When you look at an NFL style quarterback, the two things that jump out are decision making and accuracy. I don’t know if I’ve seen a quarterback when everything is clean that’s more accurate than Dwayne Haskins. Whoever picks up No. 7 from Columbus has a big-time threat on their hands.”Haskins is considered a first-round NFL Draft prospect by most experts, though some believe his stock could be dropping.One NFL star has called for his team to draft him, though.Von Miller got to spend some time with Dwayne Haskins during the QBs visit to the Broncos facility recently. Von really liked him a lot.
