All 32 teams made the trek to West Virginia’s pro day to take in the numerous NFL draft prospects in this year’s class, including quarterback Will Grier, left tackle Yodney Cajuste, wide receivers David Sills and Gary Jennings, and fullback/tight end Trevon Wesco.
One NFL scout in Morgantown, W.V., just texted that QB Will Grier “put on a show” for NFL Teams in attendance and predicted he’s “a riser.” The WVU QB is expected to meet with at least 10 teams before the draft, including the Giants, Redskins, Chargers, Pats and Saints.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 21, 2019
In a tweet from Schefter this morning, he mentions that Grier is set to meet with “at least 10 teams” with one of those being the Chargers. In my opinion, take that one with a grain of salt and chalk it up under the team just doing its due diligence. After all, the team seems committed to Philip Rivers until his arm falls off or he retires, whichever comes first.
For those of you still unaware of Grier, he was a former transfer from the University of Florida who spent the last two seasons in Morgantown. While at WVU, he threw for 7,354 yards and 71 touchdowns to just 20 interceptions.
It’still a very good sign that the Chargers sent a presence to the pro day, as the Mountaineers have several players that could fill a immediate need for the team on either side of the ball.
Besides Cajuste (6-5 315lbs), an athletic tackle with one of the bigger meanstreaks in the entire class, the Chargers should be taking a hard look at linebacker David Long (5-11 225lbs), a uber-productive defender while in college with the athleticism and motor to be a force from sideline to sideline. It’s also a fun coincidence that Long’s player comp from NFL.com was current Chargers linebacker Jatavis Brown.
