The Giants will be well-represented at Ohio State’ pro day on Wednesday.
According to NJ.com, both Pat Shurmur and offensive coordinator Mike Shula are expected to be in attendance, presumably to focus on former Buckeyes quarterback Dwayne Hakins. The Buckeyes will also have other top-tier talent performing, such as pass-rusher Nick Bosa and defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones.
According to SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, the coaching duo were present at the Pro Days for every top quarterback in last year’s NFL Draft and are expected to do the same this time around. Last month, they were at Oklahoma for QB Kyler Murray‘s pro day and should also be present at Drew Lock‘s showcase at Missouri on Friday.
Haskins will hope for better results than what he posted at the NFL Combine earlier this month, when he ran 5.04 and 5.06 seconds in two 40-yard dash attempts.
The 21-year-old is a New Jersey native who put up big numbers during his redshirt sophomore season at Ohio State — his first as a starter. In 2018, he completed 373 passes (70 percent completion percentage) for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns with eight interceptions.
At the Combine, he said “it’d be a dream come true” to be drafted by the Giants. There are no guarantees the Giants will select a quarterback with the sixth overall pick, but general manager Dave Gettleman will have to find Eli Manning‘s eventual replacement under center sooner rather than later.
Whether the Giants have zeroed in on Haskins to be Manning’s successor remains to be seen.
