Projected Round
raduate transfer from Texas Tech who started his first two seasons with the Red Raiders before leaving for Cal before the 2016 season. Earned Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 honors as a senior, completing 61.6 percent of his passes for 4,295 yards, 37 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, with the yardage ranking sixth nationally and the touchdowns eighth. Completed 61.4 percent of his passes in his three years at Texas Tech, throwing for 5,557 yards, 46 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. Set numerous Big 12 freshman records in 2013, including pass yards in a game and completions in a game.
Tall, big-armed passer coming off a career campaign. Patient in the pocket, spreads the ball around and uses all his targets. Throws with a fluid, over-the-top delivery, delivers a catchable pass and puts air under the ball letting receivers run to the throw. Has an NFL arm, powers the ball downfield and gets passes through the tight spots. Stands in and takes a big hit in order to get the throw away. Remains poised under the rush, has excellent pocket stature and gets the ball away with defenders draped on him. Effectively sets up screen throws, displays the ability to get outside the pocket and is accurate throwing on the move. Effective with his corner or fade patterns. For the most part makes good decisions and does not force the ball into covered targets.
Does a bit of gathering and takes a while to get the ball out of his hand. Does not consistently release the ball with proper footwork, which results in errant passes. Needs to improve his pass placement down the flanks, as he’s often high of the mark. Does not sense the backside pressure.
Webb was a solid signal caller on the college level and offers NFL dimensions as well as a next-level arm. He needs to brush up his mechanics but if coached properly, Webb offers starting potential at the next level.
