Will Grier Stats
Will Grier established himself as one of college football's premier passers in his two years as the starting quarterback in Morgantown. Grier has a quick release and excellent downfield vision, two attributes that are key indicators of success in the NFL.
Grier had a great first season for West Virginia in 2017 after transferring from Florida. He completed 64.4-percent of his passes for 3,490 yards and 34 touchdowns to just 12 interceptions. Grier's play was a big part of the increased expectations for West Virginia in 2018. Although the Mountaineers failed to meet their lofty 2018 goals, Grier improved across the board. In 2018, the redshirt senior completed 67.0-percent of his passes for 3,864 yards and 37 touchdowns to just eight interceptions.

Will Grier Draft Prediction
Washington Redskins (No. 15), New England Patriots (No. 32)
The Redskins quarterback situation is about as dire as it gets coming off of Alex Smith's late-season leg injury. Colt McCoy, a career back up, sits atop the Redskins depth chart and they are looking to add a young quarterback that they can build around for the future.
If the Redskins pass on Grier and he falls to the end of the first-round, look for the Patriots to bring in the 24-year-old prospect. Despite the fact that Tom Brady continues to defy time, eventually the Patriots will need to replace him. Grier's ability to read the defense and make on-the-fly adjustments should be attractive to coach Belichick and Grier will have the closing years of Brady's career to learn under the G.O.A.T.
