The Big Ten hasn’t had great success when it comes to quarterbacks and the NFL Draft over the past couple of decades.
It’s been more than 20 years since a Big Ten quarterback went in the first round of the NFL Draft.
That changed tonight.
Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins has finally been taken in the NFL Draft, going No. 15 overall to the Washington Redskins.
The Redskins considered trading up for Haskins, though he ultimately ended up falling to them with their No. 15 overall pick.

Haskins becomes the first Big Ten quarterback to go in Round 1 since Kerry Collins in 1995.

Big Ten quarterbacks have had plenty of success once they got into the NFL, of course, from Tom Brady to Drew Brees.
Will Haskins be the league’s next great NFL quarterback?
