On Thursday night, the Redskins waited, waited and waited again. Then they used their No. 15 overall pick on Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, a D.C. native who spent high school at The Bullis School in Potomac, Md.
Haskins' father, Dwayne Haskins Sr., doesn't think the Redskins will have to wait much longer to return to the promised land.
"Since yesterday, I thought the Redskins would be the ideal pick," he told reporters after the announcement was made at family's draft party in Gaithersburg, Md.
But the elder Haskins didn't stop there. "I predict ... get ready for a Super Bowl." He was then asked why he thought a Super Bowl is on the horizon.
"I can just see the makeup of where the 'Skins are about to go. You can just see that they're dedicated in the area of improving with the quarterback position and bringing in free agents.
I can see them winning a Super Bowl very soon."
The Redskins have not appeared in a Super Bowl since 1992 and have only reached the playoffs six times then.
Let's start with a winning season and work our way from there.
