Evaluating the Pick: Kayvon Webster

Posted Apr 27, 2013

A look at what media analysts are saying about the Broncos' third-round draft choice.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos used their third-round pick (90th overall) on South Florida cornerback Kayvon Webster.

Below is a summary of what some media members are saying about the choice:

ESPN.com's Scouts Inc.

What he brings: Webster has ideal size and flashes an above-average skill set in man coverage. He has quick feet, transitions well out of cuts and has a noticeable closing burst on tape. In addition, he is one of the better run defenders in this cornerback class. Williams' only knock is lack of elite instincts, but he brings good value at this point with the ability to play outside as well as bump inside at the nickelback position.

How he fits: Champ Bailey is near the end of a Hall of Fame career, but the Broncos did bring in Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in free agency, which will likely move Chris Harris to the nickel spot. The need to add youth and depth, though, to upgrade the secondary in their aggressive man-to-man packages. Webster has a chance to develop for a year, and if he is good enough he could eventually move into either starting slot, because the Broncos will likely need two corners in the near future.

FoxSports.com

Solid pick. Great looking corner and is very smooth in the open field. Denver believes in what they see and latch on to Webster.

USA Today's Nate Davis

Analysis: Champ Bailey isn't getting any younger and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is on a one-year deal. Two pretty good guys for Webster to watch and develop behind

NFL.com's Mike Mayock

Pick Analysis: "This is an interesting pick. This is a big, good-looking back with good foot-pedal skills. He opened some eyes at the East-West Game. Obviously, Denver believes in him enough to take him late in the third round." -- Mike Mayock

SportingNews.com

The Broncos were seeking more coverage speed and stability at corner, and they also were drawn to Webster's smart, technically sound skill set.

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco

Grade: C - Corner is an issue in terms of age. He's a solid player, but this was a little high. They hit on Chris Harris as an undrafted though, so who knows?
