QB Haskins after drop: 'League done messed up'

With their quarterback situation in flux, the Washington Redskins drafted Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick in Thursday's NFL draft.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

According to our valuations of draft slots -- based on AV over replacement -- the Colts received about 57% more value from the Redskins relative to the No. 26 pick Indianapolis surrendered. That doesn't consider that much of that value is in next year's draft. Still, it's a steep interest rate for Washington to pay for a better asset this year.

The Redskins needed an edge rusher -- the position was in play at 15, especially if Dwayne Haskins had not been there. It cost them two second-round picks, but they landed possibly top-10 value. Sweat was a terrific all-around player for Mississippi State. He has good length and a strong bullrush. He plays with violence and has good feet. The main question is if he was indeed misdiagnosed with a heart condition. Clearly the Redskins felt good about making a big move to land him at 26.

Dwayne Haskins gives the Redskins what they need: a young quarterback they can develop into a long-range solution. Haskins has arm talent and played well when it mattered -- against ranked teams and in the fourth quarter. He's smart and a hard worker. But he does have to improve his footwork -- getting his feet matched up to where he's throwing -- and will have to develop his anticipation skills. It's why some teams felt he might take time to mature. But with Case Keenum and Colt McCoy, the Redskins don't need him to contribute immediately. The risk then becomes passing on players who could help now and in the future. But if Haskins pans out, they will have solved the most important position.

Mel Kiper Jr. Football analyst 

The highest-ranked prospect still available on my board is Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, a 6-foot-3 pocket passer who is the most accurate QB in this draft. He's my No. 7 prospect. Could he fall into Washington's lap at No. 15?

The Redskins are not only in disagreement about whether to go quarterback with their top pick but which quarterback to select. While we know by now that Bruce Allen and Dan Snyder are fixated on Dwayne Haskins, there is a case being pled for Duke QB Daniel Jones per sources - Dianna Russini

The Redskins are in the market for a quarterback and sources tell ESPN's Dianna Russini the team is targeting Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins. Sources also tell Russini that the Redskins do not have any plans to trade with the Cardinals, who hold the first pick and already have QB Josh Rosen on their roster.
