Davis Webb adds Chiefs to list of visits

Cal quarterback Davis Webb will be making another stop on Monday before visiting the Jets on Tuesday.

Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that Webb will visit with the Chiefs. Webb, who said he’s heard from double-digit teams that he’s a first-round pick, has also worked out for the 49ers and visited with the Seahawks during his pre-draft tour of the league.

Webb’s visit continues an offseason that’s seen the Chiefs spend time with the top quarterback prospects in this year’s draft class. They aren’t expected to push Alex Smith aside this season, but he is scheduled for a $20.6 million cap hit in 2018 and there would seem to be a pretty good chance that they’ll take someone to give themselves an option should they decide to move in a different direction when 2017 comes to an end.

There are several other teams in a similar boat, which should make watching where the quarterbacks fall one of the leading storylines of the first few rounds of the draft later this month.

  1. Chiefs haven’t drafted and developed a top-tier QB. Ever.

    That said, maybe this is the year.

  2. Yep, my Chiefs have done a terrible job of developing qb’s, they haven’t really drafted anyone of note over the years. From Brodie Croyle to Matt Blundin, the qb’s we have drafted have been some real winners.

    They Did sign Rich Gannon and resurrect his career enough so he could go to Oakland and be MVP of the league. We kept Elvis GrBak of course, because, why not.

    I am hoping we draft one of the top 5 qb’s in this draft, preferably Watson or mahomes, but I trust Andy Reid’s eye for qb. We will need one of these guys to take over for Alex Smith next year.
