What would the New York Giants be getting if they were to select Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the 2019 NFL Draft? Patrick Mayhorn of SB Nation’s Buckeyes website Land Grant Holy Land joins the ‘Valentine’s Views’ podcast to tell us.

Here are a few of the things Mayhorn told Big Blue View:

  • Haskins is “the real deal. This guy’s an NFL talent ... I think Dwayne Haskins is going to be an extremely successful NFL quarterback.”
  • Mayhorn said Haskins is “a very, very interesting quarterback. He’s a very interesting player and from matching him all year I can certainly understand why people are so excited about him.”
  • Mayhorn on the idea of Haskins playing behind Eli Manning for a year: “I think if he does get to spend a year behind a guy like Eli Manning it would be helpful for his development. I think that is a situation he would probably thrive in ... I also think if Eli Manning is to retire and Dwayne is the starter from Day 1 I think he can handle that.”
  • Can Haskins handle the New York market? “He is the exact kind of personality that can survive and really make that attention work for him ... I think that his personality, his confidence, the way that he carries himself gels super-well with New York.”
