The Panthers decision to draft Will Grier out of West Virginia marked the first time in eight years that Carolina selected a quarterback during any round of the draft.
Before Grier, the last time the Panthers took a quarterback came back in 2011 when they selected Cam Newton with the No. 1 overall pick.
In his first interview since the draft ended, Newton made it clear that he has no problem with the fact that the Panthers selected someone who plays his position.
Not only is Newton excited about his new teammate, but he has apparently already reached out to Grier, which is definitely a good sign for the Panthers.
