Giants selected Cal QB Davis Webb with the No. 87 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.
Beginning to plan for a post-Eli Manning future, the Giants are taking a flier on a player some people considered a first-round dark horse. Webb (6’5/229) transferred to Cal after he was beaten out by Patrick Mahomes at Texas Tech, playing one year and going 5-7 with a 61.6% completion rate, 6.9 YPA, and 37:12 TD-to-INT ratio. Webb is an above-average athlete with 79th-percentile SPARQ results, although he presented little to no scrambling threat in college. Compared to Nick Foles by Rookie Scouting Portfolio’s Matt Waldman, Webb struggled with ball location and showed erratic pocket presence on tape. Webb "looks the part" but probably starter-caliber passing skills and does not extend plays. Apr 28 - 10:45 PM

According to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, the Los Angeles Chargers and New York Jets are each trying to trade up to take Cal QB Davis Webb.

This report lines up closely with ESPN's Adam Schefter dispatch from earlier in the day that the Chargers and Jets -- in addition to the Bucs -- have talked to the Packers about moving up to acquire the No. 33 overall pick. Pauline additionally reports that the four teams picking behind Green Bay -- the Seahawks, Jags, Bears and Rams -- are also open to moving down the board.

An NFL scout says Cal QB Davis Webb "has Dak-like intangibles."

Webb's stock is surging at the right time. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport "wouldn't be surprised to see a team trade back into round 1" for Webb, a sentiment we've read on multiple occasions over the past 10 days. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reported Tuesday that if the Browns don't take UNC's Mitchell Trubisky in Round 1, Webb is "likely to be the target" with the No. 33 selection.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that if the Browns don't take UNC's Mitchell Trubisky in Round 1, Cal QB Davis Webb is "likely to be the target" with the No. 33 selection.

Pauline has been on the Davis Webb beat in recent days, reporting on Tuesday that the Jets, Saints, Chargers and Cardinals have shown the "greatest interest" in Webb. Cleveland has reportedly been working the phones hard over the past few days to move up from No. 12 to take Trubisky. If that plans falls through, Webb may just be Option B.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hears that the teams showing the "greatest interest" in Cal QB Davis Webb are the Jets, Saints, Chargers and Cardinals.

Pauline believes that Webb will be drafted by the middle of Round 2, which sounds about right to us, though it is not out of the realm of possibility that he could even see a selection near the end of Round 1. Round 2 is the safe bet, here. Webb met with the Jets (as well as the Chargers) last week. The Seahawks also hosted him for a visit earlier this month, but they have needs above and beyond a developmental quarterback prospect.

An anonymous NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that Cal QB Davis Webb's evaluation is tricky because "watching (Cal’s Jared) Goff last year ... puts the fear of God in you."

"But he has the potential to be a starter," the scout said of Webb. "Looks like an NFL quarterback." Webb edged Baker Mayfield for the starting QB job at Texas Tech in 2014, but then lost his job to Pat Mahomes a year later. "He’s got a lot of things you want," another scout said. "He’s big, he can throw it, he moves around good enough, he’s competitive. But nobody really has been successful playing in that offense." A third scout concluded: "He melted as the season went on. Better athlete than people realize. Plays in a junk offense. He could get in the top 50."
Apr 25 - 12:58 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports that Cal QB Davis Webb is meeting with the New York Jets on Monday and will do likewise with the Kansas City Chiefs later in the week.

The Jets had already previously run Webb through a private workout. We have heard both New York and Kansas City linked to various quarterback prospects throughout the process. While the Chiefs could use their No. 27 pick to select Webb in the first round, the Jets are probably looking at him as a potential option when they pick early in the second round, at No. 39.
Apr 17 - 1:20 PM

The Seahawks are hosting Cal QB Davis Webb on a visit Wednesday, according to Ian Rapoport.

Let's talk through this one. Seahawks GM John Schneider took in Pat Mahomes' pro day, possibly to see other TTU prospects. Or we could conclude Schneider is trying to get a closer look on the quarterbacks possibly linked with the Cardinals. Webb is generating first and second round buzz. Somehow.

One NFL personnel executive believes that Clemson QB Deshaun Watson and Cal QB Davis Webb will be the only quarterbacks selected on Day 1 of the draft.

Well that would be a weird combo. Color us surprised if UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is still available at the end of the first round. "I am sticking to my Webb guns," the executive insisted. "He's the second-best QB in this class. I have read the Trubisky and Mahomes buzz. Not sure if I believe it." This came about from an informal poll of five insiders by NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah to gauge just how many quarterbacks might be taken in Round 1. The most optimistic executive forwarded the possibility of four gunslingers going off the board by the end of April 27. Three is probably the safest bet.

Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage reports that "[t]he [Cal QB] Davis Webb talk is legit as far as [the] first round."

Savage relays that he has "had several NFL people tell [him] that [Webb] is the guy they would want to coach." We have heard a consistent bubbling of rumor around the possibility of Webb landing in the first round as the pre-draft process hits its stretch run. At the end of March, Pete Prisco of CBS Sports likewise heard that steam was picking up toward a Day 1 selection. Webb, himself, has said that teams in the double-digits have told him he is a first-round talent. If he isn't swept off the board by the end of Round 1, he will almost certainly find an NFL home early in Round 2.
Apr 7 - 3:36 PM

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco passes along word from the NFL meetings that the first round buzz around Cal QB Davis Webb is picking up.

We've seen the link for a few weeks now, but the momentum does not seem to be slowing down. The initial question was if the league love was coming from one team or multiple, and it seems like the latter is true. Or, perhaps, this is just another example of a "late riser" receiving undeserved hype. Webb transferred to Cal after losing the starting job at Texas Tech. He attended the Senior Bowl and looked closer to average than a first rounder.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo says "the possibility of the Giants taking a QB high next month is stronger than many believe."

"I think we have to start thinking about it," co-owner John Mara said. "I think you always have to look at drafting a quarterback where you can." Compare this to what the Bengals' decision makers said earlier this offseason, that every position was on the table to draft except for quarterback, and the differences are meaningful. The Giants, Saints, Chargers, Cardinals and Chiefs could alter the quarterback market this year.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that due to weather conditions on Cal's pro day, it was difficult to gauge the performance of QB Davis Webb.

Friday's pro day at Cal sounds like an out-and-out nightmare due to rain. Did that stop Webb from being put through a ridiculous set of drills? Absolutely not. Take it away, Mr. Pauline: "Webb missed on a number of throws but as one person told me they asked him to throw NFL passes in conditions that were impossible. Another source on hand said if these were game time conditions no one would be asked to make those throws." Webb's predecessor at Cal, Jared Goff, was asked to dunk balls in water to test his ability to throw with a wet ball on pro day a year ago. Mother Nature looks like it took care of that for Webb. The quarterback has reportedly been told by at least 10 teams that they view him as a first-team talent.
Mar 25 - 2:37 PM

Cal QB Davis Webb told CBS Sports' Sean Wagner-McGough that "numerous" teams have been telling him that he is a first-round talent.

Wagner-McGough clarifies that "numerous" label by writing that we are talking a double-digit number of teams. It is important to note that simply being told that he is a first-round talent does not guarantee a first-round pick. However, at the very least, the 6-foot-5, 209-pounder should probably be considered a Day 1 sleeper at this juncture. An AFC area scout told NFL Media's Lance Zierlein that he believes that Webb possesses the football intelligence to undo some bad habits should he land with the right team.
Mar 24 - 6:33 PM

An AFC area scout said that Cal QB Davis Webb "has enough between the ears to unlearn some of his bad habits and start to get things right."

"I see another Nick Foles if you give him time to develop," the scout said. If that comparison does not get you jazzed for the Cal gunslinger, then you might want to look away from the one that NFL Media's Lance Zierlein tagged him with. Zierlein comps him to one Mr. Brock Osweiler. While Webb could climb as high as the second round come the draft, Zierlein has serious doubts about his NFL outlook, writing that "his decision-making and accuracy issues beyond 10 yards is a big red flag that might be tough to overcome in the NFL."
