Recent News's Daniel Jeremiah spoke with an NFL executive who believes Cal's Davis Webb will end up being the top QB in the 2017 class.
We've made it here and it is only mid-February. Webb played one season at Cal after transferring from Texas Tech, playing in a similar Bear Raid offense as Jared Goff, last year's No. 1 pick. Webb has a strong arm. We've concluded the positive portion of his evaluation. Feb 17 - 10:25 AM

An NFC exec told MMQB that five quarterbacks could go in the top two-rounds.

"It’s a good quarterback class," said our NFC exec. "Realistically, all five of those guys go in the first two rounds." Outside of Deshaun Watson, Mitch Trubisky and DeShone Kizer, he's referring to Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes and Cal's Davis Webb. MMQB's Albert Breer notes that five QBs have gone in the top two rounds five times (2014, ’12, ’11, ’07, ’06) since 2000, with more than five going once (2011).

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah believes Cal QB Davis Webb and Pitt QB Nathan Peterman could both be second round picks.

Specifically, Jeremiah used the phrase "wouldn't be shocked" when bringing up this outcome. This is a bit rich for us. Peterman and Webb both had their moments during Senior Bowl week, but we don't think either crack the top four passers in the NFL Draft or are second round talents in a vacuum. Rotoworld's Josh Norris spoke with a director of college scouting during East-West Shrine week who was interested in Peterman and liked the talent.

Cal QB Davis Webb was named the Most Outstanding Player of Saturday's Senior Bowl.

Webb was sharp throughout, completing 11-of-16 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a perfectly lofted 39-yard toss to Texas A&M WR Josh Reynolds in the second quarter. During the practice week, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline notes, the 6-foot-5, 209-pound Webb was far from perfect. Wrote the analyst, "Webb made incremental improvements as the week went on, but left Mobile as he entered it -- as a strong-armed passer who doesn’t always know where the ball is going." He is a likely selection for Day 3 of the draft, though in a thin quarterback class he could potentially brush up against Day 2.

The Giants met with Cal QB Davis Webb.

We like where their head is. If you're looking for a developmental prospect behind Eli Manning, you could do worse this year than to tab Webb on Day 3. The former Golden Bears star has a great frame and a big arm. "With his over-the-top release and flick of the wrist to generate good rotation upon delivery, Webb was able to put the ball in good spots and drive down the field with proper velocity," noted the Drafster. Webb faces a big acclimation process in coming over from the wide-open "Bear Raid" system.

An NFL executive singled out Cal senior QB Davis Webb as the sleeper quarterback of the class.

The exec answered Webb when asked which quarterback in this class could be the next Dak Prescott, saying: "This is a tough one. I think Webb will go earlier than people think. When you really study him, he's pretty good. I think he'll gain some ground with a good Senior Bowl, too. He might not make it to the middle rounds." Webb threw for 4,295 yards with a 37/12 TD/INT ratio in 12 games this season.
Jan 6 - 3:07 PM

Cal senior QB Davis Webb completed 32 of 48 attempts for 301 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 36-10 win over UCLA.

Cal finishes the season 5-7, while UCLA closes the year 4-8. We aren't calling Webb No. 1 pick material, but it is interesting to note that the offense did not fall off a cliff after Jared Goff's departure. Webb has accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl.

Cal senior QB Davis Webb completed 32-of-48 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's win over UCLA.

This wasn't one of Webb's flashier games this season, but he got the job done nonetheless. This was the 6-foot-5, 209-pound senior's 10th game with at least 300 yards passing. His superlative work will fall in vain, though, as Cal has cratered out with a five-game losing streak that will deprive them of potential bowl glory. Webb is off to the NFL Draft, now, having thrown for 4,295 yards with a 37/12 TD/INT ratio in 12 games this season.

Cal senior QB Davis Webb completed 34-of-57 passes for 393 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 45-31 loss to Stanford.

Webb hooked up with Chad Hansen for scores in the first and fourth quarters. He has surpassed 300 yards passing in eight of 11 games this season. For the campaign as a whole, the 6-foot-5, 209-pound senior has thrown for 3,994 yards with a 35/12 TD/INT ratio. His has been a statistically successful campaign, but it hasn't led to many wins. With Saturday's defeat, Cal fell to 4-7. Their final game of the season will come against UCLA.

Cal senior QB Davis Webb turned in a relatively quiet evening in Thursday's 45-24 loss to USC, completing 34-of-53 passes for 333 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Fine yardage total for Webb, but the game as a whole was not one of his sharper performances. No. 1 WR Chad Hansen's absence due to a nagging leg injury didn't help the cause. Thursday's two-touchdown performance marked just the second time in eight games this season that the 6-foot-5, 209-pound Webb has failed to throw for at least three touchdowns. For the season as a whole, the fantasy dynamo has thrown for 2,914 yards (62.4% completions) with a beefy 29/8 TD/INT ratio.

Cal senior QB Davis Webb completed 42-of-61 passes for 325 yards and five touchdowns in Friday's 52-49 double-overtime win over Oregon.

Webb was coming off his worst performance of the season, throwing for just 113 yards in a loss to Oregon State. He injured his hand in that one, too. After a bye week to rest up, though, he came out like gangbusters against Oregon. He tossed four of his five touchdown passes before halftime. The 6-foot-5, 209-pound senior has now notched five touchdown tosses in three of seven games. For the season as a whole, he has thrown for 2,581 yards with a 27/7 TD/INT ratio.

Cal HC Sonny Dykes said that he expects senior QB Davis Webb (hand) to start against Oregon on Friday.

Webb initially injured his hand in a Week 6 loss to Oregon State. It did not prevent him from finishing the game and with a bye week between that contest and Friday's showdown with the Ducks, he has had a fair amount of time to heal up. "He looks good," Dykes said of the 6-foot-5, 209-pounder. "I don't see any lingering effect at all. We were probably going to give him a couple of days off anyway to let his arm rest." Webb ranks among the top three in the nation in terms of both passing yardage (2,256 yards) and touchdown passes (22). Fantasy owners should feel confident installing the gunslinger in their lineups in advance of Friday's goldmine-of-a-match-up vs. Oregon.

An NFL personnel executive says Cal senior QB Davis Webb is "bigger than (Jared) Goff and he has a much better arm."

"I didn't have high expectations for Webb. I thought he would be just a system type guy, considering where he came from," the exec said. "After studying him, I was shocked. He's really good. He's bigger than (Jared) Goff and he has a much better arm. He makes some rare throws." analyst Lance Zierlein took in the 6-foot-5, 209-pound Webb's performance against Texas this year and had this to say about the comparison: "I think it's very similar. I think Goff had a good arm, I didn't think it was a great arm. He had plenty for an NFL arm. Webb can throw that deep ball pretty well. From the eyeball test, their arms are comparable." Goff, of course, was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. Webb boasts a TD/INT ratio of 22/7.

Cal senior QB Davis Webb (hand) did not participate in practice on Tuesday.

With Cal off on bye this coming weekend, there is no pressing need for Webb to practice at this juncture. The 6-foot-5, 209-pound senior injured his hand in the first half of Saturday's overtime loss to Oregon State, but managed to play the entire game. He was noticeably off in his passing, ultimately finishing with a season-low 113 yards through the air. The Golden Bears' next game will come against Oregon on October 21. For the sake of fantasy owners, we hope Webb is healthy for that one. He could post huge numbers against a Ducks team that has played dead-in-the-water ball for most of the season.
