Mike Mayock: Dwayne Haskins put on a show

AP

Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins specifically mentioned the Raiders among the teams he has scheduled private workouts. Oakland has three first-round draft picks, so could they use one on a quarterback despite having Derek Carr?

Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock came away impressed with what Haskins did during his Pro Day on Wednesday.

“He threw really well,” Mayock said, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. “I thought he put on a show. I thought his receivers put on a show. That’s typical for Ohio State. They did a great job.”

Haskins had dinner with the Giants on Tuesday night. He has a private workout on campus with the Dolphins and also with Denver, Washington and the Giants later.

Haskins is not expected to last long on draft day after passing for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns last season for Ohio State.

  1. This is the period of misinformation. Mike Mayock is smart enough to know how his words would be interpreted, and it strikes me as a guy who wants someone (i.e. the Giants) to try and move into the top-3 to grab Haskins, leaving one of the top defenders for the Raiders to select.

  2. Probably nothing more than subterfuge. Getting a team to vote in a trade up. Either to the Raiders, or a higher team so Bosa or Williams drops.

  3. Ohio State and, more specifically, Urban Meyer, does not develop QBs for the NFL. When was the last time an Ohio State QB succeeded in the pros? Their last 10 quarterbacks are…

    Dwayne Haskins
    Cardale Jones
    J.T. Barrett
    Braxton Miller
    Terrelle Pryor
    Todd Boeckman
    Troy Smith
    Justin Zwick
    Craig Krenzel
    Steve Bellisari

    50 TD last season at Ohio state???

    ============================================

    Yes he was phenomenal last year. Also, its THE Ohio State University.

  5. Two things are crystal clear. 1) Gruden wants his own guys 2) He’s not giving away any clues as to which players he wants to keep, and which players he’s planning on replacing. My money says the Raiders are taking a serious look at Haskins.

  6. Ive said it before, this dude is the real deal. He has a pro arm. 50 touchdowns, cmon. Ive watched all 50. No fluke. Teams that pass on him will regret it.

    NO college currently develops QB’s for the NFL. That’s why there’s so much emphasis on selecting QB who’s “NFL ready”.

  8. Is Gruden crazy enough to pick Haskins as a backup and let Carr groom him, in a way, for a few years when perhaps Carr’s contract isn’t feasible anymore? Probably not. Hyping up to trade for picks probably.

  9. NO college currently develops QB’s for the NFL. That’s why there’s so much emphasis on selecting QB who’s “NFL ready”.///////

    They are not very good at developing offensive linemen either. Every team goes through offensive linemen. Some teams have done a better job identifying them but there always seems to be a shortage league wide. Partly do to injuries at the positions and the style of play in the college game.

  10. Now all the draft “experts” will change their minds say that the Raiders will trade with Arizona and draft Haskins instead of Murray #1. I want Allen.

  11. Yeah, Ohio State doesn’t produce NFL QBs because Meyer was running read options since Utah. For once he got a prototypical pocket quarterback and with a good offensive coordinator, that guy lit up the scoreboard. Maybe dudes should watch the film instead.

  12. Who See’s Derek Carr as a probowl QB? He has not done much of anything these past few years…Do you really think that Amari Cooper was that bad? Perhaps a guy that can actually throw the ball is the way to go…You do need defense…but Carr is not on my Fantasy Football Teams

  13. Wow, Mayock isn’t very bright. “Typical of Ohio State”. That’s like all but admitting their QBs look good….in college. He showed his cards and if the dummy I am can pick that up, what do you think respected GMs will decipher from that? They are not taking him 4th. Gruden’s foolishness is rubbing off on this guy.
