Haskins’ passing was one that rocked Ohio State and the Steelers alike. Some felt that Haskins was beginning to mature and round out into his own as a player.

Prior to the start of the first round on Thursday night, the NFL honored Haskins with a moment of silence in Las Vegas. It was a touching tribute for a player whose life was tragically cut short.

Prior to getting selected with the 15th overall pick in the 2019 draft, Haskins starred for the Buckeyes with a huge season in 2018. He led Ohio State to a B1G Championship and Rose Bowl win while tossing a single-season program record 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns.
