Dwayne Haskins is already calling his shot!
Viewed as one of the top quarterback prospects in the upcoming NFL Draft, the Ohio State quarterback officially declared for the 2019 NFL Draft just before the College Football National Championship game. This decision put him in the sights of multiple teams and increased the pressure of the College Football Playoffs. His NFL prospects improved even more when Justin Herbert from the University of Oregon decided to forego the draft and return to college for his senior season.
Interestingly, Haskins isn't letting the added pressure affect him. In fact, he's actually trying to predict that he will be one of the top picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Ohio State quarterback sent out a tweet on Monday evening, depicting himself in a New York Giants uniform. He added the text "Don't let me go back to the crib.." in reference to him being a New Jersey native. Essentially, he's warning teams against letting Big Blue take him with the sixth-overall pick. It's a similar move to the one that Peyton Manning made to the Colts when he warned the team that he would "kick their butts" if they didn't draft him.
