Haskins Positives

Looking over the scouting reports on Dwayne Haskins there is plenty to like. He has many tools that successful NFL quarterbacks have. Starting with size, Haskins has the build of a pro quarterback at 6-3, 218 pounds. Here are three of his biggest positives.

One of the things that stands out about Haskins is his arm strength. Every report I read praised that dimension of his game. He throws bullets to his receivers. Additionally, he can throw the deep ball and stretch the field. His intermediate passes zip into tight windows and he isn’t afraid to throw the ball to a spot with authority.

Haskins is a pure pocket passer and his presence there is well above the norm. His ability to move around in the pocket and feel oncoming pressure is top notch. What impresses scouts is that he doesn’t get overly panicked under pressure. He won’t often run out of the pocket, rather he slides laterally or steps up to avoid oncoming rushers, patiently waiting for his receivers to get open.

Finally, Haskins sees the field well. He has come a long way in going through his receiver progressions. In addition, he does a decent job of reading defensive coverages especially taking advantage when his receivers can create a little separation from the men covering them.

Other areas he excels in are leadership, work ethic, and he doesn’t turn the ball over.
