The Giants should do all the due dilligence necessary as they mull whether it's worth selecting Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins with the No. 6 pick in the draft -- or whether they should move up to take him as the eventual successor to Eli Manning.
But before they can get face-to-face time with him, the Giants can get a feel for Haskins' intellect in a video of him breaking down film for the Big Ten Network.
The December video shows Haskins breaking down film of the Buckeyes' win over rival Michigan before they played Northwestern in the Big Ten championship game.
While discussing a completion to receiver Parris Campbell, Haskins explains why he moved to his left after setting his feet shortly after the snap, noting Michigan's use of stunts and twists left a gap to his left as he felt pressure.
"I don't see it, I just feel it. I can feel a heavy pass rush to my right side and I feel not as much pressure to the left. So I find the dead spot in the pocket to get a good angle to find Parris so he can see me," Haskins says. "So I'm moving to my left and I wait until Parris shows me his eyes, 'cause I don't want to throw him by surprise with a fast pass. So I'm waiting until he gives me his eyes, buy him some time on the route and then it's right there when he turns around."
Haskins, who has shown his love for the Giants, confirms that his move left was not only to avoid the rush but to give Campbell time.
"So a lot of stopping routes, coming back to the quarterback, when the receiver isn't looking at you it's hard for them to get their hands up and their eyes up to look at the quarterback at the same time," he says. "So he's running his route - he's worried about the defender, not me. He's trying to beat the pass rush because he has a time clock in his head. So he's worried about the pass rush, he's getting there, and I make it easy to catch it for him, wait until he gives me his eyes and his body language shows he's ready for the ball. That's when I throw it to him."
