Making a good first impression is a pretty important aspect of life. Former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins appears to be doing exactly that in Washington.

Being the No. 14 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and the first B1G quarterback selected in the first round in over two decades, Haskins brought high expectations with him to the Redskins organization. He isn’t disappointing.

ESPN’s John Keim had strong words for the former B1G Offensive Player of the Year after a strong early showing in camp.

“Quarterback Dwayne Haskins had a strong showing and clearly enjoyed himself after some of his touchdown throws,” Keim wrote. “He handled alert calls, was decisive on throws and accurate. On one red zone play, he paused in the pocket and pointed out a likely blitz. On the snap the blitz came but Haskins delivered a strike on a quick out to the other side for a score to receiver Brian Quick. Haskins celebrated by jumping into Quick.”

Even Case Keenum is impressed with Haskins’ skill set.

“He’s making leaps and bounds,” Keenum said. “He’s a really good football player and he’s going to be a great quarterback for a long time. He makes some big-time throws with guys in his face.”

Haskins threw for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns in his only season as the starter at Ohio State. He was a first-team All-B1G selection and finished third in the Heisman voting.
