William & Mary’s B.W. Webb displays corner-playing chops

Representatives from 12 NFL teams — including a defensive backs coach from the Cincinnati Bengals — gathered at the pro day held at William & Mary on Thursday, where 11 players went through a workout held outdoors on FieldTurf in 33-degree weather.

Cornerback B.W. Webb, who held his own at the Senior Bowl and among the top performers in his position group in four events at the NFL Scouting Combine, was the main attraction.

Webb (5-foot-10 5/8, 183 pounds) only did position drills and looked like he had good quickness and explosion. It appears he could play as a corner on the outside or as a third corner in the slot.

Defensive end Sean Lissemore — selected in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys — was the last player drafted from William & Mary. William & Mary also produced former Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints defensive back Darren Sharper, as well as Buffalo Bills legend Mark Kelso — who was also a defensive back.
