6. New York Giants: Ohio State Quarterback Dwayne Haskins
Sooner or later, the time will come for the New York Giants to adjust to playing on offense without Eli Manning. And after deciding to roll with Saquon Barkley with their top pick from last year’s draft, it only seems fitting to go with a quarterback this time around since the last thing they want to do is miss out on a top prospect from the upcoming class.
Dwayne Haskins has caught the attention of numerous teams looking to improve at the quarterback position following a stellar sophomore campaign at Ohio State in which he nearly threw for 5,000 yards to go along with 50 touchdown passes.
Prior to the combine, the Giants were already considered a strong landing spot for Haskins since he seemed to be a perfect fit at No. 6, and after hearing how impressed New York was with the quarterback’s performance in Indianapolis, it seems even more fitting.
From the perspective of Haskins, one can only imagine how much the quarterback would flourish playing in an offense like the Giants with Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr to work with as two of his favorite targets.
What would make this even more exciting is taking into consideration how young each of these three stars are, and the potential surrounding New York’s offense for years to come.
