The question of who will be the first quarterback selected in the 2019 NFL Draft is unclear. The NFL Combine next week will bring some clarity to the issue. WVU’s star QB, Will Grier, is in the mix and is being compared to last year’s number one overall pick, per Ian Longtin of The Spectrum.
Will Grier has a lot to gain in this combine. After watching some tape of Grier, he reminds me of Baker Mayfield. His size, throwing-motion and attitude are all comparable to Mayfield’s. Off-field concerns and a lack of competition on the defensive side of the ball in the Big 12 are areas of concern for teams. If Grier can put on a good performance, he can put himself back into the first-round conversation.
The NFL Combine takes place March 1-4.
