Monday Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins made the decision to leave the Buckeyes and enter the 2019 NFL draft.
Many felt the decision coming, but now that it’s official, he’s likely to be the top QB taken in the draft, and the Giants are one team that is going to have their eyes on him.
Haskins says he’s got feelings to play in the Big Apple as well.
Pro Football Talk reports that Haskins is hoping to play for the Giants. In a profile of Haskins by Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune in December, it was mentioned to Haskins that the Giants needed a quarterback and might be a good place to start his career.
Haskins, who grew up in New Jersey, replied: “I’m hoping for that too.”
The Giants, who had a rough year under new coach Pat Shurmur, are going to need a QB as Eli Manning is entering the twilight of his career, and there’s no doubt they will be interested in whoever can play the position.
Haskins had a monster year for the Buckeyes, as he completed 70.0 percent of his pass attempts for 4,831 yards, 50 touchdowns, and just eight interceptions. Haskins also scored four touchdowns with his legs.
Standing in at 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, Haskins is also the ideal size for an NFL quarterback, and could be New York bound.
