Gut Reaction: Broncos draft Kayvon Webster with pick #90

Sometimes you just have to be honest with your readers.

I've never seen Kayvon Webster play--not once.  Not one time.  And when that happens, you'd better not pretend like you know what the hell you're talking about.   We're not that kind of site.

But that's why Al Gore invented video.  So let's get to it--all of us on the fly.

Quickly, this is what I'm seeing:

  1. The kid is a classic off-man corner; that's where he's most comfortable
  2. His quickness allows him to react to the wide receiver's route
  3. He tackles way above average for a cornerback
  4. He'd be perfect in a zone nickel or dime

Overall, I'd have to say I'm impressed by the quality of his tape.  Color me pleasantly surprised.  The Broncos clearly thought higher of him than most of the league.  If you're looking for a silver lining, Mike Mayock says the kid has first-round talent.

Still, where is he going to fit on the roster?  And did the Broncos really need another cornerback?

Of course they did--unless you're forgetting Uncle TJ's first rule of football: you can never have enough cornerbacks.

This is especially true when you have Peyton Manning, and your defense is going to be playing with leads and spending a ton of time in nickel and dime coverage.  

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
