Matt Waldman's Rookie Scouting Portfolio pre-draft publication ranked Grier as its top-ranked passer slightly ahead of Kyler Murray. According to several outlets, so did the Panthers. Grier possesses excellent vertical accuracy and anticipation and he has shown signs of quickly picking up the Carolina offense. Because Cam Newton is coming off his second consecutive off-season surgery to his throwing shoulder, Grier could have a chance to play if something goes wrong.

Summary

Carolina drafted Will Grier in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Grier was drafted to be the understudy for Cam Newton, in the event Newton's shoulder injury is slow to return to form, or if an injury further complicates the situation. As a passer, Grier shows promise on touch passes and accuracy, but his arm strength is not considered elite. The Panthers staff believes his lack of an elite arm is not an issue in their offense. He will have the opportunity to showcase his abilities in the preseason and possibly earn the backup role outright with a favorable showing. (May 23)
