Dwayne Haskins attended high school in the District, and considering the Redskins picking 15th overall that is a place he could end up, the former Ohio State quarterback thinks it would a great fit.
“I’m definitely HTTR,” Haskins told Adam Schefter on “The Adam Schefter podcast.” “Dan Snyder’s son goes to my high school so I have a connection there and of course Shawn Springs, who’s one of my mentors, played for the Redskins and still lives in the DMV area so of course being able to spend time over at the Redskins and meeting Doug Williams and spending time with coach Gruden, definitely I feel like that’s another possibility as well. Football is taken very seriously there and they are itching to win and if they draft me, I really hope that I can add to their franchise and bring some wins to the organization.”
Last year was the only year that Haskins started for the Buckeyes but he was impressive throwing for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns. There has been a lot of speculation that the New York Giants could take him with their first-round pick, but if he is there when the Redskins get to pick, this seems like a pick that would make a lot of sense for both teams.
Washington can only hope that he slips in the draft and that they get a chance to make him their long-term option under center.
