Webb doesn't have a lot of experience backpedaling or reading passing routes, so he'll have some trouble playing any kind of man-cover schemes until he gains that experience. Per Hope:
Webb is an inconsistent performer who needs better technique in man coverage, in large part due to a lack of experience as a man-on corner.
To succeed in a man-cover scheme, he needs to become more fluid in his backpedal and diagnose double moves more effectively. He also needs to become more physical with his hands in press coverage, though he has shown the ability to jam receivers at the line of scrimmage when he does get his hands on his opponent.
Because he played so much zone coverage in college, Webb excels at it. He has good vision of the field in front of him and reads quarterbacks very well. Via Hope:
Webb excelled in zone coverage at William and Mary and is best suited to play in a zone scheme at the next level.
He has the instincts to know where receivers will be coming into his zone and the speed to get to where he needs to go on the field. He does a good job of reading the quarterback’s eyes, has good playmaking range and effectively gets himself into position to make tackles on the back end.
Hip fluidity and competition against bigger, faster receivers remain questions for him even in zone coverage at the next level, but he is better suited to make an immediate contribution in a zone scheme.
Overall, Webb ranks as the No. 15 CB prospect in the 2013 NFL draft class.
