The New York Giants are meeting this week with West Virginia quarterback and NFL Draft prospect Will Grier.
Big Blue is continuing their search for quarterback Eli Manning‘s eventual successor.
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the New York Giants are scheduled to meet with West Virginia quarterback Will Grier this week. Grier was recognized with Second-Team All-Big 12 honors this past season for the Mountaineers.
The #Patriots are doing their share of QB homework, as West Virginia QB Will Grier is visiting today, along with Duke’s Daniel Jones. Busy time for Grier, who heads to the #Giants tomorrow and has two more visits after that.

In 2018, Grier threw for 37 touchdowns to only eight interceptions for West Virginia. He probably won’t be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft in April. However, he’s slated to be selected around the second round.
The Giants could use the No. 37 overall pick on him if he’s available. They most definitely won’t use their No. 6 nor 17 overall pick on him, but who knows at this point?
The Giants have had their eye on a few quarterbacks this offseason.
For the most part, they’ve kept up with Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins. However Haskins draft stock has seemed to plummet recently. The general narrative has shifted towards the Giants not taking the Buckeye quarterback with their No. 6 overall pick.
Big Blue also met with Missouri QB Drew Lock last week, and have looked at the possibility of drafting Duke QB Daniel Jones. The latter was coached by David Cutcliffe at Duke. Cutcliffe coached Manning at Ole Miss in the early 2000s.
The only quarterback that may not be on the Giants radar when the draft rolls around is Heisman Trophy-winning Oklahoma QB, Kyler Murray. There’s a good chance that Murray goes No. 1 overall to the Arizona Cardinals.
That introduces the possibility that current Cardinals QB Josh Rosen could be traded to the Giants. However, reports came out recently that the Giants are ‘not in love‘ with the former UCLA quarterback. Arizona selected Rosen with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
