Scouting Report/Player Notes

Webster is a guy who has a lot of intriguing tools to me. He has excellent speed and athleticism at the cornerback position, and one thing that jumps out to me in what I’ve seen and heard from him is the effort he gives on every play. I think he is the kind of guy that can help your team in a variety of ways, starting out on special teams and in specialty packages defensively. His speed will allow him to be a gunner on the punt and kickoff team, and I think eventually he could develop into a significant contributor for a defense. He certainly has the physical tools to do so. He’s at his best in press coverage, and in blitzing situations. He needs work on his technique, especially further downfield. He can hit like a ton of bricks, and led his team in tackles as a senior. I think he has a lot to work with, and will need some seasoning, but the tools are there, and so is the heart and desire. He tries to emulate Champ Bailey with his press coverage, and it’s clear he’s worked hard at that area of his game. Would like to see him make more interceptions, and get his hands on the ball because he has excellent speed.
