Dwayne Haskins sits in an interesting position as the consensus second-best quarterback in the NFL Draft class, and speculation has him going anywhere from the top 10 into the 20s.

One team that has his attention, however, picks in the middle of all that: the Washington Redskins, who hold the 15th overall selection.

Haskins visited Washington, and seems very interested in what it has to offer.

“There’s definitely something there,” Haskins said Monday on NFL Network, via Grant Gordon of “I feel like there’s a great relationship with the Redskins. My mentor Shawn Springs played for the Redskins. Great relationship with [owner] Mr. [Daniel] Snyder and the rest of the Redskins ownership. Whatever team picks me, I’ll be excited to be a part of, but there’s definitely something there in D.C.”

The question becomes whether Haskins will make it to 15, and if Washington’s interest will be mutual if he gets there. Washington has left the door open on picking a quarterback in the first round, but has made clear that if it does, it's going to be thrown right into the line of fire. It’s up to Washington whether Haskins would be ready for that responsibility.
