Injury History- None (+1).
Arm Talent: Very good arm strength, holds up better against most of the class. Displays good touch on some passes but maintains a good velocity through his throws. Often times doesn’t make the right type of throw. 17/20.
Accuracy/Placement: Accuracy and placement is extremely spotty. While he can normally get the ball where it needs to go, he sometimes seriously struggles to place it correct velocity. Not reliable. Same mechanical issues Carson Wentz dealt with his rookie year. 12/18.
Field Vision: See’s the field pretty well for the most part. Struggled with pre-snap adjustments at times. Wasn’t asked to go through many reads. Shows flashes of incredible field vision at times. 13/18.
Release: Very quick release. Ball comes out low (looks much like Philip Rivers) but usually crafts it through the LOS. Doesn’t require himself to make a good plant normally, seems to throw better moving. 13/15.
Pocket Movement: At times, seems more than comfortable in the pocket. Incredibly consistent footwork. When flustered, he leaves the pocket and tries to stay in open space. 9/12.
Mobility: Has mobility to move around behind the line of scrimmage, but doesn’t have it to make much happen after it. Incredibly slow runner. 5/10.
Leadership/Attitude: Questionable leadership at his position is a concern, but his attitude on the field seems fine. Led team to incredible comebacks against Penn State, Maryland and Nebraska. Keeps gunning and seems to enjoy it. 8/10.
Overall: Dwayne Haskins can fix some of the mechanics to improve his accuracy, and learn to stay in the pocket better. Once he does that, he can be a very good football player. Until then, he can be a serviceable starter from year one. 77/100.
Seems like a very bright young man with a poor attitude. Complained about not being “seriously” considered for the Heisman even after finishing 3rd place in voting. Played the social media game with fans for a month before declaring. (+2).
Career: 22 Games, 590 Att, 373 Comp, 70 Comp%, 5396 Yds, 9.1 YPA, 54 TDs, 9 INTs, 174 Eff Rate.
