Former Dolphins Pro Bowl offensive tackle Richmond Webb, who lives in Houston, said he considered himself “blessed” Friday, four days after wading through water above his waist to a boat that carried his family to safety following Hurricane Harvey.

Webb, the Dolphins’ first-round pick out of Texas A&M in 1990, estimated the water level inside his house was 2 feet deep at its peak.

“The material stuff we won’t be able to replace, but at the end of the day, God still blessed us to be here,” Webb told The Post. “This is a temporary situation, but we’ll get through it. We’re going to be all right.”

Webb said his family was awakened at 2:30 Monday morning to find about a foot of water in the house. By 10:30, they were evacuating as the level outside rose above waist level for the 6-foot-6 Webb.
