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
09/02/16 - S Lardarius Webb returned to practice earlier in the week, but missed the final preseason game against the Saints. Webb had been dealing with a back issue. He is making the full-time transition from cornerback this season. He is expected to start opposite of newly signed Eric Weddle.
05/26/16 - S Lardarius Webb is not concerned about transitioning from cornerback this season. Webb played safety in college and took reps at that position several times last season. "It's going awesome," Webb said. "I'm enjoying it. I feel like I'm a natural at it. Just getting down the plays and getting used to playing with Kendrick (Lewis) and Eric (Weddle), but I'm loving it."
01/04/16 - The Ravens could move Lardarius Webb from cornerback to safety next season. Webb played some safety over the final few games and was effective in that position.
"I just view myself as helping this defense," Webb said. "We are trying to become a more athletic secondary, and with me at safety I think that will help out a lot - roaming in the middle of the field and it allows me to have more control over the defense."
Baltimore could use its sixth pick in the 2016 NFL Draft on a shutdown cornerback, such as Florida State's Jalen Ramsey or Florida's Vernon Hargreaves III. Upgrading the secondary, which was susceptible to big plays this season, will be a main priority of the offseason.
11/10/15 - CB Lardarius Webb has overcome some early injuries and has played well over the past several games. His experience and versatility could be a boost in the second half of the season, barring any further injuries. "As far as his versatility is concerned, he's a guy that can play inside, he can play corner, you can move him back and play some safety," defensive backs coach Chris Hewitt said. "There are a lot of things that Lardarius can do, and we'll continue to find out ways to use him and utilize his skill set."
10/21/15 - CB Lardarius Webb (thigh/hamstring) returned to practice after missing the previous game. Webb was injured Week 5 against Cleveland and could not practice leading up the 49ers game. The Ravens desperately need him this week against the Cardinals because of the number of injuries and ineffective play in the secondary.
