B.W. Webb A Potential Sleeper

April 11th, 2013

Yeah, Joe knows what’s coming from the SEC elitists. “Who the hell is “B.W. Webb?”

From the research Joe has done, he could be a hidden gem. A cornerback from William and Mary, Webb shined on the Division I-AA level. Playing in the Colonial Athletic Association, Webb was All-Conference three times.

Webb, as he told Joe and other members of the fourth estate at the NFL Scouting Combine, is getting acquainted to playing on a higher level.

“I’m warming up to it, getting used to it,” Webb said. “I got a taste of it at the Senior Bowl.”

It was there that Webb took care of himself on the field, hanging with the big boys, even played well in man coverage against some of the top wide receivers in this month’s draft.

“I had some good feedback,” Webb said of coaches and scouts at the Senior Bowl. “They told me I played very well during that week, caught punts really well, and they liked the fact that I did punt returns.

“It showed that I do have the confidence and I can play against anybody that you put me on the field with.”

Webb, too, learned that he has to work on his weaknesses to shine on the NFL level.

“I wouldn’t call them weaknesses, but I would say biggest thing for me to improve on is my tackling,” Webb said.

Webb is a little dude, 5-10, 185. While he can play with top receivers, the need to improve tackling may sink him with Bucs coach Greg Schiano.

Joe wouldn’t be shocked if Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik drafted three corners in the draft, which begins in two weeks.

While Webb could be a late second day or an early third day pick – veteran scout Chris Landry rates Webb as a late second-rounder – Joe isn’t confident Webb will suit up for the Bucs during rookie camp next month.

    B.W. Webb is a Beast

  2. Buc Wilder Says:

    F*ck it- I say we just draft 8 CB’s!!! They said you can never have too many. Take ‘em all to camp then- trade bait

  3. @JimJacked on twitter Says:

    What a swing we could have in the secondary this year compared to last. IF (and these are some big if’s) we get Revis, if Mark draft’s a quality corner and if Eric wright plays up to his last years paycheck. I’m an optimist and a dreamer and while it might not be likely all of these occur it is definitely possible.

    I wonder what Captain Tim thinks. He’s my go-to guy for football knowledge, not these cockamamie football experts and GM’s.

  5. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Hopefully Director of College Scouting Eric Stokes, can rebuild our secondary in a similar fashion that helped; propel Seattle as one of the better units in the league.

    Richard Sherman
    Drafted: 2011: 5th Rnd, 154th by SEA
    First Team All-Pro (2012)
    PFWA All-Rookie Team (2011)
    2013 Pro Bowl Alternate

    Brandon Browner

    @ Joe

    from your research of him, I just wanted know if maybe you found out the reason why he went to a division 2 school. was it because he wasn’t offered a scholarship from any division 1 school so he had to settle? was it maybe because he wanted to be closer to home? or was maybe because he knew he couldn’t hang with the big boys? that we give me a better understanding of what this guy is all about.

    Who the hell is B.W. Webb?

    Didn’t want to disappoint you Joe. :-)

    Nothing wrong with rooting for the best college football conference (SEC) in the nation.

  8. BigMacAttack Says:

    Shots fired across the bow. He’s probably still sneaking rum in the lazarette.

  9. Joe Says:

    Andrew:

    William and Mary is Division I-AA.

  10. HumanPrius Says:

    Tribe Pride! Since the Bucs couldn’t get Derek Cox, they should go after Webb, if only for my personal satisfaction (as probably the only Bucs fan who went to W&M).

  11. andres Says:

    My god this guy can’t play man. Pass.

  12. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Wish we had more picks in the 2nd Round

    or

    Another one at the top of the 3rd Round

    Robert Alford CB Southeastern Louisiana 5-10 188 (2nd round prospect)

  15. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @andres

    Lol, Yeah seen that on the kick return. They both need to spend more time working on there off man coverage though. But I’ll take Alford over Trufant in run support

  16. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Eric Page. Roughly 5′ 9″. Slot Reciever. All time leading wr for Univ. Toledo.

    Can play all over the field. Excelled in the short passing game taking screens and crossing routes. Was signed by the Broncos last year as an undrafter free agent but was injured.

    Clearly the Bucs are trying to upgrade that 3rd wr spot without using a draft pick. We now have multiple guys competing for it. Eric Page is most likely camp fodder, but if he can stay healthy and can prove he can still do what he did in college, he may earn a spot on the team or practice squad.

    He is not a kick returner.
