The NFL Draft is complete and every franchise is looking forward to having their new rookies come to training camp. Everyone is waiting to see who will be stars and who will be busts.
Every team has a different draft strategy, with some picking talented players, and other picking talented athletes. Although talented players seem to be safer, talented athletes usually have higher potential, but are also a higher risk. Even if some of these athletes do turn out to be busts, some of the things they can do are absolutely incredible.
That brings us to this week’s Video of the Week. Minnesota Vikings’ backup quarterback Joe Webb will probably never be a starting quarterback in the NFL. However, is athletic ability is up there with the best, and its no surprise as to why the Vikings drafted him in hopes that he could do amazing things. Webb had a very strong combine, excelling in the 40-yard dash.
However, his most impressive feat was his jumping ability. Webb is able to jump over seven dummies with a minimal running start. As you will see in the video seven dummies is taller than most people, and Webb clears it with ease. Maybe the Timberwolves should ask the Vikings if they could borrow him for a little, because lets face it, when your two best players are Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love, you’re lacking athleticism.
