Cam Newton seems to approve of Panthers’ Will Grier pick
One wildcard when a team with an established quarterback selects a young one in the NFL Draft is how the entrenched starter will react to it. In the case of the Carolina Panthers, the answer appears to be pretty well.
Carolina selected quarterback Will Grier with their third round selection in the draft. It seems to have been met with the approval of current starter Cam Newton, as the incumbent liked the Instagram post announcing the pick.

The reality is, unlike some other teams who have some doubt around their quarterback situations, Newton is entrenched and not going anywhere. Grier is no threat to his job, so Newton can pretty freely approve of such a depth move without worrying about his future.
