Will Grier seems like a good but not great signal caller, could be seen as a career back-up in the pros. Looked promising all year long, however a lackluster Senior Bowl performance made his draft stock take a severe hit. While he can climb the pocket well, Grier will have to win inside the pocket as it seems his ability to escape the pocket is severely limited. Will Grier has the gunslinger mentality; however might lack the NFL arm to do so.
