Dallas Cowboys 2013 Draft Results: Cowboys Select CB B.W. Webb With Pick 114

USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys spent a second consecutive pick on their secondary.

Let's hear it for people with initials for first names! One pick after selecting J.J. Wilcox to join the safety fray, the Dallas Cowboys have selected CB B.W. Webb out of William and Mary. W&M is the alma mater of current Cowboys DT Sean Lissemore and former NFL safety Darren Sharper.

Webb checks in at 5'10" and 185 lbs and clocked some impressive numbers at the Scouting Combine. He bested every other cornerback in the vertical jump, the broad jump and the short shuttle. His 40 time of 4.46 means that he isn't a burner, but won't be dusted either.

Webb secured 11 interceptions over the course of his college career and is a fluid athlete that can hold up in man coverage. Eight of those interceptions came as a freshman, and teams simply stopped targeting Webb for the remainder of his career and chose to throw at other teammates. Webb also has special teams value, as he has plus punt-return skills.

On a personal note, I'm pretty happy with the pick. Not just because of the initial angle (pun intended), but because I actually mocked Webb as a Cowboys pick well before his Senior Bowl performance and rise.

Webb is the fourth of five Cowboys draft picks who were brought in for a pre-draft visit with the Cowboys. So far, Escobar is the only pick who wasn't brought in for a pre-draft visit, while Frederick, Williams, Wilcox and Webb were all in Dallas for a visit.

We'll have more on Webb later. For now, Dallas still has picks 151 and 184 remaining.
