Giants add Davis Webb

Amid a buzz that former Cal quarterback Davis Webb could have crashed round one, he lasted until round three. And he ended up on the depth chart in New York.

The Giants have made Webb the 87th pick in the draft.

He becomes the potential replacement to Eli Manning, whenever Eli Manning will decide to retire. (Or when the Giants will decide to retire him.)

Webb arrives from Cal. He transferred to Berkeley after losing the starting job at Texas Tech to Patrick Mahomes. Before that, Webb beat out Baker Mayfield, resulting in Mayfield transferring to Oklahaom.

Webb aspires to be a coach. For now, he’ll be a player with the Giants — and he potentially could become the starter there, in time.

    Davis Webb could be the next Peyton Manning. Definitely an upgrade over Eli.

    Webb immediately becomes the only NFL QB more goofy looking than Eli.

    Webb landed in a great place. Gets to learn from Eli. And if he does see time this year, with those pass-catchers, it’ll help me grow a lot

    The 49ers tried him out and probably wanted to draft him, but the Giants took him first.

    Yet another backup QB for the Giants this time in the third round. Jerry Reese and Marc Ross, after the 1st and 2nd rounds always seems lost.

    He doesn’t throw enough interceptions to replace Eli.

    I like this move. The Giants weren’t upgrading ANYWHERE at that point in the third round. Take a flyer on a guy like this. And say what you want about Eli, but he is a great guy to sit behind and learn. Hopefully the kid turns into something.

    Webb is the best QB in this year’s draft. Can’t believe he didn’t go sooner. Great pickup for the Giants, but will his contract run out before Eli retires?
