What the Giants Think of Webb. Via the NYPost, how the NY Giants will draft will depend on how the team feels about Davis Webb:

“Good question,’’ Shurmur said. “It’s interesting. He and Eli are in the building every day. I got to hold back from talking ball with them. I see them in the lunch room after they’ve had their workouts. That’s a little uncomfortable for me, because they’re so eager to get going.

“I like what I’ve seen in Davis Webb. I went back and watched his tape again for college just to get reacquainted with him. I like what I saw on tape when he played. I had a chance to watch his practice tape, which has been terrific. We just don’t have a large sample size of Davis Webb playing NFL football. But I’m excited what he brings to the table.’’
