Cowboys select William and Mary cornerback B.W. Webb in fourth round, get big praise from Todd McShay

The Dallas Cowboys drafted William and Mary cornerback B.W. Webb with the 17th pick of the fourth round, 114 overall, one pick behind Alabama guard Barrett Jones and one pick ahead of Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones.

ESPN analyst Todd McShay liked the pick of Webb, who had eight interceptions as a freshman, included three against Virginia, but ended with only 11 in his career as opponents  evidently stayed away from him.

McShay said the Cowboys have shown they knew how to pick and when to pick, even given the selection of Travis Frederick with the 31st pick of the first round despite his being a third-round projection. But he was the best center in the draft and "is a starter," McShay said.

Webb was one of the players the Cowboys had brought in for a visit and also had a good Senior Bowl.
