With the No. 15 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Redskins selected Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins. Linked together in rumors throughout the past few months, the scenario played out perfectly for the two to come together.
While we don't know what his future in the burgundy and gold holds, here's what we do already know about the first-round pick.
He's coming back to the DMV
After spending a few years in the midwest, Haskins is returning to the place where his football career took off. Playing out his high school career at Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland, he'll now get to begin his NFL career pretty close to home.
He can flat out sling it
Obviously, you're going to want to know the stats, and they're pretty darn impressive. In his one full season as the quarterback at Ohio State, Haskins threw for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns, putting together an all-time single-season performance. Throughout the year, he showed his ability to launch the ball downfield and stay poised in the pocket.
He's in rare company
Ohio State has produced a lot of quarterbacks, but not many have gone in the first round. In fact, only two in the entire history of the program have been selected in the first round prior to Haskins (Don Scott, 1941 and Art Schlichter, 1982).
He'll try and break the mold
Sticking with the theme of Buckeye quarterback's, Haskins will look to change the trend that recent ones have experienced. Despite the recent collegiate success of players such as Cardale Jones, Braxton Miller, J.T. Barrett, Terell Pryor, Troy Smith and others, Ohio State passers have not had much luck in the NFL. You'd be hard pressed to find the last Buckeye passer to have a dominant career in the NFL. Haskins has a chance to fix that.
He majored in journalism
Haskins was a two-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree during his time on campus while majoring in journalism. If the whole quarterback thing doesn't work out, maybe he can come and steal my job.
