Panthers' Will Grier: Tosses touchdown in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grier completed nine of 16 passes for 77 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Thursday night's 23-13 preseason win over the Bears. He also rushed once for 20 yards.

Grier replaced Kyle Allen in the second quarter and was picked off shortly thereafter. However, following that disappointment, Grier responded with a touchdown drive to start the third quarter, finding fellow rookie Elijah Holyfield from seven yards out. In also adding a long run on the night, Grier can be relatively satisfied with his debut and still looks likely to earn the Panthers' backup quarterback job.

Panthers' Will Grier: Nabbed by Carolina in third round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
