One of college football's best quarterback from the 2017 and 2018 seasons is having a rough week so far at the Senior Bowl. Former West Virginia star Will Grier entered the 2018 season as a potential first-round pick.

After throwing for nearly 4,000 yards and 37 touchdowns, it looked like Grier solidified his status as one of the top quarterbacks in the 2019 draft class. However, after skipping his team's bowl game and struggling during practice sessions at it appears his stock is falling.

On Saturday afternoon, Grier was on the field once again for the Senior Bowl and he struggled to find a rhythm in the early going. His first quarter performance was quantified as a "dumpster fire" by one analyst.

Another analyst talked about the "Will Grier Experience" as a white knuckle ride from start to finish.

Despite lighting up the college football world in his final two seasons with the West Virginia Mountaineers, Grier's draft stock appears to be tumbling as he struggles to connect with his receivers at the Senior Bowl.

Grier will have another opportunity to prove he's a capable quarterback during West Virginia's pro day and at the NFL combine in mid-February.

The NFL draft kicks off on April 25 and runs through the weekend.
