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
