Davis Webb Hopes To Convince Giants He Should Be Successor To Eli Manning

The New York Giants drafted Davis Webb with the 87th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Taking a quarterback in the third round for a team that has a 37-year-old quarterback signals a clear sign that the Giants are looking for a quarterback in the near future. Then the unimaginable happened. The New York Giants stunk worse than anyone ever anticipated and found their way to the second overall pick. While Webb took a redshirt year of sorts learning the NFL game, he hopes to convince the new Giants management that he’s the guy they should be building around.

“I had a conversation with Mr. Gettleman and kind of told him how I felt and my abilities as a quarterback,” Webb said via Jordan Raanan of ESPN, last week after a throwing session with a group of college players preparing for the draft. “I think there are enough people around the facility that believe in me and believe in my work ethic and believe in my ability to play quarterback one day for this franchise.

“I want them to know that I’m here to be the best teammate possible and work very hard. I know we have a high pick in the draft. But nobody really knows but two people — that is coach Shurmur and Mr. Gettleman. So there can be a lot of guessing and stuff like that.”

Webb, 23, was a favorite of mine leading up to the draft process a year ago. He was clearly the best quarterback in the draft class in my opinion outside of the electric Deshaun Watson. Considering the Giants have new management with Dave Gettleman and Pat Shurmur leading the charge, it’s impossible to know how they feel about Webb. Passing on the likes of Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, or Josh Allen may just be too tempting to pass on.
