The 2019 NFL Draft is just over two months away, but team’s have been doing their research on potential draft choices for the past year. College football’s best players will learn their fate during the first round of the draft on Thursday, April 25.
Among the names expected to be called first is former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins.
The former Buckeyes star finished third in Heisman voting and is primed to be the first quarterback off the board in late April.
The draft order suggests the New York Giants are the most-logical landing spot for Haskins. Although the Giants hold the No. 6 pick, they’re the first team with a need at the quarterback position.
How would Haskins feel about joining the Giants? According to a recent interview with Newsday, he would “love” it.
“I would love it. I grew up watching Eli Manning back when he had [Jeremy] Shockey and [Amani] Toomer and Plaxico [Burress]. I loved that team.”
The New Jersey native has been linked to the Giants since he entered his name into the draft.
While it seems like a good fit, anything is possible during the draft – just ask Giants fans who wanted to draft a quarterback over Saquon Barkley.
