Post-Draft Outlook:COULD SURPRISE: Lardarius Webb, a cornerback drafted in the third round, was compared by some analysts to Bob Sanders. He plays bigger than his size (5-10) and is versatile. He can make an impact as a cornerback, safety or returner. Webb has intriguing upside. A closer look at the Ravens' picks: Round 3/88 -- Lardarius Webb, CB, 5-10, 180, Nicholls State...This is a risky pick because Webb lacks size and has a character issue. He was dismissed from Southern Mississippi after violating team rules. The Ravens missed on a small-school cornerback in the third round in 2006 (David Pittman), but they feel Webb is more physical and tenacious than Pittman. Webb will have time to develop behind starters Fabian Washington and Domonique Foxworth. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Lardarius Webb News
09/16/15 - CB Lardarius Webb was limited throughout the preseason but started and was effective in the season-opener against the Broncos. Ravens coach John Harbaugh expects Webb to get even better this week against Oakland. "I thought he played well," Harbaugh said. "He made a couple plays; he kind of got his feet under him. They had the first play, the nine route where they missed it, and I think that kind of gave him a sense of the speed of the game a little bit. And he adjusted to it really well."
09/09/15 - CB Lardarius Webb failed his first fitness test and battled injuries throughout training camp. However, the coaching staff still has confidence in him and Webb will likely start opposite Jimmy Smith in the opener.
The secondary will have a stern test going against Broncos receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.
"He has been practicing since he came back last week, and he looks good," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "He's going to get a tough test. They have two Pro Bowl receivers. I think they were, maybe, the No. 1 and No. 2 - (or) No. 1 and No. 3 - production receivers in the league last year, both on the same team.
"Of course, that has to do with the quarterback, but these are two talented guys, and they have plenty of guys coming and playing third receiver. Obviously, (tight end) Owen (Daniels) is a go-to guy in critical situations, so they have lots of talent."
09/01/15 - CB Lardarius Webb (hamstring) returned to practice this week after missing the past three weeks with a hamstring injury. He could get some snaps in the final preseason game to test the leg and should be ready for the season opener if there are no setbacks. Entering training camp, Webb was expected to start at corner opposite Jimmy Smith. "He should be on schedule for Week 1," head coach John Harbaugh said. "I'm confident. I have faith."
08/20/15 - CB Lardarius Webb has battled some injuries, but still managed to play in the first preseason game against the Saints. However, he missed practice this week with a slight hamstring injury and his status for the second preseason game against the Eagles is uncertain. "Lardarius is working a hamstring," head coach John Harbaugh said. "Maybe he aggravated it a little, perhaps. But it's not right, right now, and he's just nursing it and working it and trying to get it right." Webb is slotted as one of the starting cornerbacks, but Kyle Arrington has played well most of camp and could overtake him on the depth chart.
08/12/15 - CB Lardarius Webb was back at practice Aug. 11 after tweaking his hamstring the previous day. Webb should be available for the first preseason game Aug. 13 against the Saints. Webb is having an uneven camp so far. He missed the first day of practice after failing his conditioning test.
