G Fiume/Getty ImagesAn old adage suggests teams can never have enough cornerbacks. B.W. Webb, out of William & Mary, proved that in the fourth round.
Pros: A solid zone corner with great athletic ability. Has the ability to play the ball and is fast enough to cover up some mistakes. Had 11 interceptions in his career with eight coming as a freshman.

Cons: He is not the most physical player in run support. Is a little slight of size and press coverage is not one of his strengths. Did his interception total slip because he didn’t get much action?

Cowboy fit: You can never have enough corners and this could put Orlando Scandrick on the clock. Scandrick’s cap figures jump up in 2014 and this team will need to make some economic decisions. Webb steps in as the fourth corner with Sterling Moore.

Could have had: Earl Watford, G, James Madison; Landy Jones, QB, Oklahoma, Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson, Joseph Randle, RB, Oklahoma State
