Washington Redskins Select Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins #15 Overall
With the 15th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins have determined their franchise QB, taking Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins.
This is a great pick, I’m a big fan of Haskins. In my opinion, he’s the most talented QB in this draft and should have the best career. He absolutely went off last year at THE Ohio State, racking up over 4800 yards and throwing for 50 TD’s. While I wouldn’t expect him to put up video game numbers as a rookie, at least the Redskins have a solid, young QB.
With Alex Smith’s injury concerns, the Redskins knew they needed a QB after last season’s collapse. Not to mention, they have a very solid offensive line when healthy, which is key for a young QB. Keeping Haskins clean in the pocket could be the difference between him being a Pro Bowler and a burnout.
I like how Haskins is set up in Washington, and really like the pick by the Redskins here. This should be a partnership that sets the football team from Washington up for longterm success in the NFC East.
