The Vikings used their 6th round (199th overall) pick on former UAB QB Joe Webb. A lot of speculation has gone into the 2010 NFL Draft in regard to the Vikings selecting a QB and they have now officially chosen that route.
Webb, a 6-3, 223-pounder, was a 2-year starter at UAB where he passed for more than 2,000 yards and rushed for over 1,000 in both the 2008 and 2009 seasons.
Here is the NFL.com analysis of Webb: “Webb has ideal height and bulk for the next level. Has very good speed for the quarterback position and can make plays outside the pocket. Is a durable, versatile performer who could contribute at other spots. Possesses excellent arm strength. Can drive the ball downfield and make all the throws. Shows good accuracy at times on the deep ball. Decision-making must improve. Forces the ball into dangerous spots. Does not scan the field or move through his progressions. Likely to struggle consistently making reads against NFL schemes. Must improve footwork and drop mechanics. Does not exhibit enough accuracy and can become wild. Does not have a quick release and throwing mechanics need polish.”
