Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins had a pre-draft visit with the Denver Broncos Wednesday. These top-30 visits can’t include a physical workout, which can lead to a stressful decision for the prospects: What do they wear?
Most prospects go the business casual route—it’s a job interview after all. A smaller number err on the formal side and wear a suit and tie or blazer and slacks. (I’m told that, when Temple CB Rock Ya-Sin showed up in a suit for his visit in Pittsburgh, the only one to do so among the team’s visits, the Steelers noticed.) Others dress extremely casual, with a trendy tracksuit and sneakers.
Haskins took a different tack in Denver. The 21-year-old decided to have some fun with his outfit and, according to multiple sources, wore a throwback No. 7 John Elway jersey to his interview.
Ever since Haskins visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a reward for getting good grades in seventh grade, he’s been interested in the history of the game and, specifically, its greatest quarterbacks. He wore No. 7 at Ohio State, partly because of his admiration for Elway, who, of course, is searching for the Broncos’ next franchise quarterback.
