Urban Meyer: "Dwayne Haskins is the best quarterback who ever played at Ohio State."
FOX College Football analyst and former Ohio State head coach, Urban Meyer, was a guest of Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks podcast recently and was asked to compare Redskins starting QB Dwayne Haskins and current LSU stud, Joe Burrow.
Meyer, predictably, lavished praise on his former quarterback but also had an interesting critique.
"In his junior year, he was the best prepared quarterback I've ever seen, in recruiting," Meyer said. Meyer was talking about Haskins time at Bullis High School in Potomac, MD.
The former Buckeyes head coach added this, which offers hope and perhaps pause for concern.
"Dwayne's leadership skills were OK, not very good.... He became a great leader," Meyer told Jeremiah and Brooks.. He also added among other observations, "that's why I think he's going to be a fine NFL quarterback."
Meyer was very complimentary of Burrow too, who he briefly coached at Ohio State before the likely No. 1 pick overall transferred to LSU.
Haskins makes his home debut this Sunday against the New York Jets.
