If the answer is "probably nobody", then we will not know who would have been the better pick until later, and maybe not until next offseason.
Webster was not drafted to start this year unless there are a rash of injuries, and God help us if there are, but rather be ST's and maybe ease into a contributing role as the season progresses.
So based on this thesis, the coaches think Webster is the better long-term prospect that they just didn't want to leave to chance. I trust the coaches & Elway more on this than any draft guru.
