A little more than month away from the 2019 NFL Draft, the Redskins were one of several teams in attendance at Grier's pro day at West Virginia on Thursday. 

But even more than just attending his pro day, the Redskins got a one-on-one meeting with him the night prior. Head coach Jay Gruden reportedly had dinner with the 6-foot-2 passer on Wednesday. The Redskins were one of three teams that had or are scheduled to have individualized dinners, according to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala. 

According to Ben Standig's latest Mock Draft, Grier is picked to be selected late in the second round going to the New England Patriots. He is the fifth QB in line to be drafted at pick No. 56.

His last season Morgantown saw Grier throw for 37 TDs and eight INTs. He did so with a 67 percent completion mark while averaging 9.7 yards per attempt.

It is nothing too out of the ordinary for a team to meet with a draft prospect. However, this is not the first QB that the Redskins are reported to be looking at. Projected top-five pick Dwayne Haskins is another pass thrower that had Washington in the crowd at his pro day

Haskins is not likely to make the fall to No. 15 in the draft, unless of course, the team trades up. Grier however? It's more than reasonable unless other teams get desperate at that position.
