Washington Senior Vice President of Player Development Doug Williams knows something about the quarterback position, as a Super Bowl MVP winner, and says his team has something special about second-year quarterback Dwayne Haskins.
Williams said in 106.7 The Fan that Haskins has a better arm than any other quarterback in either this year’s draft or last year’s draft.
“I don’t care who came out this year, last year, there is not a quarterback that has come out in the last two years that has the ability, from the point of view of arm strength and arm talent, that Dwayne Haskins has, “Williams said. via NBCSportsWashington.com.
That would mean Haskins has a better arm not only for 2019 draft picks Kyler Murray, Daniel Jones, and Drew Lock, but also has a better arm than 2020 picks Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Herbert, and Jordan Love.
But Williams recognized that there is much more to being a great quarterback than having a great arm.
“Dwayne can pitch with the best,” said Williams. “Now mentally, he has to control the other side, and I think he has aligned himself and realized that that is what he has to do and I think that is what he is doing.” I think at the end of the day, give him an opportunity to do what everyone is doing, and that is to improve his game. “
Whether Haskins can improve is the biggest question in Washington this season.
