Outlook: What is Joe Webb? Is he an athletic quarterback or big wide receiver.

The Vikings tried both and neither has produced a long-term answer. Webb was listed as a quarterback in the 2010 draft.

He ran the wide receiver drills during the offseason workouts. That ended before training camp because the Vikings thought he throw well enough to make his athleticism a weapon.

He remained a quarterback for three seasons, but last offseason, the Vikings officially moved him to wide receiver.

The statistics were not eye popping, but he is still learning to play the position at the highest level.

His best attributes shown as a receiver last season were size, athleticism, leaping ability and blocking.
