Now that the dust has settled from the NFL Scouting Combine and we are less than 36 hours away from the 2019 NFL Draft, we're starting to see massive changes in the odds for where top prospects may end up Thursday night.

While Kyler Murray has dominated the pre-draft news cycle, Dwayne Haskins has steadily remained a top quarterback prospect behind the 2018 Heisman Trophy winner. And according to Fanduel Sportsbook, the Washington Redskins (+280) have now surpassed the New York Giants (+350) for the best odds to call Haskins' name in this year's draft.

Both Washington and New York are likely looking to add some youth at the quarterback position in this year's draft. The Redskins' Alex Smith and Giants' Eli Manning are surrounded by a multitude of concerns for their respective futures, and they are both eating a large chunk of each of team's respective salary cap.

After the Redskins and Giants, the Cincinnati Bengals and Oakland Raiders have the third and fourth-best odds to draft Haskins at +400 and +600, respectively. Beyond these two franchises, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins are tied for fifth at +700.

Haskins had an elite 2018-19 season with the Ohio State Buckeyes, leading the country in both passing yards (4,831) and touchdowns (50), but his single-season sample size as a starter at the college level is, perhaps, one downside.

He should be able to contribute wherever he lands, but as of this Wednesday afternoon, the Redskins are now leading the pack.
