Draft Scout Ralph Webb News
03/13/18 - The cheering grew noticeably louder at the midway point of Vanderbilt's Pro Day on Tuesday, when running back Ralph Webb took his turn on the bench press. Webb, the Commodores' all-time leading rusher, turned in a whopping 27 reps at 225 pounds, sparking hoots and howls from his surrounding teammates. Amid the ensuing high-fives, at least one Vanderbilt player wasn't surprised. "I knew I was going to kill the bench," Webb said. "I've always been pretty strong, one of the strongest guys on the team. I figured I'd get about 25-27 reps." Webb's performance was just one piece of Pro Day, when 18 former Commodores worked out for a host of NFL scouts at the Vanderbilt Multipurpose Facility. In all, 29 NFL teams ventured to Nashville to assess the pro prospects of several Vanderbilt standouts.
Like many of his teammates, Webb hopes to forge his own NFL career. The Gainesville, Fla. product finished his collegiate career as a four-year starter and the Commodores' career rushing leader with 4,173 yards. That number places his sixth all-time in SEC history. At Pro Day, Webb showed out in front of NFL scouts. He leaped for a 36-inch vertical jump and 10' 2'' broad jump, then clocked a fast 4.48 40-yard dash. Webb then showed flashes of pass-catching out of the backfield, the very versatility he hopes will pique the interests of NFL teams. "It's just coming out and showing that I can run, I'm fast and I can catch the ball out the backfield," Webb said. "I've got great tape. I know I can run the ball. They just want to see where I can move it around and be versatile. I think I came out here and did that today." - Vanderbilt Football
11/25/17 - Kyle Shurmur threw for 283 yards and four touchdowns as Vanderbilt knocked off Tennessee 42-24 on Saturday at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn. It's the first conference win for the Commodores (5-7, 1-7 SEC), while the Volunteers (4-8, 0-8 SEC) finished the season winless in the SEC and mired in the East division basement. It's the second time in as many years that Vanderbilt dealt Tennessee a season-ending loss and the fourth win for the Commodores in their last six games against the Vols. Shurmur's third four-touchdown game this season was part of a 529-yard onslaught by the Commodores.
Ralph Webb rushed for 163 yards and a pair of touchdowns in his final collegiate game. The senior also passed Florida's Errict Rhett for sixth among the SEC's all-time leading rushers with 4,169 career yards. Trent Sherfield added 81 receiving yards and a pair of scoring grabs for Vanderbilt. Tennessee jumped out to a 14-7 lead on a 2-yard touchdown catch by Marquez Callaway and a 1-yard scoring run by John Kelly. Vanderbilt stormed back, however, taking a 21-14 lead into the break on a 2-yard touchdown run by Webb and a 30-yard scoring heave from Shurmur to Kalija Lipscomb with 2:37 remaining in the half. Shurmur connected with C.J. Duncan for a 9-yard touchdown in the first quarter to open the scoring for the Commodores. Duncan finished with 99 receiving yards. - The Sports Xchange
10/14/17 - Vanderbilt's Ralph Webb has pushed his way up to 15th place on the Southeastern Conference career rushing chart. The senior ran for 92 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries in the first half. He now has 3,679 career rushing yards, passing former Alabama star Derrick Henry, who ran for 3,591 yards from 2013-15. Webb has a good chance to get to 4,000 career yards by the end of the season, which would put him in the league's top 10 all-time. Some of the big names he could catch include LSU's Leonard Fournette (3,830 yards), Florida's Emmitt Smith (3,928) and even possibly Auburn's Bo Jackson (4,303). The SEC's all-time leading rusher is Georgia's Herschel Walker, who ran for 5,259 yards from 1980-82. Ole Miss was leading Vanderbilt 35-21 at halftime. - AP College Football
