The Carolina used the No. 100 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft to select quarterback Will Grier, and the internet has reacted as one would expect. There are takes to be had from both sides of the debate, so here is a collection of some of the best reactions to the team’s decision to draft Cam’s backup in the third round.
First, I’ll start with mine.
Full disclosure: I’m mostly happy about this because of the absoute chaos it will create. I do think Grier is a solid quarterback and was probably on the board longer than he should have been, but I don’t think Cam’s starting job is in danger or anything (unless his shoulder isn’t healing as well as we’ve been led to believe).
Finally a pick we can be proud of— Chris Hilton (@batistacman) April 27, 2019
Carolina just got the steal of the draft, Will Grier, who'll be much better than Daniel Jones. BUT Cam Newton is only 29. Unless the Panthers think Cam is going to have more & more injury problems, I don't get this. Grier is no long-term backup. He's 2nd best QB in this draft.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) April 27, 2019
Will Grier was my 3rd QB prospect now his talents are going to waste as a back up.— Carlos Campos (@ccampos5760) April 27, 2019
grier is trash.. he had 3 years and couldnt throw for over 4000 yards. in the big 12— Wodie (@WodieTheGhost) April 27, 2019
I'm not meaning to sound so ant Will Grier but if you really value Cam and insist he still the guy why get Will??? We still need to find a running mate for Reid at safety. #NFLDraft #PanthersDraft #KeepPounding— Keelan Stevens (@VincefearsBalor) April 27, 2019
Carolina always make horrible 3rd round picks ...... we have like 6 back up Quarterbacks smh ........ I rather Tre Boston as a safety n we get a young CB n get rid of James Bradberry— dennis bottoms (@newbreedofhater) April 27, 2019
