Player Outlook

Will Grier was an electric quarterback prospect at West Virginia, but he'll begin his NFL career backing up Cam Newton in Carolina. Mastering the air-raid offense, Grier totaled 7,359 yards and 71 passing touchdowns in 22 games. When he got into a rhythm, he was nearly impossible to stop. He also had 20 interceptions, a nod to high-risk gunslinger tendencies that sent his draft stock tumbling. He's an older rookie (24) and was also suspended for a year for failing a drug test, but if he dedicates himself to staying sharp, he'll be impactful once he gets a chance to play. With Newton's shoulder ailing, it's possible that could be sooner than later. He's worth a very late pick in seasonal two-QB leagues as well as in all long-term formats.

Player News
  • The Panthers selected Grier in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 100th overall. Grier is the fifth quarterback taken in this year's class after a unique college career that began at Florida and ended at West Virginia with a PED suspension in between. He lacks ideal arm strength, but he still threw for 7,354 yards and 71 touchdowns over his two seasons with the Mountaineers. There are drawbacks to his game, however; Grier can get reckless with the ball (20 interceptions at WVU). He'll be Cam Newton's backup, and it remains to be seen whether he has the skill set to be an NFL starter at some point.
