05/06/2014 - Five players who should be on Detroit's draft radar...DE/TE Larry Webster, Bloomsburg: Two defensive ends in the same draft class? Not quite. While Webster lined up as a pass rusher in college, several around the league including myself believe his best NFL position will be on offense at tight end. He was a four-year starting center at Bloomsburg on the basketball squad and finished as the school's all-time leader in blocks (175) before the football coaches talked him into returning to the gridiron. Webster put up consistent production the past two seasons as an edge rusher and also caught a pair of touchdown passes at tight end, but he will require some patience, needing to develop his football strength and technique and adjust to the higher level of competition, something that might take a year or two. Whether teams look to keep him on defense or move him to offense, Webster is worth a third day selection to stash on the roster and groom. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/14/2014 - 2014 Shrine Game: Defensive line prospects shine on Tuesday...While he's not as polished as Justin Ellis or Cassius Marsh, Bloomsburg DE Larry Webster (6-6, 249) has an athletic and intriguing skill-set that is tough to ignore. He displayed excellent quickness, natural bend and the flexibility to play in space and win with speed off the edge. Webster, who starred for four years on the basketball court in college, needs to get stronger and add meat to his lean, lanky body type, but I expect Webster to essentially take a "redshirt" year as a rookie to take advantage of a NFL weight room and pro coaching. His future in the league is likely at linebacker or maybe even tight end, but regardless, he has exciting potential. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
