Ohio State football QB Dwyane Haskins walks into a tough situation as his new team, the Washington Redskins, is reportedly divided over his selection.
The Ohio State football program sent quarterback Dwayne Haskins to the Redskins with the 15th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
And poor Haskins is already entering the vortex of dysfunction.
Immediately after the pick was made, ESPN’s Dianna Russini reportedthere was not a consensus agreement on Haskins. But the owner, Dan Snyder, as well GM Bruce Allen favored the pick, and that’s why Haskins’ name was called.
The Browns have gone through their fair share of quarterbacks, but the Redskins are no stranger to turmoil at the position. Even when they have someone good (Kirk Cousins) they find a way to run him out of town.
Haskins left school early and he doesn’t seem to be someone who can walk right into the QB1 spot from the onset. His highlight reel was full of deep throws, but concerns in the pre-draft process centered around his anticipation issues.
If you’re reading his, chances are you’ve read something on the Browns here during their quarterback woes. For a young signal caller to be successful, it’s really important he has the support of the entire organization.
If that’s not the case, then you get text messages a la Ray Farmer and John Manziel, being sent down to the sideline demanding he play.
Once you get past that dysfunction stuff, then you’ve got to consider who’s around Haskins. The Redskins could always add help later in the draft, but with a corps of Paul Richardson, Josh Doctson and Darlin Kidsy, well, Browns fans know what a lesser wideout group looks like.
Haskins can always make Snyder look brilliant here, but that’s not been something to do ever since he took ownership of the Redskins.
