			NFL Draft stock report: Cal’s Davis Webb emerges as potential first rounder

At least six players with Bay Area ties — players who grew up in the region or attended college here — could be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft.

With the event one week away, we take stock of their draft position: Who’s rising and falling, possible landing spots and reaction from draft analysts.

The six-part series, which began with a look at Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey, continues with Cal quarterback Davis Webb.

Stock report: Rising.

Webb played just one season in Berkeley and wasn’t highly efficient (12 interceptions). But he impressed at the Senior Bowl and maintained the momentum through the NFL Combine. Once projected as a fourth- or fifth-round pick, he’s now viewed as a lock for the top-three rounds. Given that teams often reach for quarterbacks — such is the need for quality play at the position — it would come as little surprise if Webb is off the board late in the first or early in the second.

Could go as high as: Late first round.

Could go as low as: Early third round.

What they’re saying: “He had a very good week of practice at the Senior Bowl, not only on the field,” ESPN analyst and former Raiders coach Jon Gruden said. “I think he proved to people that he can adapt quickly and learn. He’ll be in the conversation for a lot of these teams for the first two or three rounds.”

Potential landing spots: Arizona, New Orleans and Green Bay. Teams in need of an eventual replacement for 30-something franchise quarterbacks might take a hard look at Webb in the second or third round. And don’t discount the possibility of the 49ers snatching him up in round two and let him learn next season behind Brian Hoyer. The transition from the Bear Raid will take time, as it has for former Cal star Jared Goff.

Bottom line: “I love the size and his ability to see the field; he can make all the throws,” ESPN’s Mel Kiper said. “It’s just the accuracy. I saw some throws that left you scratching your head. Some people think he could go (in the) second round. I would not think about Davis Webb that early. On my list, he’d be a little overrated. He can definitely spin it. I just think the system and the lack of great accuracy are the reasons I’m not as high on him.”
