2010 NFL Draft: Minnesota Vikings Select Alabama-Birmingham QB Joe Webb With the 199th Overall Pick

With their sixth-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, the 199th pick overall, the Vikings took a developmental quarterback by nabbing Joe Webb from the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

Here's what Mocking the Draft had to say about Webb.

Webb could be yet another Wildcat quarterback candidate. He's a good all-around athlete and makes a lot of plays with his legs. Plays in a gimmick offense. Will throw too many passes into coverage. Has played wide receiver and that may be his better position in the NFL.

Wow. . .certainly not the most encouraging scouting report you'd ever want to hear.  Apparently at his Pro Day, he did work out as a wide receiver.

Myron Rolle, who darn near everybody in the comments on the main Day 3 thread is completely sold on at this point, continues to slide down the board.

Minnesota has two more selections remaining, both in the seventh round.  They are #214 and #237 overall.  Stay tuned. . .maybe the Vikings will draft someone we've heard of with either (or both) of those selections.
