Cornerback Brandon Carr has reportedly taken fourth round selection BW Webb under his wing, an arrangement that can only be good for the development of the rookie.
“Brandon Carr is like my mentor now,” Webb said, per the Dallas Morning News. “He helps me out with techniques, plays, all that. It’s helping out a lot.”
The similarities between the two are fairly obvious. They’re both small school products, with Webb coming out of William and Mary and Carr coming out of Division II Grand Valley State; both were late draft picks, Webb going in the fourth round and Carr going in the fifth back in 2008, and both are fairly quiet in the locker room.
“My thing is to just try to keep him focused because it’s easy to lose focus with all these distractions and everything in the Dallas area and everything that’s going on being a rookie in the NFL playing for the Cowboys,” Carr explained. “I’m just here to talk about football, talk about life. Whatever it is, I’m just going to be here to have a shoulder to cry on, have an ear to listen to him, and I’m always down to give him advice.
“I just want to see him get to his full potential.”
