Fleet of foot and an excellent leaper who's opportunistic in the open field: reads quarterbacks well and jumps routes, proving a regular threat for pickoffs. Highly athletic. Uses his speed and strong ball skills effectively as a return man.
Undersized and not very physical, leading to challenges against big, fast NFL receivers. Needs to be more pro-active in anticipating plays and pressing his man. Must keep working to learn to pro game and to bulking up his frame.
Speedy, athletic cornerback / return man with solid upside.

Cowboys second-year CB Webb on the bubble? | 07/16/2014 1:56 PM
ESPN Dallas has Cowboys second-year CB B.W. Webb on the outside looking in at a 53-man roster spot.
Webb, the 114th pick in last year's draft, played 185 defensive snaps as a rookie, allowing 11-of-13 passes thrown at him to be completed for 131 yards and three touchdowns and a 148.2 passer rating. He then had an underwhelming spring. Sterling Moore and seventh-round rookie CB Terrance Mitchell are ahead of Webb on the depth chart heading into camp. Webb was initially viewed as the heir apparent to slot corner Orlando Scandrick.

Webb wasn't drafted to start, but he should see immediate playing time in nickel and dime packages. The Cowboys view Webb as the eventual replacement for current slot corner Orlando Scandrick. Webb has generated a ton of buzz since minicamp and shouldn't have any trouble finding his way on the field as a rookie.

Bryan Broaddus of the team's official website has mentioned Webb on numerous occasions over the last few days, and owner/GM Jerry Jones also talked Webb up in a radio interview on Monday. Jones expects Webb to see immediate snaps on "money" downs -- nickel and dime packages. Nickel corner Orlando Scandrick restructured his contract this offseason, but his salary spikes to $3.5 million in 2014 and $5 million in 2015 and 2016. He might not see any of that money.
