Cal QB Davis Webb not lacking confidence: ‘Can throw the ball better than anybody’

By Jesse Reed

Cal quarterback Davis Webb must have had a giantess of a mother, and, like Uncle Rico, he can throw the ball over them mountains.

Speaking with media members at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, the quarterback had a gem of a quote that NFL teams will likely treasure, as it shows off his brash confidence.

Heck, we treasure it, too, for totally different reasons.

This is just great.

We do feel for his poor mother, however, who must have gone through hell to have delivered such a massive baby.

In all seriousness, Webb’s comment about his size is in direct response to people wondering if he is big enough for the pro game. He’s been seen by some as a potential dark horse franchise passer, though with none of the fanfare of the man he backed up last year at Texas Tech, Patrick Mahomes II.

In 2016 playing for the Bears, Webb passed for 4,295 yards with 37 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions, completing 61.6 percent of his passes. He’s an intriguing prospect who could potentially develop his skills to perform at a high level in┬áthe pro game. All it will take is the right coach and situation, perhaps, and we’ll be watching him closely in the years to come to see what happens next.
