Report: Dwayne Haskins expected to return to Ohio State in 2019

Report: Dwayne Haskins expected to return to Ohio State in 2019 If Dwayne Haskins decides not to declare for the NFL draft, the 2019 class of quarterbacks would be without its two most promising players. According to Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller, that’s a real possibility. In his latest ranking update, Miller noted he didn’t include Haskins in the top 10 of quarterbacks because school sources believe he’ll stay at Ohio State for 2019. Previously, multiple reports stated Oregon star Justin Herbert is expected to remain at the Pac-12 program next season. And that certainly would complicate the draft for QB-needy teams. Behind that duo, there’s a considerable gap.

ABC will broadcast all three days of the 2019 NFL draft, marking the first time in ABC's history that it will broadcast all three days of the event.

ABC will provide two nights of unique primetime coverage before simulcasting ESPN's presentation on Day 3.

ABC's telecast will be separate from the broadcasts of ESPN and NFL Network during each of the first two nights of coverage. ABC's broadcast will have "an added focus on the personalities and backstories of the draft picks and the overall spectacle of the draft, including live musical acts," according to a press release.

“ESPN is constantly seeking opportunities to innovate and expand our coverage of major events and the NFL Draft is a perfect example of that. There is no better way to celebrate 40 years of working with the NFL to grow the Draft than to bring the considerable assets of The Walt Disney Company to Nashville,” ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro said in a statememt. “With ESPN networks and platforms, and the addition of ABC as the exclusive broadcast home to the Draft, we will bring more resources than ever before as we introduce fans to the next generation of NFL players.”

ABC's draft coverage will be anchored by ESPN's College GameDay crew—Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and Lee Corso—along with other ESPN and ABC personalities, in addition to special outside guests. ESPN and NFL Network will continue their analysis-driven coverage as well.

Fox, MLB sign broadcast rights extension through 2028 Fox, which has had baseball since 1996, will reportedly play MLB 30-40% more than the previous contract. While ratings are not what they used to be, it would seem that the eyeballs Fox is getting are more valuable to it. UPDATE: That bump is actually even bigger: Industry sources say MLB’s new rights deal w Fox Sports is a 7-yr deal covering the 2022-28 seasons and is worth about $5.1B, about a 50 percent bump from the current term. — Eric Fisher (@EricFisherSBJ) November 15, 2018 For the time being, things will look very much like they do now. Starting in 2022, there will be more games broadcast.

The 2019 NFL Draft, which takes place in Nashville from April 25-27, will be streamed live on the ESPN app and NFL app, with coverage of all three days taking place on ESPN Radio, and in Spanish on ESPN Deportes and ESPN Deportes Radio.

Dwayne Haskins will play Rose Bowl regardless of NFL draft decision.
Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins could be a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft, but he says that’s not a factor in his decision about whether to play in the Rose Bowl. Haskins says he’ll play in the Rose Bowl regardless as he continues to weigh whether to turn pro or return to Ohio State. “Just being a quarterback, it’s your job to lead the team,” Haskins said, via Ari Wasserman of The Athletic. “And for you to say you don’t want to play, you’re not about the team or winning or losing. You just want to get out while you can.
