    Before the start of the season last year, I had B.W. Webb as the top small school cornerback in the game. I had him higher than Robert Alford and every other small school player, for one simple fact, HEART.

    I watched almost every William and Mary game of B.W. and I was impressed at his cover skills. Webb is not afraid of taking on the big name wide receiver, and he never shies away from contact. B.W. is a player that doesn’t talk a lot, but rather keeps you quiet by his intelligent play.

    At the end of the season Webb had made me feel even better about my evaluation of him. I had the pleasure to sit down with B.W. and I was blown away with this kids knowledge of the game. Remember this is a small schooler that had Boston College drooling over him coming out of high school. He ultimately chose William and Mary because of a full scholarship. He compares his play to Asante Samuel and I believe that is a pretty fair comparision.

    B.W. has been learning quite a bit from former Grand Valley State corner and current Cowboy Brandon Carr.

    “Brandon Carr is like my mentor now,” said Webb, speaking at Carr’s celebrity softball game to benefit stopping domestic abuse on Saturday. “He helps me out with techniques, plays, all that. It’s helping out a lot.”

    Carr, Claiborne, Webb, Moore, Scandrick is a pretty deep CB core.

    That DB depth with Lee and Carter returning in front of them ,,, thats just impressive athletically, lots of speed and upside.

    This defense has the ability to be pretty dynamic this season, and the secondary will have a lot to do with it.

    He took on the big name WRs while playing at William and Mary? :laugh2:

    He might have that competitive drive, but he has to prove it first.

    agree, but I would just re-phrase it as
    "you better have atleast 3 good corners".
    and I want to give Scandrick a good look this season, maybe all the pressure at every position can get him going too.

    He apparantly shut down Terrance Williams at the Senior Bowl, at least in the view of one scout.

    Training camp will give him chances to cover Austin, Dez, Harris, etc, so we will see how he stacks up fairly shortly.

    I think he may become a really good special teamer. Waaayyy to early to knight the dude. IMO.

    Claiborne=decent rookie season, time will tell
    Webb=small school rookie, has done nothing yet.
    Scandrick=serviceable 3rd corner (happy that Steve Smith retired)

    This is far from deep imo.

    In the Senior Bowl practices that I saw, JJ Wilcox looked better in coverage than Webb. They were practicing against the same WRs.

    Scandrick is a bit more than a serviceable 3rd corner... he's a very solid slot guy.

    Outside of missing that tackle on Rogers in the ATL game he played very well. He's one of the better slot guys in the league.

    He's not all-pro and he certainly doesn't belong on the outside, but I'd say he's pretty underrated around here.

    That's right, for every potential positive post, there's always someone who has to throw some negativity into it

    BW has what is takes to take Claiborne's spot one day.

    But right now, chances are he won't see much of the field...
