Will Grier's visit with the Redskins had already been reported, we just didn't know when it would take place. That day is today, and the West Virginia Mountaineers QB is meeting with Washington again. Jay Gruden took a big interest in Grier, taking him out to dinner before his Pro Day.
As draft visits wind down, there are several going on today: #WVU QB Will Grier and #OSU WR Parris Campbell are visiting the #Redskins ... #OleMiss WR AJ Brown and South Carolina WR Deebo Samuel are visiting the #49ers. ... #Houston DL Ed Oliver is visiting the #Jets, who pick 3.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 16, 2019
The Redskins will also host Ohio State WR Parris Campbell today. Washington has shown a lot of interest in receivers this year. They have a big need going into this season and for the future.
Jamison Crowder signed with the Jets in free agency. Josh Doctson is entering the final year on his rookie deal. Last year's big FA signing Paul Richardson, was injured all season. Everyone else is unproven potential, and most of them were injured last season.
Parris Campbell is projected to go in the 2nd round this year. Campbell(6', 205 lbs) led the Buckeyes last year with 90 receptions for 1,063 yards (11.8 average) and 12 touchdowns in 14 starts. He also contributed in the run game and with returns.
