After nearly three full rounds of the 2019 Draft two West Virginia University Mountaineers have been picked to play in the NFL. 

The Carolina Panthers selected quarterback Will Grier with the 100th pick of the draft.  Grier threw 37 touchdowns and for more than 3,800 yards this past season.  ESPN NFL analyst Adam Schefter tweeted the Panthers had Grier graded as a first-round talent on their draft board but were able to wait until nearly the end of the third round to pick him. 

Immediately after that selection the New England Patriots selected WVU offensive lineman Yodny Cajuste with the 101st pick.
