ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Kayvon Webster has risen up Denver's depth chart as quickly as he climbed up the Broncos' draft board, and not just because of injuries in the secondary, either.
Many personnel people across the league considered it a bit of a reach when the Broncos selected Webster with the 90th pick in the NFL draft.
Webster, who led South Florida with 82 tackles as a senior, almost unheard of for a cover cornerback, is the prototype big cornerback all teams are searching for.
A shade under 6 feet and 200 pounds, he has the speed and strength to cover all those fast, physical receivers that are flooding the field these days.
Three weeks into his rookie season, nobody's questioning the Broncos' third-round grade anymore.
