Vikings WR Joe Webb has 'caught everything' in workouts
Vikings quarterback-turned-wide-receiver Joe Webb has been impressive in recent workouts. A source told Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com that Webb has "caught everything" and that his hands were not a problem. However, the source said Webb still has a lot to learn about playing the position. Prior to a few weeks ago, Webb hadn't lined up out wide since his 2010 rookie minicamp.
Webb is expectedly raw at his new full-time position. Webb has the size and speed to be a threat -- 6-foot-4 with 4.4-40 speed. With those attributes, the Vikings hope they can mold Webb into a contributor this season, but it's likely going to be a long process. Even then, Webb is probably going to be no more than Minnesota's No. 4 wide receiver, so he will be off the fantasy radar for the foreseeable future.
