Webb played one season at Cal as a graduate transfer from Texas Tech and was honored as a semifinalist for the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award and Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award while picking an honorable mention All-Pac-12 selection. Webb started all 12 games in his lone season at Cal as a senior and completed 382-of-620 passes (61.6 percent) for 4,295 yards with 37 passing touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Including his three seasons at Texas Tech (2013-15), he combined to complete 841-of-1367 (61.5%) passes for 9,852 yards with 83 touchdown passes and 34 interceptions over 35 games and 26 starts.


Webb ranked among the nation's leaders in passing attempts (2nd), completions per game (3rd), points responsible for per game (3rd), completions (4th), total offense (4th), passing yards (6th), total plays (6th), passing touchdowns (T8th) and points responsible for (8th). He was also the Pac-12's leader passing yards per game (357.9) and total offense, while he set Cal single-season records for passing attempts, completions and total plays. He also equaled single-season school marks for most 300-yard passing games (10) and touchdowns responsible for (43) with his 37 in the air plus another six on the ground, which tied for the most ever by a Cal quarterback.


He became the third Cal player to be named the Senior Bowl MVP following quarterbacks Steve Bartkowski (1995) and Pat Barnes (1997). In the contest, Webb completed 11 of 16 passes for a game-high 165 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions.

Shows patience to allow crossing routes to clear traffic. Expedites release with compact delivery when blitzed. Functional poise with blitz in his face. Slides to create cleaner platform to launch from when pocket gets noisy. Internal clock is operational. Has feel for when ball has been in his hands too long and will look to release it.
