Prospect Profile: Corey Webster

Corey Webster School: LSU
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 199 40: 4.55 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Two-year starter who saw limited action with the first team as a sophomore. All-American recipient as a senior after posting 33/2/9. Posted career numbers as a junior with 46/7/25.

Positives: Technically sound cornerback coming off a disappointing senior campaign. Displays solid footwork moving in reverse, fluid turning his hips and runs downfield with opponents. Displays a good move on the pass as well as overall ball skills. Flashes on the scene displaying a burst of closing speed and positions himself against opponents to break up the pass. Displays ability in zone and quick locating the ball in the air. Resilient, works to get off blocks and defend the run.

Negatives: Looked lackadaisical and not always mentally on top of his game last season. Did a lot of face guarding and was slow getting his head back around to make plays on the ball. Also seemingly much less aggressive.

Analysis: After a brilliant junior campaign when he looked like one of the best cornerbacks in the nation, Webster's play significantly slipped last year. Seemed to lose confidence and had difficulty when not facing the quarterback. Slipped out of the first round, yet still offers a good amount of upside potential and can eventually start at the next level once he gets his confidence back.
