The count down until NFL Draft Day is on for fans and draft hopefuls alike. Of those hopefuls is the quarterback out of Ohio State, Dwayne Haskins.
ESPN's Adam Schefter sat down with the QB to discuss his plans for Thursday night, the role of his mentors and potentially playing for his hometown team.
If drafted in the first round, as expected, Haskins will become the second Ohio State quarterback ever to go that early. However, he is not putting too much pressure on Draft Night. He plans to be with family and friends bowling so he is not glued to the TV. "I'm sure I will get a phone call before the pick is in so I can stop everything I am doing to watch it", Haskins joked.
Leading up to the draft, the quarterback met with five teams: Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos, New York Giants and Washington Redskins.
How does Haskins feel about the idea of playing for the Redskins? "Definitely HTTR." Haskins has an inside look of the Redskins organization via his mentor Shawn Springs, who was with the team for five seasons. "Football is taken very seriously down there and they are itching to win. If they draft me I hope I can add to the franchise and bring some wins to that organization."
Draft Night is a dream come true for Haskins who will graduate in May. "Just to be able to hear my name called on Draft Day is something that I dreamed of for years...just to realize that all the work was worth it. That's going to be an unbelievable moment for me," said Haskins.
Haskins received plenty of advice about how to mentally and physically prepare for his NFL career. Watching film and preparing his body is half the battle. Haskins knows, "You do what you need to do to last in the league." For now, he is enjoying the process, the last piece of advice given to him by his mentors.
