Draft Scout Joe Webb News
11/27/13 - --WR Joe Webb (concussion), a key special teams player and No. 5 receiver, suffered a concussion. He also passed the first part of the concussion exam and went through the exertion test on Wednesday. If he's symptom-free on Thursday, he'll be cleared to play.
11/25/13 - --WR Joe Webb (concussion), a key special teams player, suffered a concussion.
10/28/13 - --WR Joe Webb lined up in the shotgun for the first time this season. It's part of the old "Blazer" package the team used some in 2011. Unfortunately for Webb, the play never got run. Right guard Brandon Fusco was flagged for a false start and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave scrapped the play and never went back to it.
07/30/13 - WR Joe Webb looked awful as a quarterback at the end of last season, but he's looking good so far as a receiver at the start of this season. The 6-4, 220-pound Webb was moved from quarterback, where he flopped massively in relief of an injured Christian Ponder in last season's playoff loss in Green Bay, to receiver, where the Vikings originally plugged him in as a rookie sixth-round draft pick out of UAB in 2010. Webb played some receiver in college and at the Senior Bowl, but is still very raw when it comes to route-running and other nuances of the position. The good news is he has thorough knowledge of the entire offense, has excellent hands and is on a team starving for depth at receiver.
01/09/13 - QB Joe Webb's play was so horrendous that coach Leslie Frazier left the door ajar for a change at backup quarterback. It could be McLeod Bethel-Thompson eventually. He's a first-year player with a strong arm that the team loves, but he didn't play this season.
