    The Dallas Cowboys have taken William & Mary cornerback B.W. Webb in the fourth round of the NFL draft, their second straight pick for the secondary after an early focus on offense.

    Webb, who had eight interceptions as a freshman but just three over his final three seasons, was the 114th overall pick Saturday.

    The Cowboys invested heavily in cornerbacks last year, trading into the top 10 to get Morris Claiborne and giving Brandon Carr a $50 million contact in free agency.

    Orlando Scandrick is the third cornerback for Dallas. Webb could be a replacement for Mike Jenkins, a backup last year who signed with Oakland as a free agent.

    The 5-foot-10, 183-pound Webb started a school-record 48 games at William & Mary and had 151 career tackles.
