As popular as Kyler Murray has become in recent weeks, Dwayne Haskins has been near the top of this year’s quarterback crop for a long time. Prospective NFL teams are finally getting a chance to meet with him, and it would appear he has quite a number of suitors.
According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Haskins is scheduled for meetings and workouts with no fewer than five NFL teams. Per the report, he will meet with the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins during the Ohio State Pro Day. After that, he is slated to visit the Washington Redskins, Denver Broncos, and New York Giants.
All five of those teams pick in the top-15, with Oakland, New York, and Denver picking in the top ten. More importantly, the five teams each have very pressing needs at the quarterback position.
In the coming days, Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins is scheduled to work out for Raiders and Dolphins in Columbus, and then he’s also scheduled to visit the Redskins, Broncos and Giants, per league sources.

As for which team is in the best position to draft him, that could be determined by whether the Arizona Cardinals choose to draft Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray No. 1 overall.
If they do, the Raiders might want to pull the trigger on Haskins when they make their selection at four – which could in turn cause a bidding war for a team looking to move in front of them.
Haskins finished third in the Heisman trophy voting this past year while having a record-breaking season with the Ohio State Buckeyes.
He broke just about every Ohio State or Big Ten passing record en route to a 13-1 season and a win in the Rose Bowl.
