Corey Jonas Webster (born March 2, 1982 in Vacherie, Louisiana) is an American football cornerback in the National Football League who plays for the New York Giants. He was drafted in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft out of Louisiana State University.

Webster attended St. James High School in North Vacherie, Louisiana and was a two sport star in both football and basketball. He was an all state quarterback wearing jersey #1 for the Wildcats football team and an all state guard wearing jersey #11 for the basketball team. He was recruited as a wide receiver coming out of high school but was later asked to play cornerback at LSU by then coach Nick Saban.

In 2007, Webster was limited to special teams duty or even inactive after starting the first few weeks after what was seen as a widely poor performance in the Giants opening weeks of the season. Later on in the season, he had a good game against the Buffalo Bills in week 16, which was a precursor to his playoff success. He had an interception and a touchdown against the Bills. In the Wild Card Playoff game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he intercepted Jeff Garcia in the endzone. He also recovered a fumble by Buccaneers returner Micheal Spurlock at the beginning of the second half. This turnover set up a Giant field goal. In the NFC divisional Playoff game, he came up with near shutdown defense on All-Pro Terrell Owens. He also made what turned out to be the game-winning interception against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game, sending the Giants to Super Bowl XLII.
