Dwayne Haskins moves closer to entering NFL draft

AP

Three days ago, Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins was 50-50 to enter the NFL draft. His chances of heading to the next level now seem stronger than a coin flip.

Per a league source, at least some Buckeyes teammates believe Haskins is leaving. PFT previously has reported that Haskins is indeed expected to leave college football.

The NFL’s draft advisory board gave Haskins a first-round projection. If that happens, he’ll be only the third Ohio State quarterback to become a first-round draft pick.

As MDS recently explained, there’s a chance Haskins could end up being the first overall pick. Depending on the draft stock of Nick Bosa, a pair of Ohio State players could end up being the first two selections.

  1. Can you imagine the media outrage if he doesn’t go in the first round? CNN would lose their minds.

  2. Bust. Struggled against the likes of Purdue and Maryland. Should have lost against Penn State too. He needs another year in school because he is nowhere near ready for the pros.

  3. If he Hopes to have a successful NFL career, count me among those who would counsel him to stay in school another year. He’s young and doesnt have 15 games of college football experience.

  4. Not sure where people come from saying these star athletes should stay in school when you can come out now and be an instant multi-millionaire playing a game you love. So he should risk his career playing another year in college for free and potentially suffering a serious or even career threatening injury to continue his liberal arts or whatever nonsense b.s degree that their prob barely passing in that wont pay anything in the real world anyway? Who would do that as opposed to setting up their family and future generations in???

    He had an off game against Purdue, but I have no clue how you hold him responsible for a close game against Maryland (28 of 38 passes completed, 405 yards, 3 TD). When your offense puts up 52 and you squeak by, the blame sits with the defense, not the QB

    Or, if he’s lucky: he comes out, spends a year on the bench learning, and then starts (Mahomes route) – all while getting paid. While his skill has a say in how he does, the team he’s drafted by and their approach plays a big role, and right now that’s all a role of the dice. Either way, he’d be set for life, so I’d definitely not blame the guy for going pro.

  7. Well… you cant go wrong with selecting an Ohio State QB for your team !!

    I mean they’ve produced…

    Uh…

    And…

    And who could forget…

    Mike Tomczak ?

  8. Arizona Cardinals will be the losers in all this. They “think” they have their “QB” in Rosen, but in 10 years when Haskins is winning titles, hopefully with the Bengals, they will look back in disbelief that he could have been their QB instead of some guy that will be lucky to last 4 years in the NFL lol.

  9. The highest Haskins will go is 3. If the Jets trade down. The Cardinals, 49ers and Jets aren’t looking for a QB. Nobody is going to jump all the way to 1 when there isn’t a reason to. Maybe the Raiders might be interested in Haskins. Hence the highest he’ll go is 3 if some team like Denver or San Diego wants to leap the Raiders.

  10. I think the kid has a real shot to make it. He does remind me of Mahomes. Keep in mind, he was hampered by Meyer’s Pop Warner offense. I think if he gets on a team with a coach who has a clue and can develop him, he could be another guy like Mahomes. He can certainly throw it. The kid has some guts. He came in last year after J.T. Barrett was hurt against Michigan and played extremely well for a guy who had virtually no playing time that year. When you can come into a pressure situation like that and play lights out, that’s saying something. I think you guys need to give him a chance before calling him a bust. A lot of these same guys were calling Joey Bosa and Ezekiel Elliott busts. How did that work out?

  11. Mike Tomczak was an amazing QB. Amazing that, with such a lack of talent, he actually lasted in the league for 15 years and had 73 starts and played 185 games. He only had 4 seasons where he had more TD’s than INT’s, and finished his career with a 53% completion rate and more INT’s than TD’s. No one with such little talent could last in the league for that long today. I, for one, salute someone who was so bad at his job and yet was able to keep it for 15 years, and even had the audacity to hold out twice on contracts. Imaging being an auto mechanic who can’t fix cars getting paid, and then going on strike to get paid more for having no ability- for 15 years! That’s Mike Tomczak.

  12. Dwayne Haskins moves closer to entering NFL draft…because Ohio State QB’s have historically done so well in the NFL…think Bobby Hoying has played the most games as a QB and Tom Matte was the most famous, am I right Buckeye fans?

    >>>Are you kidding me, those kinds of stats are getting a lot of the QBs drafted in the 1st round now days! Have you looked at some of these NFL QBs stats in the last few years? Or noticed how often teams are looking for another QB? I’d say Tomczak would be about a slightly below average QB these days.

    QB play in the NFL is getting far worse, if it wasn’t you wouldn’t see guys like Manziel, Allen, Weeden and a lot of these others going in the 1st round and the BUST rate for QBs drafted in the 1st round since 2000 wouldn’t be well over 60%, THAT’S SAD!!!

  14. Dwayne is going to be a better QB than 2 of the young starting QBs in the
    NFL Playoffs (Baltimore and Houston’s QB).
