Davis Webb Wonderlic Test Score

Many expected Davis Webb to be the top draft pick in the 2017 NFL draft. While that did not happen, Webb does show some promise in the NFL. While playing behind Eli Manning for the NY Giants, Webb will likely have a year or two to develop into his next role as a starter.

His Wonderlic test score was one of the most anticipated scores to be released from the NFL Scouting Combine. Davis Webb scored a 25 on the Wonderlic test. What does that say about Davis Webb and his potential skill at the quarterback position? Not a whole lot, really.

Quarterbacks average about a 24 on the Wonderlic test, and while Davis Webb scored above average it is certainly nothing to brag about. Most likely Davis Webb’s Wonderlic score of 24 did not affect his draft value or position, and did not gather a whole lot of attention from scouts and GM leading up to the NFL draft.

About Davis Webb

 

Like Jared Goff, Davis Webb was a product of Cal. He was a one year starter after transferring from Texas Tech, and worked in the same offensive system as Jared Goff. He is bigger, has a stronger arm and is more athletic than Goff but has not gotten the same attention Goff got a year ago due to his short time at Cal.

Davis Webb caught the eye of many at the Reese’s Senior Bowl by putting up some impressive stats – he went 11/16 on completions, and threw for 165 yards and a touchdown.

Deshaun Watson┬ádid not attend the 2017 Senior Bowl and missed out on all the attention that players tend to get at the game. The senior bowl is considered by many as the NFL Combine warmup, as it has practice sessions that allows players to showcase their abilities. In Webb’s case, he exceeded expectations at the Senior Bowl and impressed many scouts with his talents.

The question on many people’s mind is whether or not Davis will continue to be a backup or if he will one day be a starter – for the NY Giants or for any other team. If Eli Manning gets injured, under-preforms, or retires, Davis Webb will be the next man up.

About the Wonderlic

Every year at the NFL Scouting Combine since the 1970s the Wonderlic test has been administered to all participants. The test is a 50 question cognitive ability test that allows scouts to compare results to other position players along with players from previous draft years.

The test is given to all position players, but Wonderlic test results of quarterbacks are paid most attention to by the media. Test takers are only given 12 minutes to complete the entire test, which means that both speed and accuracy are critical for getting a good Wonderlic test score. Davis Webb’s Wonderlic score will be much anticipated along with other quarterbacks expected to go in the 2017 NFL draft. You can see how well you’ll fare on the Wonderlic test:
