Redskins Sign Dwayne Haskins, 6 Others

Washington’s quarterback of the future signed his rookie deal on Thursday. Dwayne Haskins inked his four-year contract, with the 2023 option, the Redskins announced.

Chosen No. 15 overall, the Ohio State product signed his slot deal — worth $14.416MM with an $8.504MM signing bonus.

Six other Redskins draftees joined Haskins in signing shortly before the team begins its rookie minicamp. Running back Bryce Love, guard Wes Martin, center Ross Pierschbacher, linebacker Cole Holcomb, wide receiver Kelvin Harmon and cornerback Jimmy Moreland signed their four-year rookie pacts.

The second Redskins first-round quarterback pick this decade and fourth this century — following Patrick Ramsey, Jason Campbell, and Robert Griffin III — Haskins comes to Washington on the heels of throwing 50 touchdown passes as a sophomore. He joins a new-look Redskins quarterback room, featuring Case Keenum, and will likely see extensive action as a rookie.

The only members of Washington’s draft class yet to sign are Montez Sweat and Haskins’ college teammate Terry McLaurin.

NC State WR Kelvin Harmon To Enter 2019 Draft

North Carolina State wide receiver Kelvin Harmon announced on Twitter that he’ll forgo his final season of collegiate eligibility in order to enter the 2019 NFL draft.

“I have prayed and discussed the path forward with my family and we have decided that it is time for me to proceed to the next chapter in my football life,” writes Harmon. “That chapter will be playing professional football in the National Football League. To this end, I am relinquishing my college eligibility, effective immediately, and declaring myself a professional. I am applying for entry into the 2019 NFL draft. I will not be playing in the upcoming Gator Bowl but my support for my teammates will go unchanged.”

Harmon’s role in the Wolfpack offense steadily grew over the past three seasons. After managing only 27 receptions during his freshman year, Harmon totaled 69 catches for 1,017 yards and four touchdowns, earning second-team All-ACC honors along the way. This season, Harmon posted his best results yet (81/1,186/7) and was named first-team All-ACC.

Harmon certainly has the size of a No. 1 wideout, as he stands 6’3″, 214 pounds. In his most recent 2019 big board, Chris Trapasso of ranked Harmon as the 11th-best prospect in the draft, so the NC State product should stand a good chance of being a first-round selection. In a scouting report of Harmon, Trapasso noted the Liberia native’s ability to win contested catches and his “impressive speed and wiggle” after the catch.
