MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - A big group from WVU football hoped to raise their NFL Draft stocks Thursday at WVU Pro Day. At least one player seems to have accomplished that.
Quarterback Will Grier put on a sharp throwing display at the Caperton Indoor Practice Facility. Afterward, ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that Grier impressed several of the NFL scouts and coaches in attendance: After a long football journey that brought him to WVU, Grier says he’s eager for his shot in the NFL.
“I treated it like my job, and it’s just going to keep getting more and more intense,” said Grier. “I wanna be the greatest that’s ever played. It’s going to take a lot of hours and a lot of reps and a lot of work. I have the opportunity to go play in the league now and make this my job, and I’m going to take advantage of that opportunity.”
