Jordan Schultz reports that the Redskins are scheduled to bring in Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray for an official visit on Thursday, April 18 and will also host West Virginia QB Will Grier the previous day.
Washington has the No. 15 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and has a clear need for a franchise quarterback.
Murray made the decision to pursue an NFL career despite being drafted by the Oakland A’s last year. He’s now in the discussion to be a top-10 pick and could possibly go No. 1 overall.
The Cardinals are widely believed to be considering taking Murray with the No. 1 overall pick despite spending a top-ten selection on QB Josh Rosen a year ago, meaning the Redskins would undoubtedly have to trade up considerably to acquire Murray.
Murray weighed in at 5-foot-10, 207 pounds at the Combine, which is similar to Russell Wilson and helped to alleviate some concerns.
During this three-year college career at Texans A&M and Oklahoma, Murray completed 68.7 percent of his passes for 5,098 yards, 48 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. He also rushed for 1,369 and 12 touchdowns over the course of 28 games.
Grier has come up as someone to watch in terms of possibly being a late first- or early second-round pick and could be in play for the Patriots at the end of the first round.
Grier actually began his college career at Florida before transferring to West Virginia in time for the 2017 season.
For his career, Grier threw for 8,556 while completing 65.7 percent of his passes to go along with 81 touchdowns and 23 interceptions over the course of three seasons and 28 games played.
