While quarterbacks such as Deshaun Watson, Mitchell Trubisky and DeShone Kizer have received most of the pre-draft attention, there’s one QB who’s beginning to rise on team’s draft boards.

Cal QB Davis Webb said after his pro day that several NFL teams told him he was a first-round player.

“I’ve talked to a lot of NFL people,” Webb said. “And double-digit teams have told me I’m a first-round guy.”

Webb played one season at Cal after transferring from Texas Tech. He passed for 4,295 yards, 37 touchdowns and 12 interceptions last season for the Golden Bears. He threw for 46 touchdowns in three seasons with the Red Raiders.

Webb said he has 12-15 meetings set up with NFL teams. He also said he was pleased with his performance at Cal’s pro day.

“I try to show off a bit,” Webb said. “I try to show them that I know my stuff, about defenses and about fronts. I think my potential is through the roof.”

CBS Sports has Webb as the No. 5 QB in the upcoming draft behind Trubisky, Watson, Kizer and Patrick Mahomes, who replaced Webb as the QB at Texas Tech.
