Quarterback Rankings Going Into The 2019 NFL Combine

By

5. Will Grier, West Virginia 6-3, 215 (3)

Career Statistics: 621-945 (66%) for 8,556 yards, 81 TDs, 23 INTs. 148 rushing yards, 7 TDs

Why Will Grier Is Here On The List: Sort of under-appreciated in the post-season scouting hype process, he’s possibly the best mix of safe potential backup and crazy-upside among all of the top prospects.

No, he doesn’t have the biggest of arms, and he has to get the ball out of his hands a little quicker, but he’s a great leader, a dangerous passer, and has the baller’s mentality to always keep a team in the game.

What The NFL Types Want To See: Is the arm strength there and does he have the right mechanics? He’ll get dogged for being a scheme passer who benefited from being in the Dana Holgorsen offense and playing in the Big 12. But for this workout, it’s all about the zip on the ball from a more compact throwing motion.

Bottom Line: He’s a bit of a boom-or-bust prospect, but he’s got the NFL starting quarterback mentality with a fearless leader attitude. He needs to be harnessed a bit – he has a strange way of turning the ball over at the worst times – but he’ll be a fantastic value shot for the stars outside of the top 50 overall picks.
