Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DWAYNE HASKINS: Ohio State, 6033 231 5.03. Underclass entry from Potomac, MD. A one year starter after backing up JT Barrett for one year. As a red-shirt freshman Barrett was injured versus Michigan and Haskins came in and rolled up 217 yards in total offense in 30 plays, rallying the Buckeyes to 17 consecutive points in a comeback win. The top passing quarterback in Ohio State history set 28 Buckeye records in 2018 and seven Big 10 records, including single season passing yards (4831), touchdown passes (50), and total yards (4939). The Big 10 championship game MVP became only the sixth FBS player to pass for 50 touchdowns in a season. Haskins along with all the numerous player of the year awards and miscellaneous accolades was a two-time Academic All- Big 10 conference honoree. His off-the-field and classroom intellect carried over onto the football field by making good decisions and on-the-field leadership. The first year starter showed remarkable poise and consistency from the first to the last game. Center Michael Jordan rolled back snaps all year and Haskins scooped up the grounders like a shortstop and kept the play in motion like nothing had happened. The big, right-handed passer is athletic. He steps up in the pocket and whips a velocity-filled catchable bullet downfield, hitting a streaking receiver in stride. Throws to his receivers with touch and spot-on ball placement. Even in his pro day workout, Haskins made a special point to throw a pass to his receivers that if they were covered the ball was away from the defense where only the receiver could make a play on the ball. The rhythm type pocket passer spread the ball around to several different receivers. Most will be playing on Sundays. The confident and competitive passer demonstrated that he could handle new situations, make adjustments, and was disciplined with the ball. His week to week performance was consistent and could handle game management, adversity that different types of weather and wind could bring. In his one year of action, he was durable. He could shake off arm tackles and survive a big hit. When the reliable athlete misses on throws, it’s usually high and away from defenders. He only threw eight interceptions in 533 attempts last fall. Threw a blend of horizontal and vertical passes using play action, drop back, and run/pass option. Has no problem throwing the ball away. Stands tall in the pocket and scans the field reading his progressions. He blends in a shoulder shake, pump fake, and eye manipulation to move a defensive back. Although not a runner, he can scramble for positive yards to pick up a first down or score. The last four games of his Buckeye career he engineered an overtime win over Maryland, beat Michigan with six touchdown passes, threw five touchdown passes in the Big 10 championship game over Northwestern, and was named MVP in the Rose Bowl. Haskins’ decision making, accuracy, and the ability to win from the pocket all bode well for success on the next level. 2018 stats: 373/533, 4831 yds, 70%, 50 TD, 8 INT, 108 yds rushing, 4 TD, 174.1 QB rating. Ball velocity 52 mph. OSR:14/16. First round. (A-33 1/4, H-9 5/8, SS-DNP, VJ-28.5).
