Former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray scheduled a visit with the Washington Redskins, and Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins will meet with the New York Giants this week.

Murray is projected to be a top-10 draft pick, with speculation the Arizona Cardinals want the Heisman Trophy winner with the No. 1 overall pick.

Haskins, one of the top quarterback prospects available in this month’s draft, has already worked out for the Oakland Raiders and visited with the Denver Broncos and Redskins.

The Giants have 12 draft picks — they hold the sixth and 17th picks in the first round — and hosted Murray April 11. The team had dinner with Haskins the night before his Buckeyes pro day in March.

With Eli Manning approaching 40 years old, the Giants are looking for a long-term answer at the position. They have already visited with Missouri’s Drew Lock, Duke’s Daniel Jones and West Virginia’s Will Grier.

Haskins, a one-year starter as a redshirt sophomore, grew up in Highland Park, N.J., rooting for the Giants as a kid.

“It would be a dream come true as far as being able to go back home where my family is and play for that franchise,” Haskins said at the NFL Scouting Combine of possibly being drafted by the Giants.

The Redskins are carrying veterans Colt McCoy and Case Keenum, acquired via trade from the Broncos in March, on the current roster. Alex Smith, who suffered a broken leg and experienced complications following surgery, is not expected to play in 2019.

Other reports of quarterback prospects making the rounds this week include Lock visiting Green Bay and Jones working out for Miami.

The Packers have Aaron Rodgers under contract through the 2023 season, but they also have 10 total selections in the draft — including the 12th and 30th picks in the first round.

The Dolphins have the 13th pick and plan to evaluate Jones this week at Duke, according to NFL Network.
