Profile

Summary: Haskins makes the majority of his plays in the pocket, as he has limited mobility but a powerful arm that gets the ball to its target. A projected first-round pick by numerous mock drafts, Haskins is comfortable in the spotlight after playing for the Buckeyes.

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com wrote that “Haskins is going to be forced to learn on the fly against NFL speed and defensive coordinators conspiring to defeat him. His athletic limitations could keep him pocket-bound, but he has the arm talent, confidence and pocket savvy to become a good NFL starter if he's protected and given the time to develop early on.”

Stacking up: NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks has Haskins ranked as the No. 1 quarterback in the 2019 draft. Ditto for draft analyst Dane Brugler, who writes for The Athletic and has Haskins as the top quarterback prospect.
