    Joe Webb-WR- Player Mar. 17 - 5:03 pm et

    UAB QB/WR Joe Webb ran forty-yard dash times of 4.44 and 4.45 at the Blazers' Pro Day.

    The 2009 C-USA Player of the Year was also off the charts in the broad jump (11'5") and vertical (42.5") while bench pressing 225 pounds 21 times. He is converting from college QB into NFL wideout. Webb is raw, but his transition will be be helped by monstrous 10 3/4-inch hands and ideal size (6'3/223).

    also Ryan Matthews had a good workout too;
    Ryan Mathews-RB- Player Mar. 17 - 4:48 pm et

    Fresno State RB Ryan Mathews ran in the mid-4.4 range at the Bulldogs' Wednesday Pro Day.

    The time is a repeat of Mathews' 4.45 at the Combine, although Wednesday's workout was reportedly on a soggy field. Mathews, emerging as a surefire first-round pick, figures to be considered by Houston at No. 20 overall and New England at No. 22. We don't see him lasting to the Chargers (No. 28).

    I really like Webb. He didn't look half bad at the Senior Bowl playing WR.

    01.30.10 - Webb has impressed scouts with his ability to adapt to wide receiver. One scout said Webb could "work his way into being drafted. ... He's so versatile. He's played quarterback, so he could take some snaps there. I think teams are going to be intrigued with Joe. He's real raw, but he's got good size, a good body, his speed is good enough ... the Senior Bowl has been very good for Joe Webb." – The Birmingham News

    Senior Bowl: Joe Webb (UAB): Webb consistently caught the ball too close to his body on drills where he ran dig routes or deep outs. He also rounded off his breaks or tipped of his routes with enough frequency that he didn’t have an impressive showing. – Draft Guys (01.26.10)

    01.26.10 - The South team has a quarterback that NFL teams wanted to see play another position at the Senior Bowl. No, it’s not Tim Tebow — it’s UAB’s Joe Webb. The standout athlete, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 220 pounds, has moved to receiver this week after a record-setting career with the Blazers. “I took it as a challenge,” Webb said when asked about making the move. “I’m always looking for a challenge. It’s a great opportunity for me to come out here and show my skills at wideout.” – Mobile Press-Register

    01.12.10 - Joe Webb will get a chance to show NFL scouts his skills at wide receiver during the Senior Bowl. The dynamic UAB quarterback said he got word from his agent, Pat Dye Jr., on Monday night that he received the invitation to play in the Jan. 30 game in Mobile. He quickly accepted the invitation to show the scouts what he can do at receiver. “My agent said they know what I can do at quarterback, they want to see what I can do as a receiver,” said the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Webb, who was the first NCAA Division I-A quarterback to throw for at least 2,000 yards and rush for at least 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. Webb, a Birmingham natiive, who graduated in December from UAB, is currently working out with Competitive Edge Sports in Atlanta. – Birmingham News

    2009: Joe Webb is second in all of college football in rushing yards, total yards, and passing efficiency. The 6’4, 220 UAB quarterback has demonstrated tremendous ability running, and passing the ball. Head coach Neil Calloway is willing to put Webb up there with stars such as Bo Jackson, Chris Samuels, and Matthew Stafford. Webb, born and raised in Birmingham, even stiff-armed a Rice defender’s helmet off in his first game of the season. The senior has won four of his five career starts for the Blazers.

    03/12/2010 - "It was a phenomenal workout, but I kind of expected it," said Dye, who said feedback from NFL teams has been very positive. "They love his athleticism, his body, his speed and quickness, his explosiveness. But it's a big move even to receiver if you're making it in college, much less the highest level there is." The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Webb will create a quandary for NFL teams when the draft rolls around. He has a quarterback pedigree, receiver speed and the size of a small tight end. He could wind up at receiver, tight end, H-back or wildcat quarterback. "That gives him added value," Dye said. Former UAB kicker Jake Arians, the sideline reporter on Blazers football radiocasts, has been around the NFL most of his life. Dad Bruce is the offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers. "There's not a receiver in an NFL locker room who looks better than that," he said as Webb worked out "Value wise, there won't be a better pick." While Webb missed out on a combine invitation, he did have an impressive workout at the Senior Bowl in January. He benched pressed 225 pounds for 21 reps -- only one other receiver turned in 20 reps. And his hands were measured as the second largest at the game behind Alabama's Terrence Cody. Working out with former UAB quarterback Darrell Hackney Thursday, Webb showed good hands, but got chastised occasionally for his lack of experience running routes. That, of course, is something most NFL teams expect going in. Webb worked out with a number of teammates, but one NFL prospect was noticeable by his absence. Center Jake Seitz was held out of workouts because of a nagging chest muscle pull. - Doug Segrest, The Birmingham News

    Isiah Stanback part duh?

    Seriously, I like the idea of a guy like that who we can take lower and then develop for a year. Doubt many WRs would play much this first year anyway.
