With six Super Bowl rings, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the gold standard for quarterbacks in the National Football League (NFL). It’s no wonder why many up and coming signal-callers are trying to pattern their game or at least achieve part of his success in his long NFL career. Dwayne Haskins, the 15th overall pick of the Washington Redskins in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, said he wants to pattern his game after the 41-year-old Brady.

"I want to be really, really good, and right now, I'm good sometimes. And that's frustrating, because I want to play like Tom Brady, I want to play like Drew Brees,” Haskins said after the Redskins’ minicamp, per John Kiem of ESPN. As of now, Haskins is still learning the NFL ropes and he still has a long way to go, entering his fourth week in camp with the Redskins.

Haskins being compared to Brady

Earlier, former NFL quarterback and current NFL analyst Trent Dilfer compared Haskins’ skills as that of Brady.

“He’s the most like Tom Brady of anyone we’ve had,” said Dilfer, adding that Haskins sees the field and plays like Brady. “I don’t want to compare anyone to Brady, but he’s Tom Brady-ish,” added Dilfer. After serving as the Buckeyes’ starter for one season, Haskins declared for the NFL Draft. He was impressive during his lone season as Buckeyes starter, throwing for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns with just eight interceptions.

While Redskins coach Jay Gruden floated the possibility that Haskins could be their Week 1 starter, the young quarterback will be up against veteran Case Keenum.

Jackson to train under Brady’s mentor

Lamar Jackson emerged as the Baltimore Ravens’ starting quarterback following an injury to veteran signal-caller Joe Flacco last season. Jackson, the Ravens’ No. 32 pick last season, went 6-1 as a starter and led Baltimore to a playoff spot.

However, Jackson struggled in his playoff debut against the Los Angeles Chargers, completing just 14 of 29 passes for 194 yards and two scores with an interception. The Chargers also neutralized Jackson’s running ability, limiting him to just 50 rushing yards. In the offseason, Jackson plans to improve his passing ability after a dismal 58.2 completion rating last season.

According to Jamison Hensley of ESPN, Jackson plans to train under noted quarterback mentor Tom House to work on his throwing mechanics.

House is known for working with veteran quarterbacks, like Brady and Brees. In January, Brady said he spent some time with House before the postseason began en route to their sixth Super Bowl win. "Tom (House) is always receptive and it is just great reviewing things and talking about techniques, fundamentals," said Brady, adding that fundamentals are important for football players, most especially quarterbacks.

Brady has enough time in his hands before training camp begins and it won't be a surprise if he pays House a visit anytime.
