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.

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."

Cal QB Davis is a "legitimate" second round possibility, according to the MMQB's Emily Kaplan.

"And it’s feasible that, come the last weekend in April, he will be billed as someone’s quarterback of the future," Kaplan adds. The column adds context to Weeb's evolution as a player, discussing his 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. football and school workday, along with traveling to the Senior Bowl early to adjust his internal clock. We understand he has a strong arm and played in the same offense Jared Goff did (which might give teams pause), but Webb is closer to Tom Savage, Sean Mannion and Garrett Gilbert in terms of a draft process prospect generating more attention than his play deserves.

The MMQB's Albert Breer mentioned Cal's Davis Webb as one of five QBs who has a chance of being selected in the first round.

We would be more than stunned if this happens. Webb is not close to being ready for the NFL. He was arguably the best quarterback at the Senior Bowl... but the competition was less than ideal. Webb has a big arm, but has only played out of the Air Raid system, a system with a playbook of five to seven concepts that passers master (see Jared Goff). Even if it is not a first round selection, Webb seems destined for a second day pick.

Cal QB Davis Webb said that he can "throw the ball better than anyone."

Davis will try to put his money where his mouth is during Combine drills on Saturday. There are concerns about his throwing mechanics and footwork that still need to be ironed out, but NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah spoke with one executive in mid-February who believes that Webb has the upside to be the best quarterback in this draft class.
Mar 3 - 5:42 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline notes that Cal QB Davis Webb "needs to improve his throwing fundamentals and consistently deliver the ball with proper footwork."

Pauline refers to Webb as "relatively accurate" and believes that with better fundamentals he could tighten up that aspect of his game. The analyst likes what he sees from the Cal product in terms of his ability to play distributor. There is plenty of room for upward draft stock mobility at a thin, somewhat muddled position should Webb impress in tests and interviews at the NFL Scouting Combine.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested Cal's Davis Webb is considered a top 5 QB in the draft.

Webb will go through a near complete workout at the NFL Combine. Webb seems to be the third day quarterback "climbing" boards early in the process. There is one every day. Webb looked solid in comparison to other Senior Bow quarterbacks, but that isn't a strong compliment. One executive recently told Daniel Jeremiah that Webb will be the top quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft. Webb transferred to Cal after losing out to Pat Mahomes at Texas Tech.

NFL.com'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.

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.

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.
