Dwayne Haskins is the top quarterback in the 2019 class, and it really is not close. Haskins projects well to the NFL. Physically, he is incredibly smooth and has all of the physical tools to become a dominant player. He is a traditional pocket passer. At this moment, I would compare him to players like Jared Goff and Carson Wentz, in terms of prospect caliber. If he had another year in college he would be in the elite prospect tier with Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning.

Here are two of Haskins’ throws from the Big 10 Championship Game, which show off his immense arm talent…

This displays the strides Haskins made in his ability to create when the pocket collapses. He showed that he is a hard man to bring down, and that he always keeps his eyes downfield when scrambling.

His downfield accuracy is highlighted here. He has a clean pocket and he steps up and drops the ball in the bucket.
