In the Redskins search for a new quarterback, there is one QB at the Senior Bowl who J.P. Finlay would defiantly warn against.

"The biggest thing that stands out to me, is I think, I am very out of the Drew Lock business," Finlay told Grant & Danny on Thursday.

"He's not an accurate passer, the mechanics are bad. I think he's gonna be a high pick because he looks the part and I don't see him as a guy the Redskins should be looking at," Finlay said. "I don't see him as a guy that's gonna have success in the NFL, frankly."

Finlay admitted he "could always be wrong," but quarterbacks are the one area he is confident in spotting poor performers. 

"I can't necessarily tell you who's gonna be great, but in the past two years down in Mobile, I've known who's gonna be bad," Finlay said. 

The two quarterbacks Finlay pointed two from years past: Davis Webb and Nathan Peterman. 

"I'm not saying Lock is as bad as those guys, but for a guy that projects (to go high and) by the time the QB run happens, and he looks impressive at a pro day, and whatever might happen. And he goes top 10. No thanks," Finlay said. 

Finlay said he thought West Virginia’s Will Grier and N.C. State’s Ryan Finley (no relation) were impressive with Grier potentially being a first-round pick and Finley a later-round pick. 

A potential landing spot for Finley in the later rounds, Finlay said, the Washington Redskins.
