Future Watch: Davis Webb Rookie Football Cards, Giants –Davis Webb was selected by the New York Giants with the 87th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. With Eli Manning sitting in front of him his wait could have been lengthy. Then the Giants benched Manning (after a record 210-consecutive starts), then they fired the coach. Now Manning is still the starter and Webb is still waiting for his chance.
Hailing from Prosper, Texas the 6-5, 229-pound quarterback made a name for himself at Texas Tech. In his first season, he had an illness that caused him to lose 40 pounds. He alternated starts at QB. He did throw a game-winning TD against TCU that season and 415 yards and three touchdowns against Iowa State were regular-season highlights. He lit up the Holiday Bowl with 403 yards passing and four touchdowns tying a record for that bowl. He walked away with the win and MVP honors.
In 2014, Webb was the starter and a potential Heisman Trophy candidate but after eight games he suffered a season-ending injury.
In 2015, Webb was stuck behind Pat Mahomes (Chiefs draft pick) so he agreed to transfer to the University of Colorado-Boulder after completing his classes. To Webb’s credit he finished out his degree, graduated, and then left for greener pastures. As it turns out it wasn’t Colorado it turned out to be the University of California. Something better came along.
In 12 games for California he threw for 4,295 yards, 37 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Considering all that happened, getting drafted in the third round showed he was still on teams’ radar.
Webb has a Donruss Rated Rookie card in Elite, he also has cards in Certified, Prizm and Origins to name a few.
Here’s Webb’s first NFL throw:
