Presumably Dwayne Haskins would possibly presumably possibly well be to take into accounta good fit for correct about anybody.
The 6-foot-3, 230-pound prospective first-round selection out of Ohio Insist has seemingly made the most of his visits leading up to Thursday’s NFL Draft.
He drew headlines when he wore a John Elway jersey to meet with the Denver Broncos. He had lunch with Eli Manning and dinner with the Recent York Giants brass.
And now, the quarterback who broke data as a Buckeye looks to hang constructed mutual curiosity with the Washington Redskins, who hang at No. 15 in the opening round.
“There would possibly be surely one thing there,” Haskins mentioned Monday on NFL Community’s As much as the Minute. “I maintain fancy there is a gargantuan relationship with the Redskins. My mentor Shawn Springs played for the Redskins. Mountainous relationship with [owner] Mr. [Daniel] Snyder and the the rest of the Redskins ownership. Whatever team picks me, I would possibly possibly be indignant to be a fraction of, however there is surely one thing there in D.C.”
Earlier than his days at Ohio Insist, where as a senior he threw for a program- and Spacious 10-file 50 touchdowns alongside with 4,831 yards, Haskins went to excessive college in Maryland. So, geographically, taking part in for Washington makes heaps of sense.
“For me in declare to return in D.C., somewhere where I also grew up at, went to excessive college at,” Haskins mentioned, “is without difficulty a amount of enjoyable for me in declare to utilize time with [Doug Williams], coach Gruden and the the rest of the offensive employees. I focus on the Redskins are a gargantuan space to be.”
Along with his time and tribulations at Ohio Insist, the Cincinnati Bengals would also seem to be a fit, however Haskins mentioned he had no longer talked to them since the combine.
So in all probability Washington would possibly presumably possibly be a gargantuan space to be for Haskins, as Alex Smith is on the comeback plod from a grotesque leg damage and Case Keenum seems to handiest be a transient-time period starter.
“We wished a quarterback and we had been in a location to alternate for Case, however that would now not place us out of the realm of picking a quarterback if there is one there that we fancy at 15,” Williams mentioned on Monday. “We accomplish no longer know who’s going to be there at 15.”
After all, changing into the heir obvious to Manning would possibly possibly be a seemingly scenario with Spacious Blue drafting at No. 6, so the Redskins would possibly presumably possibly wish to pass up via alternate if Haskins is indeed their signal-caller of the future.
“I accomplish no longer know. I educated ’em to [come get me], however we’ll gaze what occurs,” Haskins mentioned of encouraging Washington to work a alternate for him.
Haskins later walked that aid a chunk.
“I didn’t notify them to, Shawn did,” he mentioned. “So, that’s one other dialog.”
Alas, on Monday, Williams educated the media that trading up modified into no longer going.
“Smartly, I’ve mentioned all alongside, the prospect of trading up is loads slimmer than trading aid,” Williams mentioned. “I will plod on the file and stammer that’s a probability that shall we no longer alternate up, however there is a gargantuan probability we’ll alternate aid if that alternative came.”
Both means, Haskins is having hundreds conversations this day, however no longer lower than three days before the first round, there is “surely one thing there” with the Redskins.
