Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins expects to start this coming season. A player many consider to be the steal of the 2019 NFL Draft, that could very well come to fruition.

If so, Haskins will have the “pleasure” of going up against Khali Mack and the Chicago Bears on Sept. 23. It’s not something he’s looking forward to.

“Khalil Mack is somebody I would not want to be touched by,” Haskins told TMZ Sports when posed with a question about who we wouldn’t want to be hit by.

The unfortunate thing here is that Mack will likely hit him a couple times during the game. How will Haskins stand up against one of the game’s most elite defenders? It will be an early-career test for the former Ohio State standout.

We will give the young quarterback credit for answering the questions. Most players at his position would blow it off. Let’s just hope Mack doesn’t get word of this interview. He might go all Alvin Mack on the rook.
