The Redskins are making the rounds with some of the top QBs in this year’s draft. They met with all of them at the Combine, and now are going back for more. The Redskins sent a scouting crew that included Bruce Allen to Ohio State’s Pro Day yesterday to check out Dwayne Haskins and others. Haskins has started to be linked to Washington as an option if they trade up to get their guy.
Today was Mizzou’s Pro Day, and the Redskins sent Bruce Allen again to get an up close look at QB Drew Lock. Washington’s crew met with, or will meet Lock today. Lock has been heavily linked to the Redskins, and also might require a trade up if they want to make sure he is available.
All 32 NFL teams expected here for Mizzou Pro Day. Teams spotted with multiple guys here: Dolphins, Redskins, Steelers. Surely more, too. Weigh-ins starting soon.— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) March 21, 2019
Missouri QB Drew Lock told @MoveTheSticks and me that he has met with or will meet with: the Giants, the Dolphins, Washington, the Chargers, the Broncos and.....the Lions— Steve Wyche (@wyche89) March 21, 2019
While Bruce was checking out Drew Lock, Jay Gruden was sent to West Virginia to scout QB Will Grier. The Mountaineers QB is projected as a 2nd round pick, and could allow Washington to go defense, or grab a playmaker on offense in the 1st round. Gruden had sushi for dinner with Grier last night.
One NFL scout in Morgantown, W.V., just texted that QB Will Grier “put on a show” for NFL Teams in attendance and predicted he’s “a riser.” The WVU QB is expected to meet with at least 10 teams before the draft, including the Giants, Redskins, Chargers, Pats and Saints.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 21, 2019

WVU QB Will Grier had two dinners last night: steak and salad w/ the #Panthers Norv and Scott Turner and a sushi roll w/ the #Redskins’ Jay Gruden. He’s meeting w/ the #Giants today. The way he distinguishes himself from other QBs, he said? By showing what a playbook junkie he is— Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) March 21, 2019
