Dwayne Haskins set to visit with Redskins and Broncos

Dwayne Haskins will visit the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos this week.

The 21-year-old quarterback has a huge streak of days on tap ahead of the April 25th’s NFL Draft, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Haskins has reportedly met with the New York GiantsOakland Raiders, and Miami Dolphins. The Raiders reportedly held a private workout for him in March, per Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com.

Recent mock drafts have Haskins slotted to go No. 15 overall to the Redskins. He is No. 21 on NFL draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah’s top 40 prospects list.

Haskins’ arm strength and downfield finesse attracts franchises like the Redskins and Broncos, who are both currently in the running for a quarterback that can turn things around for the future.

Denver traded for Joe Flacco in February, but it’s likely he will just be short-term remedy in the offense. Haskins is an asset brimmed with potential in the NFL, and head coach Vic Fangio would have a solid centerpiece to build an offense around. The Broncos finished with losing seasons the past two years, and turned in a 6-10 record in 2018-19.

Washington traded for Case Keenum last month to occupy the starting quarterback role with Alex Smith’s playing future uncertain. Haskins would make a tremendous fit on a team that has no primary play initiator.

The Ohio State product recorded 5,396 yards passing, 413 completions, 54 touchdowns, and nine interceptions in 22 career NCAA games.

Haskins has legitimate star potential at the next level and should be the second quarterback off the board behind Kyler Murray.
