Cowboys waived CB B.W. Webb.

It's an admission of failure from owner/GM Jerry Jones, who made Webb the No. 114 overall pick of last year's draft. The move is in spite of the Cowboys' depth issues at cornerback. Webb was routinely roasted on his 185 defensive snaps as a rookie, and hadn't looked improved in the spring or preseason. His age (24) and draft pedigree should get him another look in relatively short order, however.

ESPN Dallas has Cowboys second-year CB B.W. Webb on the outside looking in at a 53-man roster spot.

Webb, the 114th pick in last year's draft, played 185 defensive snaps as a rookie, allowing 11-of-13 passes thrown at him to be completed for 131 yards and three touchdowns and a 148.2 passer rating. He then returned to have an underwhelming spring. Sterling Moore and seventh-round rookie CB Terrance Mitchell are ahead of Webb on the depth chart heading into camp. Webb was initially viewed as the heir apparent to slot corner Orlando Scandrick.

The Dallas Morning News expects fourth-round CB B.W. Webb to "make an impact" this season.

Webb wasn't drafted to be a starter, but he should see immediate playing time in nickel and dime packages. The Cowboys view Webb as the eventual replacement for current slot corner Orlando Scandrick. Webb has generated a ton of buzz since minicamp and shouldn't have any trouble finding his way on the field as a rookie.

Cowboys agreed to terms with No. 114 overall pick CB B.W. Webb on a four-year contract.

The small-school prospect generated a ton of buzz at Cowboys rookie minicamp. Owner Jerry Jones said he expects Webb to see immediate snaps in nickel and dime packages. He's also a capable return man. Productive in college and at the Combine (4.51 40-yard dash, 40.5-inch vertical leap), Webb's main drawback is his size (5-10, 184). He'll likely need to adjust to the NFL's size and speed on special teams before playing meaningful snaps on defense.

Cowboys fourth-round CB B.W. Webb stood out at rookie minicamp.

Cowboys.com's Bryan Broaddus mentioned Webb on numerous occasions over the last few days, and owner/GM Jerry Jones talked Webb up in a radio interview. Jones expects Webb to see immediate snaps in nickel and dime packages. Slot CB Orlando Scandrick restructured his contract this offseason, but his salary spikes to $3.5 million in 2014 and $5 million in 2015-2016. He may not see any of that money.

Cowboys selected William & Mary CB B.W. Webb with the No. 114 overall pick.

Webb (5-10, 184) set a school record with 48 consecutive starts, intercepting 11 passes for the Tribe. He earned 2012 Co-Special Teams Player of the Year in the Colonial Athletic Conference, averaging 11.2 yards per punt return. Webb ran 4.51 in Indy with a 40.5-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump, demonstrating lower-body explosion. Webb has starting-caliber attributes, but is undersized and plays like it, often shying from contact. He'll fight for snaps on special teams as a rookie.
