Combine Performance Boosts Webster to Broncos

Posted Apr 26, 2013

Cornerback Kayvon Webster improved his stock by flashing speed and strength in his pre-draft performances.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver’s second-round pick -- running back Montee Ball – grew up a Terrell Davis fan.

The club’s third round pick – cornerback Kayvon Webster – grew up a Champ Bailey fan. Both were avid Broncos enthusiasts.

“I love Champ,” Webster said. “Favorite corner.”

Webster went on to say that the Broncos’ 1998 Super Bowl team was what first attracted him to the game of football. Now, the former South Florida Bull joins the team as the 90th overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, with a strong showing at the combine boosting his stock to within the top 100 picks.

“Kayvon is a fast and explosive player who had great production during his career at South Florida,” Head Coach John Fox said. “He was one of the faster cornerbacks in the draft with sub-4.4 speed, and he will be a great addition to our team.”

Webster credited his performances at the NFL Combine and the East-West Shrine Bowl for earning a third-round selection.

“I think it helped me out tremendously,” Webster said. “I think the East-West Shrine helped me out as much as the combine because I showcased my talents.”

NFL Network Analyst Mike Mayock agreed, saying that Webster “opened some eyes at the East-West game.”

Knowing Webster was still available as the 90th pick approached, Fox said the staff was content at staying put and neglecting to trade up or down. Webster has the qualities that the Broncos were seeking.

“We were very pleased he was there,” Fox said. “He’s 5’10” and-a-half, 195 (pounds), he’s got great short quickness. Probably one of the fastest corners in the draft. We felt good about his upside and what evidence he put on tape.”
