He's the rookie from Nicholls St. that everyone is talking about in camp.
“In Lardarius Webb, we got a young man that can help us on the defensive side of the ball and also help us with special teams because, he’s also a returner,” said general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome.
“You get a player like that that has the versatility that he has, you can see so many roles that he can play in, and a guy that has the potential to be both a safety and a corner. When John [Harbaugh] and the coaches are putting together their 45-man squad, to have someone with that type of flexibility makes their job very easy.”
The rookie can play corner, safety, and receiver, and he can produce on both ends of special teams. In high school he also played at quarterback.
Look for him on special teams early but if he opens some important eyes (mainly Cam Cameron and coach John Harbaugh) with his route running and hands he could also benefit the Ravens at receiver.
-Lardarius Webb was selected in the third round (88th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft.
-Set multiple records at multiple positions in 2008 for Nicholls State.
