With Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins recently posting a picture of himself in a New York Giants uniform on social media. It’s not hard to see that Haskins is letting Dave Gettleman know exactly where he’d like to play in 2019. Apparently Haskins grew up a Giants fan and actually lived in New Jersey at one point. Now that he’s declared for the draft it’s a real possibility New York could select Haskins with the 6th overall pick. Based on everything he’s been able to do for the Buckeyes (4,831 yards, 50 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions) this would be the best thing that could happen for Pat Shurmur and that organization. Haskins can go to the Big Apple and be a star in perhaps the greatest city in the world. What stage is bigger than that? Gettleman already took the first step by adding a once in a generation talent in Saquon Barkley. With the addition of another once in a generation talent like Haskins then New York will be back and perhaps better than ever. Clearly that’s too good of an opportunity to pass up and Gettleman is smart enough to get it. There’s no way the front office should mess this up and you better believe the whole identity of the team is about to change. It’s going to take a lot of pressure off Odell Beckham Jr. too because now there’s a couple of young guns who are leading the charge (Barkley and Haskins). Having the ability to score at any moment means defensive coordinators will be over-matched on just about every snap. The potential of this whole situation makes Big Blue fun again and it’s been a long time since that’s been the case considering this franchise has one winning season in the last six years. Dwayne Haskins is the key when it comes to changing New York’s luck and with this kind of arm talent on the roster you can almost guarantee a drastic increase in scoring.

The New York Giants would be so lucky if they land Dwayne Haskins in the draft. The Ohio State quarterback has serious arm talent.
