Webb working with former pro QB to transition from spread Dan Leberfeld

The Jets recently met with California quarterback Davis Webb, who actually played at Texas Tech with Patrick Mahomes. Here is a Q-and-A with Webb . . .

*Q)What was it like training with former NFL QB and coach Jim Zorn?

Davis Webb – QB – Cal: I’m a coach’s kid. I want to be a coach one day after I’m done playing, so I’ve always been a fan of coaches throughout high school, college and the NFL, so I knew who Jim Zorn was. I watched Steve Largent’s “A Football Life.” He’s on that. So I’m a football fanatic. It’s such an honor to be with him every day. It’s been a blessing.

Q)What is your relationship like with former Texas Tech teammate Patrick Mahomes?

Webb: We were at Texas Tech. He got there a little late – I think July. It was my job to take him under my wing and get him ready for the offense.
We had like six quarterbacks transfer from Texas Tech. Patrick and I are very close today. We text throughout the year. He was watching my games late at night at Cal. And I was watching his games in the morning. I look forward to seeing where he goes. It’ll be a lot of fun.

Q)Where do you think you might go in the draft?

Webb: I’m going to be the best quarterback I can be. I can’t control that kind of stuff. My preparation is the only thing on my mind and I try to be the best version of myself I can be and once my opportunity comes, make the most of it.

Q)Transitioning to pro-style offense from college spread . . .

Webb: Coach Zorn and I have been doing everything from talking about huddles to talking about plays, talking about the verbiage of plays and the defenses. I have a great foundation.
