Joe Webb spent the last two years as the starting quarterback at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), amassing 2,299 yards and 21 touchdowns through the air and 1,619 yards and 11 TDs on the ground in 2009. But Webb will attempt to make it in the NFL as a wide receiver.
Webb (6-foot-2 3/4, 223 pounds) ran 4.45 and 4.44-seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 42.5-inch vertical leap, 11-foot, 5-inch broad jump (besting any combine participant by five inches), 4.04 short shuttle and a 6.71 three-cone drill. His arms measured in at 33 5/8 inches and he completed 21 bench press repetitions of 225 pounds.
Former NFL quarterback Darrell Hackney threw to Webb while Steelers wide receivers coach Scottie Montgomery observed. Webb had a very good work out.
Seven of Webb’s teammates also worked out outdoors in 55 degree weather on FieldTurf for representatives from seven teams.
