But for at least one NFL executive, Goff is no Webb when it comes to arm talent.
"I didn't have high expectations for Webb. I thought he would be just a system type guy, considering where he came from," the executive told NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah. "After studying him, I was shocked. He's really good. He's bigger than (Jared) Goff and he has a much better arm. He makes some rare throws."
NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein has seen both QBs play for Cal in person -- Webb against Texas this year. Zierlein has yet to evaluate film of Webb, but from one live evaluation, he found the two quarterbacks' arms comparable.
"I think it's very similar. I think Goff had a good arm, I didn't think it was a great arm. He had plenty for an NFL arm. Webb can throw that deep ball pretty well," Zierlein said. "From the eyeball test, their arms are comparable."
Although Cal is 3-3, the passing offense hasn't been a problem. Webb has thrown for at least 300 yards in all but one game, and has a TD-INT ratio of 22-7. In other words, he's posting Goff-like numbers, and appears to have a Goff-like arm, if not better.
Whether he'll have a Goff-like draft status, however, is a long way from being determined.
