Quarterback Davis Webb began his college career by choosing Texas Tech. It worked at first, with Webb beating out Baker Mayfield, who opted to transfer to Oklahoma. Then came Patrick Mahomes, who won the starting job at Texas Tech. Webb then opted to transfer to Cal.

So Webb has seen the power of the player at the college level, where the decisions are made by the participants in football and not by the teams. He still has no qualms about the NFL’s system of dividing up talent based not on what the player wants but what the teams want. He expressed his position on the matter during a Monday visit to PFT Live.

Webb said plenty more about his preparation for the NFL, his desire to get to offseason workouts as soon as possible, and his interest in eventually becoming a coach. Through it all, a strong love of the sport came through. Which should make him more attractive to the teams that are considering him.

The Chiefs, Jets, and Seahawks have brought him in for a visit, and the 49ers have worked him out. Webb said that more information about other visits and workouts will be coming later in the week.

Even later in the week, he’ll have his first NFL team. And he’ll quickly get to work for whoever that is.

  1. It would disastrous on many levels if college players selected where they worked, few stars would want to come to locations like Green Bay and Buffalo.

    If the players want to control everything, have them put down the money and time to formulate a league.

    The NFL is a business, and those individual teams must have the right to draft any player they want. In exchange for hard work, a former college player can be set up for life financially. Sounds like a good deal.

  2. Kizer may be ranked ahead of Webb by the draftniks but he could sure learn a thing or two from him

  3. “So Webb has seen the power of the player at the college level, where the decisions are made by the participants in football and not by the teams”. Not entirely true. A college can refuse to release a player from a scholarship if that player chooses certain other colleges. I believe it happens all the time if the player wants to go to a team in the same conference where they will have to face him again. College players are certainly not free agents.

  4. Seen some tape on this guy not a bad quarterback good footwork can feel the pressure roll out the pocket and make the throws doesn’t have a bad arm needs to work on accuracy a little bit but overall not a bad quarterback can see this guy going third round
