QB Search Player Profile: Davis Webb

*This is part eight of a 10 part series where we will take a look at the Cleveland Browns options for the elusive quarterback of the future.

Name: Davis Webb

Height: 6’5″

Weight: 229 pounds

Throws: Right

School: Cal

NFL Team: N/A

Draft Spot or Projection: 2nd round- 4th round

Strengths: Great size at 6’5″…throws ball with accuracy and from high release point…decent athlete…has ability to roll out…has patience in the pocket…makes some good decisions…poised kid, started at Texas Tech and Cal…

Weaknesses: Panics in the face of the rush…most of his offense was throws within 10 yards…smaller hands for his size…arm is not overly strong…seems to make decisions where the ball is headed before getting to the line and stays with it even when it is not open…needs help with mechanics as he will tend to let the ball sail…does not anticipate long throws well…

Summary: Webb has great size and seems to be a coachable kid. Has all the ability to be a very good NFL quarterback with the proper coaching, but he is going to be a project. As a second round or later prospect, he could be worth the time and patience it is going to take. He is the best of the bunch after the top four quarterbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft.
