Redskins Training Camp Profile: QB Dwayne Haskins
Dwayne Haskins was drafted 15th overall by the Washington Redskins in hopes of developing into a franchise quarterback. But will he be the starter this season?
With Redskins training camp around the corner, the hype for the 2019 NFL season is growing. And with it, one of the biggest questions of the team’s offseason will soon be answered.
Who is the starting quarterback going to be?
When Alex Smith went down last season with a gruesome injury that almost cost him his leg, it became clear that the Redskins needed some reinforcements at quarterback. They now have three quarterbacks in the room, excluding Smith, that could have a legitimate case to be the starter this year. And one of them is Dwayne Haskins.
Haskins, a rookie, was drafted by the Redskins in hopes of being the quarterback of the future. The Ohio State product is coming off a great collegiate season and he will be looking to prove himself early in his NFL career. And his first chance to do that will come at 2019 Redskins training camp.
Here’s an in-depth look at what Haskins could offer the ‘Skins this year and what he will need to prove in order to have a crack at the starting job right away.
