Broaddus Gives Early Scouting Report On CB B.W. Webb
Webb is one of those players that made the annual pre-draft visit to Valley Ranch this year. This cat can really cover some ground. Very quick. Can play in the slot and mirror his man well. Plays with nice awareness and will really drive on the ball when he sees it. Can play the ball at the high point, 40.5” vertical jump. Is one of those players that has outstanding numbers testing wise but you actually see him play that way. Has rare quickness. Is not afraid to tackle.
Is much shorter than the last William and Mary defensive back to play well in this league, Darren Sharper but there is plenty to like about this kid. You see him on tape because he shows up. Can really cover some ground when he is on his way to the play.
Does a really nice job of playing the ball in this air. For a smallish player, he will wrap up you. Plays with really nice awareness when he drives on the ball. He can read quickly and then he is gone. Doesn’t let his size hurt him on the slant. Very quick feet, showed this during the Combine with all the drills that he went through.
Not afraid to play in the press but there are times where he will jump around blocks. Can play in the slot and covers well. Is physical to drive his man out of bounds. Plays a little side saddle in his technique. Doesn’t always pedal straight back. Is used as a slot blitzer. Needs to do a better job of running through the quarterback.
Will play the ball at the highest point in the air, 40.5” vertical jump. Can get up for his height. Can carry his man across the field with ease. Mentioned his quickness from the Combine, 3.84 on the 20 yard shuttle is rare. Has the skill and talent level to be considered a third round prospect.
