Bio: 
First-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-MVFC in 2016 and Second Team All-MVFC in 2015. Finished his senior year with 229 rushes for 1,342 yards and six touchdowns.
Pos: 
Small but creative ball carrier also effective as a pass catcher. Quick-footed, sets defenders up and makes them miss. Easily cuts back against the grain or avoids piles, turns upfield and consistently runs north/south. Possesses the speed and agility necessary to turn the corner, displays vision as well as running instincts and has a burst that he turns on in a single step. Outstanding pass catcher who makes the reception in stride and catches the ball away from his frame. Gives effort blocking, sees the blitz and squares into defenders.
Neg: 
Small, lacks strength and is easily brought down at the point by a single defender. Has size limitations.
Analysis: 
Webb was a productive ball carrier for Youngstown State and displayed himself as a legitimate downfield pass-catching threat. His lack of size will be an issue but Webb will enhance his next-level possibilities by catching the ball well and showing return skills in camp this summer.
