Berea, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) – Moments after being drafted 46th overall Greedy Williams declared the Browns were going to make and win the Super Bowl.

The comments, made in the excitement of the moment, landed the rookie a visit to John Dorsey’s and Freddie Kitchens’ office.

Tuesday Williams along with the entire Browns rookie class visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio and it reminded him of a goal he set a few years ago before he became a Cleveland Brown.

“My job isn't finished until I have a gold jacket,” Williams said Wednesday as he and his fellow rookies hosted a youth football camp at the team’s facility in Berea.

“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.”

The private tour was a reminder for Williams of what he aims to achieve in Cleveland.

“It was great,” Williams said. “I'm just ready to get this season going and try to work towards being a Hall of Famer because that's one of my long-term goals is to be a Hall of Famer.”

As for the Hall of Famer that inspires Williams the most, the former LSU Tiger had an interesting response.   

“One of the guys, it might sound weird, he played receiver, Randy Moss,” Williams said. “I grew up watching Moss, remember just playing backyard football, we make a spectacular catch and we'd call it a Moss, so we always looked up to Moss where I grew up from.”

Williams got off to a slow start during rookie minicamp and OTAs but came on strong during minicamp in June that saw him make plays daily, including the play of camp when he jumped a route and intercepted Baker Mayfield for a pick-six.

“Every time I come out on the field, I want to dominate, I want to be one of the best out here,” Williams said. “So knowing that [negative] plays are going to happen, that's just something that's going to happen, you just have to come back the next play and be great and not make the same mistake that you made the first play.

“My mindset just coming out every day and dominating and being one of the best players out here.”
