I have seen a lot of quarterbacks come and go in the Ron Rivera era of the Carolina Panthers. Young guys that would be a long shot to make any NFL team. The Panthers would treat the task of developing a young QB as an afterthought. No mind nor draft picks were given.
It didn’t take long for the Panthers to see the benefit of drafting a solid prospect. Will Grier has stepped in and surpassed expectations this far. Grier recently spent time with the first string offense as starter Cam Newton rested his shoulder. Under Grier, the Carolina Panthers offense did not miss a beat.
Grier has the same type of passing style as Cam Newton. A nice touch on the long ball which fits in perfectly with Norv Turner’s system. This is likely a big reason why Turner lobbied for the Grier selection.
Should Cam Newton sustain another injury, the Panthers still may find themselves able to win games until Newton’s return. Yes, Cam Newton is far and away the starter at QB and it is not a competition. But having a quality backup QB in Carolina will surely put Panthers fans minds at ease.
Amazing the things that can happen when talent is drafted.Agree? Disagree? You can sound off right here with thousands of Carolina Panthers fans.
