Here is what people around the league are saying in Webb’s official scouting report via nfl.com:
STRENGTHS: Opportunistic. Grabbed five interceptions this season and has two career pick-sixes. Defensive MVP of the Cotton Bowl against Sam Darnold and USC. Had three interceptions over his final five games. Showed improvement year over year at safety. Responded faster to quarterback’s clues as season went on. Productive tackler in both seasons as starter. Quick and consistent tackles to limit yards after catch. Good downhill depth in run support to limit cutback angles for runners.
WEAKNESSES: Undersized with narrow waist and the build of a cornerback. Below average athletic ability. Lacks fluidity in his change of direction. Tight-hipped. Struggles to flip and sprint when squatting on routes. Gets grabby in coverage. Will struggle to handle man coverage responsibilities against speedy receivers who climb up to his level. Shows some confusion against combo routes. Chase speed is dull. Fast running backs leave his pursuit angles ineffective.
