The Way We Hear It: These 4 NFL Draft prospects are overrated

California quarterback Davis Webb: We get the growing intrigue: Webb has prototypical size, arguably the strongest arm in this year’s class and his Combine numbers reflect an above-average athlete for the position. He’s also sharp and clearly confident in his ability — two key traits for any successful quarterback. We just can’t comprehend how Webb has been garnering Round 1 buzz. His workout numbers say he’s athletic; his film reflects a player who struggles to navigate the pocket and evade the rush. His rocket-launching right arm is nothing if not erratic, as evidenced by an uneven week of Senior Bowl practices and his sub-62 percent career accuracy rate despite playing in historically high-percentage passing attacks, first in Lubbock, then at Cal.
