Redskins: Reasonable expectations for Dwayne Haskins in 2020

It’s hard to accurately predict what kind of season we’ll see out of second year quarterback Dwayne Haskins in 2020.

He started seven games for the Washington Redskins as a rookie, putting up below average numbers. Haskins finished the year with seven touchdowns to seven interceptions, while completing 58.6% of his passes and throwing for 1,365 yards.

We’ve seen a handful of quarterbacks in recent history take a big leap in development from year one to year two. Carson Wentz, Jared Goff and Lamar Jackson are probably the most notable quarterbacks to take that leap.

Haskins clearly has all the physically tools to succeed in the NFL. He has a canon for an arm, giving him the ability to make any throw that’s required of him. He also has a very promising receiver who he can continue to grow with in Terry McLaurin.

But, it’s fair to say McLaurin is one of the lone bright spots on this Redskins offense heading into 2020. Haskins will have to do a lot of the heavy lifting if this team is going to do anything significant this year.
