Dwayne Haskins Scouting Report

What I Like:

Throw Accuracy

Dwayne Haskins shows to have good accuracy on all throws. Additionally, he throws with good anticipation and delivers the ball where only a receiver can make a play on the ball quite often.

 

What I Dislike:

Pocket Presence

This video is also from the 2019 Rose Bowl, but illustrates my observation perfectly. Haskins has several receivers open, but fails to see them. He also fails to sense the pressure behind him and holds onto the ball for too long, resulting in a sack.

 

Big Arm

Ohio State used a lot of screens and crossing routes to open up the field, which gave Haskins some great opportunities to display his throw power. Haskins has an above average arm and places this ball perfectly for the receiver, resulting in the touchdown.

 

Overall Breakdown

Dwayne Haskins is only a one-year starter for Ohio State, but quickly put on display why he’s one of the top quarterbacks in this draft class. Dwayne Haskins has the mechanics and traits needed to play the quarterback position at the next level. Needs to play with more consistency and progress through his reads quicker. May need to sit for a year to develop. Shows at times that he hurries throws and lacks accuracy in simple pitch-and-catch type of throws.

 

Draft Round Prediction

Top-Fifteen Pick

Barring a trade, the earliest we could see Haskins come off the board is likely sixth to the Giants. I don’t envision a scenario in which Haskins makes it past Washington with the fifteenth pick.
