Dwayne Haskins NFL Draft Profile

Height: 6’3″ Weight: 231lbs School: Ohio State

Strengths

Command of offense is evident the minute you put on the tape. Seems to be a solid pre-snap processor and adjusts protections and play calls. Able to mix launch points and trajectory to be precise on touch throws. Threads ball in between zones beautifully and places the ball well relative to coverage. Knows how to layer his passes in between zones and is capable of making some high level throws over the middle of the field. Sideline passes arrive with plenty of heat and are well placed. Uses eyes to manipulate and is a good processor of peripheral coverage. Anticipatory kind of thrower. Anticipates windows well in between zones and before receivers come out of their breaks.  Processes keys well, quick to ID defense and knows where to go with the football. Excels in short game with snappy decision making and excellent placement on underneath throws. Timing and rhythm based thrower. Reads layered concepts well and is quick to pull trigger when he IDs open man. A reliably speedy processor in the quick game and finds underneath throws in the face of pressure. Plenty of arm and can generate adequate velocity to all levels. Quick release, ball often comes out cleanly and on time. Generates power from driving off back foot and torquing through his hips when kept clean

Weaknesses

Not remotely mobile, won’t create much when scrambling and NFL rushers will get home at a high clip when he tries to escape. Feet get really sloppy in the quick game. Doesn’t plant and step into throws, would like to see him throw with more consistent lower body mechanics. Won’t step into throws when space is limited in the pocket and sacrifices precise placement as a result. This holds especially true on deep passes,  often ending up underthrown. Has some flashes processing edge pressure and manoeuvring in the pocket, but internal clock needs to improve, especially vs blitzes.

Summary

Strong-armed QB with desired frame and ability to operate a quick passing attack at a high level. Processing skills improved notably during his lone season of starting experience at Ohio State. Lacks the mobility to create under pressure and needs to build more solid throwing foundation in his lower half. Lack of adequate throwing base impacts deep ball badly.

Projection

Haskins has the tools to be an above average starter in the NFL and the improvement he has shown processing coverages and working through progressions towards the end of the season is encouraging for his NFL outlook. In the right situation, I can see Haskins becoming a top 15 QB in the NFL.

2019 QUARTERBACK SUPERLATIVES: . Most Pro Ready: Dwayne Haskins – Haskins shows excellent accuracy, anticipation and ability to ID coverages post snap. These traits suggest Haskins will succeed early in his career and I would project Haskins translates as the best day 1 starter from this class . Highest Ceiling: Kyler Murray – Rare physical tools for a QB and his tape has flashes of a pocket sized Pat Mahomes. Murray's arm talent, natural accuracy and dynamic running ability combine for a rare package of tools at the QB position. Which if developed properly could lead to Kyler becoming one of the best QBs in the league . Best Developmental Prospect: Tyree Jackson – Tyree is the type of QB a contender with an aging QB may take a chance on. There are flashes of high end physical tools with him and an intriguing frame, but the inconsistency is troubling. His mechanics need a complete overhaul and he must become more consistent with his placement . Most Underrated: Brett Rypien – I believe Rypien can be a capable starter down the line. His accuracy to all levels is solid and he sees the field well. He won't wow with arm talent, but if there is a mid round QB prospect I am willing to bet on developing into a starter in this year's class, it's Rypien . #nfl #nflfootball #nflupdates #nflnews #sports #nfldraft #nfldraft2019 #cfb #collegefootball #ncaa #ncaafootball #nflplayoffs #nflcombine

PROSPECT HEAD TO HEAD: KYLER MURRAY VS DWAYNE HASKINS . Accuracy – Murray's placement varies when getting the ball out quick and he forces adjustments from his WRs. Haskins shows superior accuracy in the quick game and in the intermediate areas of the field. He can thread the ball between zones over the middle and routinely hits receivers in stride. Murray does have superior natural deep ball accuracy routinely dropping the ball over the receivers shoulder, something Haskins struggles with . Reads/Decision Making – Clear win for Haskins here. His processing of coverage post snap, ability to work late into progressions and pre snap anticipation are at a much higher level than Murray's . Pocket Management – Murray has some struggles finding space in the pocket to step up into. However, his mobility is a real asset escaping pressure and he does a good job anticipating blitzes. On the other hand, Haskins has a solid feel for stepping up against edge pressure but, he fails to set his base with pressure closing in and his overall feel for time in the pocket is a concern. Both have good moments managing the pocket but neither excel here. Tie . Arm Talent – In terms of velocity generated on throws, I don't think much separates these 2. Murray's natural ability to adjust his arm angle, velocity and maintain accuracy on the move give him the edge here . Mobility – Maybe we should ask Stephen A about this one… Clearly this is a win for Kyler. Haskins lack of mobility is apparent to anyone who actually watches the tape. We all know how explosive Kyler is . Mechanics – Both have a quick release and pretty clean upper body mechanics. Haskins can really let his base get away from him and it impacts his consistency placing the ball. Murray does a good job following through on his throws and more often than not aligns his feet with his eyes. I'd give Kyler the win here . Who do you think is QB1 in the 2019 NFL Draft? . #nfl #nflfootball #nflupdates #nflnews #sports #nfldraft #nfldraft2019 #cfb #collegefootball #ncaa #ncaafootball #nflplayoffs #nflcombine #kylermurray
