OVERALL

Webb is listed as a safety but primarily serves as the nickel in the defense. He has just enough length and physicality to play in the box. With the athleticism to cover and physicality to set the edge, Webb is an interesting prospect. He doesn't have "wow" plays but is consistent. As a natural run player, he has a slight deficiency in his overall coverage abilities. If he can play to his strengths as a physical nickel, he might be able to find a home.

       

GRADE: 6.5/10 (Career Backup/Rotational Player—Round 6)
