There is no shortage of controversy surrounding the Panthers’ selection at the end of the third round"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Keep Sounding PodcastPanthers 2019 NFL DraftCSR Film RoomPanthers 2019 NFL DraftThe Panthers are now prepared for the unexpected after drafting Will Grier at No. 100 overallNew ,17commentsThere is no shortage of controversy surrounding the Panthers’ selection at the end of the third roundEDTShareTweetShareShareThe Panthers are now prepared for the unexpected after drafting Will Grier at No. 100 overallBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsWith the No. 37 pick in the third round of the NFL Draft the Carolina Panthers stunned many fans with the selection of West Virginia quarterback Will Grier. I myself stood with the confused crowd. Seems like a pretty high draft pick for a sure fire back-up player we will only see play in the preseason. The more I dug into the background of Grier the more I like the pick. College productionWow...Grier threw 37 touchdowns with eight interceptions and a 175 quarterback rating.No wonder the West Virginia faithful called him ‘Touchdown’ Jesus’. They will certainly miss Grier in the coming season. Can we agree this is elite passing production for a college quarterback? I can’t agree to that nickname though. He’s starting with a clean board in Carolina, what you did in college means nothing in training camp. This is the only highlight video you need to watch:It takes a little while to show 71 touchdown passes. No I did not count them but it was a bunch. Many of those touchdown passes were against very good defenses.Pro Football Focus EvaluationFeel free to watch the video linked but here’s the summary:Grier is also getting knocked on his potential because most of his success came from the initial play call, not from improvising in response to coverage changes or play break down. No doubt that NFL defenses will look to change things up after snap when facing Grier. In fact I predict he will throw an INT before a touchdown this preseason. Mistakes should be expected.None of that means Grier doesn’t have a future in Carolina. A lot can change over the course of a rookie contract. Grier will at least be given the chance to develop without the pressure of having to start.More immediately Grier will be fun to watch in the preseason given Norv Turner is bound to call plays that match his throwing strengths. Preseason football will have a little more excitement this year Panther fans.NFL comparisonChris Trapasso with CBS Sports thinks Grier reminds him of Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. I’m not so sure that is the best comparison. The more I watch him the more he makes me think of former Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme. His profile sure reads like Delhomme. Delhomme made the most of his talent and had a propensity to make big plays at the end of games, at least until late in his career. He was a gunslinger who wasn’t afraid to throw into tight windows.Does he fit the Panthers’ offense?The Panthers offense features a lot of short passing to running back Christian McCaffrey as well as the tight end and slot receiver. We know firsthand how some of the shorter throws can be the most difficult for certain quarterbacks…like Cam Newton. This will be a focus in his first training camp. Speaking of training camp I now have another thing on my ‘I can’t wait to see’ list for training camp. The crowd loves deep passes in training camp , they always get lots of ‘ohhs’ and ‘ahhs’. I can see a friendly competition building should Grier make some early connections, even if he starts out as the third or fourth stringer. Things might be a little awkward for Kyle Allen and Taylor Heinicke with Grier in the mix but I don’t expect the back-up job to be handed to Grier right out of the gate. I give it a week or two before he will taking second team reps.The good and bad evaluationsI’m not here to completely sugar coat the selection of Grier. Here’s a not so good take on the pick.Well that fantasy analysis is stating the obvious for just about every quarterback selected in the third round. I know many fans wanted the Panthers to select a safety with this pick. There were still a couple good ones still on the board. Chauncy-Gardner Johnson and Amani Hooker could to mind first. So should the Panthers struggle at safety or either of these players become all Pros the selection of Grier will be lamented until he gets that chance to play in meaningful games.SummaryGrier is a player with huge upside but will need time to develop the footwork, timing and mental aspects of the NFL game. He appears to have all the intangibles a player needs to succeed so if he works hard he could be just the man we need should he have to step in at some point in the future. Which is really what this pick is about, having a viable option behind Cam Newton just in case of the unexpected. For that reason i have a hard time knocking this selection. Eric Reid’s grievance against the Cincinnati Bengals has been denied by an arbitrator , a decision that has irked the NFL Players Association.The union said that arbitrator Shyam Das found that the team asking Reid during a free-agent visit if he planned to kneel during the national anthem violated fair hiring practices. The union argues that standing for the anthem is not required in the labor agreement with the league.The grievance claimed that Reid wasn’t signed by any team because of his anthem protests.Reid is now with the Carolina Panthers, whom he joined this month and with whom he has continued to kneel during “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The interview with Bengals owner Mike Brown came in April.“So when the NFLPA found out about my interaction with Mike Brown, they wanted to file the grievance on my behalf,” Reid said Wednesday. “And I agreed to move forward on that on principle.“It’s interesting , it kinds of smells fishy that the arbitrator ruled that I proved the facts of the case, which are that they asked me some inappropriate questions, but he ruled I didn’t win the case.”The Bengals said Wednesday they have no comment on the matter.The union added, “We will review the decision more carefully with Eric and his lawyers to consider our next steps.”Reid filed a collusion lawsuit against the NFL because he was not signed by any team after he left the 49ers as a free agent following the 2017 season. Reid was one of the first players to join former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his protests of social and racial injustice during the anthem.“We are going to move forward with the collusion case ,” the safety said. “They are completely unrelated, that case was against the Bengals individually, and that (collusion) case was against the league as a whole.”
