Dwayne Haskins will be top pocket passer in draft (1:25)

Former Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins has a prototypical stature and all the tools to be a successful pro. Will he go to the Giants at No. 6? (1:25)

Quarterback Dwayne Haskins led Ohio State's pro day on Wednesday ahead of April's 2019 NFL draft. He is currently my No. 1-ranked QB prospect and No. 8-ranked prospect overall. Sure, pro days are scripted and controlled, but Haskins looked impressive in Columbus, showcasing his ability to hit various types of throws.

Here's what we learned from Haskins' workout, with some added notes about the Buckeyes' Nick Bosa and Parris Campbell.


What did Haskins focus on most in the workout?

A week after Oklahoma's Kyler Murray drove home his capability of making throws in the pocket, Haskins went the other direction, showing his ability to make throws on the run. He is the best pocket passer in the class, but he needed to display what he can do when getting off the initial spot. As is the case with most pocket QBs, Haskins is less consistent in terms of accuracy and efficiency when on the move, especially out to his left.

But with added emphasis this afternoon, he impressed in that area. He was climbing the pocket, making the off-balance throws, getting the ball out on the move and using many different arm angles.
