Monday January 7, 2018, Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins has announced his decision to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft. After finishing third in this past year’s Heisman race, and defeating the University of Washington 28-23 in the 2019 Rose Bowl, Haskins has proven that he can contribute at the next level.
Aside from the sole loss to Purdue, Haskins led the Buckeyes to an impressive 13-1 record and another Big10 title for the scarlet and gray. In those fourteen games, Haskins set two new OSU single-season records in both passing yards and passing touchdowns. He finished the year with 4,831 yards through the air, 50 touchdown passes and just eight interceptions.
With Haskins leaving Columbus, this will inevitably set the stage for one of college football’s biggest off-season stories being the quarterback competition set to take place between Tate Martell, and incoming Georgia transfer Justin Fields. Expect Haskins to be one of the top three signal callers taken in the 2019 NFL Draft.
