Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins will also visit the Redskins later this week. The Redskins hold the No. 15 overall pick and have significant need at quarterback.
Haskins, 21, is one of the top quarterback prospects in this year’s draft class and could end up being a top-6 pick when all is said and done.
While Washington could be considering a trade up for Haskins, there has been talk in recent days that Haskins could be in line for a bit of a fall in round one, but it’s hard to know what to believe at this time of year.
During his college career, Haskins threw for 5,145 yards while completing 70.2 percent of his passes to go along with 51 touchdowns and nine interceptions over the course of two seasons and 21 games. He also rushed for 208 yards and four touchdowns.
Jones, 21, is seen as a likely a first-round pick in this year’s draft after being coached up under Duke HC David Cutcliffe, who also worked with both Manning brothers.
During his college career at Duke, Jones threw for, 8,201 yards while completing 59.9 percent of his passes to go along with 52 touchdowns and 29 interceptions over the course of 36 games and three seasons.
