pro Bowler Antonio Cromartie.

Many steps stand between Williams and a trip to Canton, Ohio, following the end of his NFL career. But his aspirations aren't misplaced. His potential is high, and he joins a secondary that includes Denzel Ward, the Browns' first-rounder in 2018 who made the Pro Bowl in his first year.
Williams is one of many reasons why Browns fans are justifiably excited for the 2019 season.
