Will Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Dwayne Haskins be taken by the Denver Broncos? He thinks they might be one of the top options.
Nobody knows what’s going to happen in the 2019 NFL Draft, including the players about to be selected by the 32 different NFL teams. Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins may have his list narrowed down to just a couple of teams, though.
Speaking with Dan Patrick, Haskins threw out the Washington Redskins, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders (seriously), and Denver Broncos as four teams he felt might be likely to pick him.

Haskins will not be attending the NFL Draft in Nashville. He will instead be spending the annual selection process with his family, going bowling.
When was the last time we heard about a top QB prospect bowling during the NFL Draft?
Haskins, more specifically, will be in Washington, DC at the time of the NFL Draft. That’s interesting because the Redskins are rumored to be the team most interested in trading up in this year’s draft for a quarterback, though there are mixed reports about which QB they are targeting.
One recent rumor has the Redskins trading up to the top five picks to take Duke’s Daniel Jones.
How crazy would that be?
Haskins seems really unsure about the Giants’ interest in that video, and every indicator out there right now is that Dave Gettleman is not taking a QB at 6 but you just never know.
The Redskins would have to jump into the top 10 picks to get a QB they covet simply because the threat of one of these other teams taking one is there.
What’s really interesting in that interview with Dan Patrick is when Patrick says he thinks Haskins will go to either Washington or Denver, and Haskins says, “I can agree with that. Yeah, I’m alright with that.”
If the Redskins trade up for a quarterback and it’s not Haskins. Well, you put the two together.
Haskins is generally considered the second-best quarterback prospect in this year’s class behind Kyler Murray of Oklahoma. Some have him ranked ahead of Murray.
Haskins wore a John Elway jersey on his visit with Denver, which also came during a snowstorm. He was also the player specifically named by Broncos star Von Miller as the guy he’d like the team to draft.
He’s considered a great student of the game and excellent on the whiteboard, but there are legitimate concerns about his body type and athleticism.
Haskins is a heck of a quarterback and showed this past season at Ohio State he is capable of loading up the stat sheet while making minimal mistakes. The Broncos would be drafting Haskins in hopes that he would be able to help them compete with MVP Patrick Mahomes for the foreseeable future after a year or so of Joe Flacco.
