- Senior Bowl director Phil Savage mentions that the talk of Cal QB Davis Webb being a potential first-round pick is “legit.”
- Jason Cole of B/R previously reported that there’s a “growing sense” that Webb could end up being a first-round pick in this year’s draft.
- According to Cole, it’s possible a team could make a move up into the latter portion of round one to get Webb, as this would give them a fifth-year option on his rookie contract.
- Cole points to Webb’s size and arm strength as being two attributes that have impressed NFL teams.
- The Jets, Chiefs and Chargers are among a number of teams that have interviews scheduled with Webb and the Buccaneers and Ravens also showing some interest, according to Cole.
An AFC receivers coach offered a comp of Anquan Boldin for USC WR JuJu Smith-Schuster.
“I would be interested to see where other teams have JuJu (Smith-Schuster) because I absolutely love him,” the coach said, via NFL.com. “He reminds me so much of Anquan Boldin the way he creates space for himself and how physical he is after the catch. He will end up being as good or better than those receivers they are mentioning in the first round.”
Pat McManamon of ESPN mentions that the recent comments from Browns HC Hue Jackson could lead credence to the belief that Alabama TE O.J. Howard is on their short list of potential first-round targets.
“That position needs to upgrade, whether we do that with the guys that are there and continue to get better or if there’s somebody in the draft that can come in and help our football team,” Jackson said.
