Position: Defensive End
Much like Lacy, it’s hard to identify an exact predecessor for Webber. He got limited snaps in 2016 due to competition at the position from Jarrell Owens and Cole Walterscheid. Yet, Webber was second on the Cowboys, only behind Taylor, in sacks, even with limited reps. Webber got to the quarterback six times
Webber got to the quarterback six times and also recorded nine tackles for loss. More impressively, Webber got three pass deflections. Those numbers could be magnified with more starting time for Webber in 2017.
OK State’s defense in 2017 largely relies on the pass rush. That part of the Pokes game lacked consistent effectiveness for much of the 2016 season. A solid season, maybe even double digit sacks, from a player like Webber could give the defense the boost it needs to be one of the best in the Big 12.
