Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins has yet to announce his NFL draft decision, though many people expect he will enter the 2019 NFL Draft. Haskins has until mid-January to decide.

Earlier today, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that Haskins received a first-round grade from the NFL's advisory board. A player can receive a first or second-round projection or advice to return to school.

If Haskins' trainer Quincy Avery is to be believed, that first-round grade will be enough to get Haskins to leave school.

In late September, Yahoo's Pete Thamel wrote a feature on Haskins. In it, Avery said a first-round projection would likely be enough to get Haskins to leave school.

If Oregon's Justin Herbert elects to return to school, Haskins could be the No. 1 overall quarterback prospect in the 2019 draft class, which might be enough to entice a team to pick him in the top 10.

Haskins and the Buckeyes will play Washington in the Rose Bowl on January 1. Any decision for the redshirt sophomore will come sometime after that.

The Rose Bowl will kick off at 5 p.m. ET on ESPN.
