Draft Rewind 2005 - Corey Webster - New York Giants

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about COREY WEBSTER: LSU, 6001 199 4.56. Two-year starter. Former wide receiver. Smart corner. Athletic with smooth pedal and good hips. Can turn and run versus deep routes. He plays within his limits. Lacks great catch-up speed. Gives a big cushion and reacts when ball is thrown. Seems to be a better zone than a true man player. Not special in bump and run. May be a better free safety with corner skills. Could react quicker in run support. Will give up the short pass in front of him. Fluid in movements. Good skills but speed will always be the question. Quick and athletic movement in press coverage. Good ball skills and jumping ability. Limited range, but good anticipation. Plays disciplined in coverage. Good hands to catch ball or deflect passes. Quick recognition of run or pass. Will lose focus at times. Short area burst. Generally can run with receivers but was hampered by injuries and was beaten deep. Sudden to close on ball in front of him. Matches up on the opponent’s best receiver. Did not look as smooth in his foot work as he did in 2003. Drag down type who lacks tackling strength. Matches up and can run with speed receivers, despite timed speed. Sudden ball reactions. More confident in man-to-man coverage than zone. All the tools to play on the next level. Injuries should be checked.
