Pre-NFL Combine Interview with William and Mary Star B.W. Webb
Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Sports

The other day I was lucky enough to get a chance to talk to a player, College of William & Mary star B.W. Webb, a man many fans might not know a lot about currently but after the combine and the draft, they will without a doubt.  Here is my conversation with one of the top small school players around – cornerback, B.W. Webb


B/R: What does B.W. stand for? 

B.W: I am named after my father, William, and it was just a nickname given to me so I knew they meant me and not my father.

B/R: What is your official size?

B.W.: I am 5'10" and (weigh) roughly 183.

B/R: How did you end up at William & Mary?

B.W.: Funny story: it was actually my only offer coming out of high school.  

B/R: What are your thoughts on special teams

B.W.:  I love playing special teams, especially being a punt returner. Anything that gets me on the field.  

B/R: Who was the best player you faced while at William & Mary? 

B.W: Well, two guys come to mind; first has to be Tre Gray at Richmond and, at Weber State (now Atlanta Falcons), Tim Toone. Both presented a great challenge and where fun to go up against. 

What draft-related program will you watch?

B/R: What are you doing to stay in shape for the draft? 

B.W.: I am currently training at Bommarito Performance in Florida, doing everything they tell me so I will be ready for the combine.

B/R: What was your best memory of your time at William & Mary?

B.W.: It has to be my first game in my college career when I had three interceptions and returned one for a touchdown against the University of Virginia...something I won't soon forget.

B/R: Where was your favorite place to play on road? 

B.W.: Any of the trips to face a division one team, but especially playing at the University of Virginia my freshman year.  

B/R: If a scout asked what game would you give them to see you at the best?

B.W.:  This season I would say the Maryland game.

B/R: Do you think your time at wideout in high school helps you in preparation for playing defense? 

B.W: Yeah, definitely does, as I know what the receiver is thinking and wants to do next.

B/R: Who was your favorite player/team growing up?

B.W:  Two guys come to mind: first (Philadelphia Eagles quarterback) Mike Vick, as he is from the same hometown and area I grew up in. As for position-wise, I loved watching (Atlanta Falcons cornerback) Asante Samuel play.

B/R: What are things scouts can't learn watching you on film? 

B.W:  How competitive I am; I relish the chance to go up against bigger wideouts...Maybe I have “small man syndrome."

Can we follow you on Twitter?
