Strengths:

  • Short to intermediate accuracy
  • Rhythm passer
  • High release point
  • Poise

Analysis: Davis Webb has been a starter at two power-five conferences (Texas Tech and Cal). At 6’5, he stands tall in the pocket with a high release point, your prototypical rhythm passer. He can drive it with accuracy between hashes when allowed to sling from a clean pocket.¬†Expedites release with compact delivery when blitzed. Functional poise with blitz in his face. Slides to create cleaner platform to launch from when pocket gets noisy. Internal clock is operational. Has feel for when ball has been in his hands too long and will look to release it.

Weaknesses:

  • Throw on the run
  • Progressions
  • Lacks anticipation
  • Deep ball accuracy
  • Robotic

Analysis: On tape, Davis Webb doesn’t ‘wow’ you. He is a robotic quarterback who fails to go through his progressions. In both offenses he commanded in college, they were both heavy spread concepts that told Webb where to go with the ball. He was ‘programmed’ on where the ball needed to be rather than looking safeties off, reading coverage’s and going through your basic progression work.¬†Inconsistent velocity to sideline causes nose of ball to dip. Drive throws sometime sail. Has slow setup in pocket with excessive pre-release steps. Cornerbacks contest too many throws due to lack of anticipation. Timing passes must come out sooner. Plagued by accuracy issues and decision-making outside the numbers on both intermediate and deep throws. Five of his 12 interceptions in 2016 were along deep sidelines due to under-throws and failure to read safety help. Touch and placement are an issue when forced to leave the pocket. Not a factor as a scrambler.
