Garoppolo compares to Webb

giantfan2000 : 1/5/2018 1:07 pm
Jimmy Garoppolo was taken 62th player in 2014 draft the 5th QB picked

David Webb was taken 87th player in 2016 draft the 5th QB picked

Garoppolo started to get into games his first two years in garbage time
it was only when Brady was suspended .That Garoppolo became starter , He played 1 1/2 games and was injured

finally in YEAR 4 Garoppolo traded and becomes the legend for 49ers

My point is maybe Giants do have their future QB in Webb and maybe we should let Eli keep on at starter for 1 or 2 more years meanwhile starting to seriously groom Webb as successor.

Jimmy G learned under Tom Brady and as much as I love Eli Manning. Eli isn't Tom Brady.

Also, Jimmy G has had Josh McDaniels and Bill Belicheck coaching him.

Davis Webb had Ben McAdoo.

Advantage?

Garaoppolo.

I have yet to see the young man throw one pass. Wish I did.

If Webb is the guy to replace Eli in 1 or 2 seasons, we're in great position come draft time. I just wish I could've seen the kid play.
This season should have ended the way it was designed.  
Blue21 : 1/5/2018 1:19 pm : link
Smith one game (which admittedly was a mistake and mishandle but happened anyway), and Webb the last two games. Giant's management might have a better idea where they stood with a QB beside Eli. They screwed the whole thing up. Probably should have started Webb one or two two games then maybe let Smith cleanup the last game with all the scrubs playing.

Iíve read the preseason game reviews in this site, which is all I know of Webb. He wasnít much of a scrambler in college but the review said his footwork was solid and he kept his eyes downfield. That would be a pretty good improvement for a rookie. Thatís about all I have to hang my hat on.

Listen we all hope Webb ends up being a very good QB  
Jay on the Island : 1/5/2018 1:33 pm : link
The truth is we donít know whether or not he will be which is why it would be a huge mistake to pass on a QB with the 2nd overall pick. Best case scenario is both the new QB and Webb develop into franchise players then the Giants have a cheap stud backup QB for 2 years who they can trade for pick(s) going into his contract season. There is no guarantee that our next QB will manage to remain healthy like Eli.

Why??  
lax counsel : 1/5/2018 1:44 pm : link
Other than comparing draft positions (which isn't all that comparable), what exactly makes them alike? Jimmy G was pretty well regarded around the NFL not long after his arrival, by not just the Patriots but by other scouts. Most other scouts, other than the Reese spin doctors (i.e., the smartest people in the room), saw Webb's ceiling as an NFL back-up at best.

Webb is more likely to be a practice squad qb, than a a franchise one in the NFL. Listen, if the Giants take Darnold/Rosen and one of them AND Webb end up a franchise qb (highly unlikely), the Giants are in the ultimate position of power.
This thread is ludicrous.

at this point is that the crack team of reese/mcadoo were high on him and traded up to get him and 8 months later both of those guys got fired from their jobs in-season. doesn't give me a ton of confidence and i have nothing against webb.

also, every project QB reese has selected has been garbage, including nassib who he traded up to get. not a winning ratio

comparison between Jimmy G and Webb....

Webb should have never been drafted(because we had so many other needs), UNLESS WE THOUGHT HE WAS THE FUTURE!

It just goes to show you what a cluster f*ck Reese and Mac have created.....

At the bye, is when Webb should have been made #2......he should have been given playing time in the fourth quarter of games out of reach.....instead we drafted a guy we know nothing about, because we never attempted to see what he could do in live action.....

Funny thing is, Webb was known more for his short passing than his long passing.....this was an offense taylored for that......Eli is not the best at throwing short...even with a bad OL, if Webb threw quickly, he could have handled this OL.......but we never exercised this opportunity....

So, now we have an unknown at QB, and are we even sure what is in the draft, is that much better than Webb? I have not seen it, in recent games.....Darnold did not look good under pressure.....Rosen isn't playing......Mayfield, for whatever reason, did not take over that game in OVERTIME......

As I said, just how good are these guys? I have not seen enough of their play, and I don't think many on BBI have either....they are just guessing....

Painless62 : 1/5/2018 2:40 pm : link
Do we all remember Eli for the first number of years? He was down right horrible in many games. Missed receivers, picks etc. We stuck with him and stuck with him. Heck , even at his best he makes some horrid throws and bad decisions. What I am trying to say is that there are probably qbs drafted in round 2Ė3 who if they were treated like top 10 picks might eventually succeed. With a supposed high character and top notch work ethic, Webb could very possibly be a good to very good qb if he is given the same attention and learning curve that Eli was.

Bingo, I've been saying in other threads. Go watch tape on Webb, everything is one read to an open receiver within 10 yards. Any downfield throws are not accurate. Then go watch tape on Darnold/Rosen, heck even Allen...their heads are always on a swivel once read one is gone.

And, as someone else said, Webb is a Reese mid-round pick, doesn't bode well for him. I don't think we'll ever know this, but I have a feeling Webb is a later round pick if not for the Giants.

Unfortunately, the team would be foolish to give a mid-round pick, who was selected by a GM known for failed mid-round picks, that kind of time when you are staring at two of the better QB prospects to come out since Luck.

Way too early. My opinion is they'll prefer Darnold. MAB's post has also been noted, although it's more likely other teams know or have a good idea before one of the beat writers shares it, etc.

It may, it may not. Why would you give a competitor that information? What's the upside?

Not only the browns... but if other teams know who the Giants want, they may be more inclined to trade up to one too (and could give the browns more comfort to take their guy at 4 if it's Allen as has been rumored)

As fans naturally we're curious, but the Giants need to keep this shit air tight imo. jon says beat writers will know before hand... that was the case under Reese's ship. I'm hoping that changes with the new regime. Loose lips sink ships.

Garoppolo vs. Webb (pre-draft) .....  
Manny in CA : 1/5/2018 6:05 pm : link
http://www.nfl.com/draft/2014/profiles/jimmy-garoppolo?id=2543801

Garropolo ...


STRENGTHS Has a very quick trigger and good wrist snap that translates to a smooth throwing motion and clean, compact delivery (no windup). Lightning release quickness. Urgent decision maker. Sells play-action. Athletic enough to slide in the pocket and buy time with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield. Good anticipation -- throws his receivers open. Can change ball speeds and drop it in a bucket. Does not take unnecessary sacks and will dump the ball. Will deliver the ball looking down the barrel of a gun. Tough-minded and poised in the pocket -- can withstand a hit and pop back up. Highly competitive. Smart, respected, vocal team leader. Very durable, experienced, four-year starter. Good football intelligence.

WEAKNESSES Is a tad undersized with small hands and short arms. Uses a three-quarters delivery that could lead to batted balls. Works heavily out of the shotgun in a spread offense, and footwork could require adjustment to working from under center. Does not always feel pressure in the pocket. Does not rip the deep out or drive the ball with high RPMs. Undershoots and often hangs the deep ball. Makes receivers work for the ball downfield, and deep accuracy could stand to improve. Makes a lot of simple, one-look reads and was not heavily challenged by consistent pressure or complex looks in the Ohio Valley Conference.

Davis Webb

http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/davis-webb?id=2557897

STRENGTHS Stands tall in the pocket with a high release point. Rhythm passer. Can drive it with accuracy between hashes when allowed to sling from a clean pocket. 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. Feet are good enough to operate in a boot-action passing attack. Completion percentage saw an uptick in the fourth quarter in 2016.

WEAKNESSES Robotic decision-making. Decision on where to go with ball seems predetermined despite coverages. Needs to get better at manipulating safeties with his eyes. Inconsistent velocity to sideline causes nose of ball to dip. Drive throws sometime sail. Has slow setup in pocket with excessive pre-release steps. Cornerbacks contest too many throws due to lack of anticipation. Timing passes must come out sooner. Plagued by accuracy issues and decision-making outside the numbers on both intermediate and deep throws. Five of his 12 interceptions in 2016 were along deep sidelines due to under-throws and failure to read safety help. Touch and placement are an issue when forced to leave the pocket. Not a factor as a scrambler.

OK, does Garropolo's draft report jump out at you, vs. Webb's ? I wouldn't say so (plus Webb was competing against better players, in college).
Even if he develops....  
GFAN52 : 1/5/2018 6:14 pm : link
You still take another at 2. If they both develop you trade one for a high pick later.
Don't agree, GFAN ...  
Manny in CA : 1/5/2018 6:51 pm : link

If you pick a QB at #2 over-all (and you keep Eli), Webb is G-O-N-E. You may keep a vet like Geno Smith, if Eli goes down, but not two developmental players behind your starter.- that is irresponsible.

Unless ....

Phil in LA : 1/5/2018 7:41 pm : link
climbed in post season testing period. Webb had the best velocity at the combine, and I think Jimmy might have had it at his. So when and why they got their helium was similar.

DennyInDenville : 1/5/2018 9:50 pm : link
And measurables...

We can't ignore those traits at 6-5 230, we can't ignore his willingness to learn and be Elis bitch for 2 more years he will love it because he knows he needs to put in the work, his mentality is EXACTLY what you need from him.

Keep Eli around for 2 more seasons, let Webb soak up everything like a sponge and he can legit be Rodgers like sensation when he starts week 1 2020 to start the decade for us.
Dots saying he has a Kerry Collins arm doesn't pass the eye test to me  
Ten Ton Hammer : 1/6/2018 12:51 am : link
Collins had a cannon. His throws were eye-catching. Webb threw a bit in preseason and I never got that impression from him.
