2022 DFF Draft Coverage: Hassan Haskins

Hassan Haskins | Michigan 6’2” 228 lbs. | 11/26/1999 (Age 22)

Hassan Haskins was drafted 131st overall by the Tennessee Titans, becoming the 11th running back and 131st overall player in the 2022 NFL Draft.

COLLEGE PRODUCTION

 Year  Games Played   Attempts   Yards   Yards/Attempt   TDs 
 2019 (SO)    12  121  622  5.1  6
 2020 (JR)  6  61  375  6.1  0
 2021 (SR)  14  270  1,327  4.9  20

Haskins did play in 2018 but redshirted after only playing in three games as a special teams player. He received the team’s Most Improved Player Award after producing 622 rushing yards and six touchdowns during the 2019 season. In a limited role in 2020, he managed to lead the team in rushing (375) with only two starts in six games. He finally served as the team’s workhorse in 2021, and it proved him and his team well. On 270 carries, Haskins turned in 1,327 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns. He also hauled in 18 receptions for 131 yards as well. His 20 rushing scores were the fourth-most in all of FBS in 2021 and tied for the third-most in a Michigan Wolverine season. 

STRENGTHS

His top strength is his strength. Has a nasty stiff arm and is able to bulldoze through defenders. Great forward lean through contact. Patient runner who shows good vision, as he often finds the smallest seams to breakthrough. A little more involved as a pass-catcher during the 2021 season and shows potential in that role. 

WEAKNESSES 

Doesn’t show a great burst through the line of scrimmage. Makes telegraphed cuts that are easy for defenders to read. Lacks elusiveness in the open field. Doesn’t run with creativity and needs to play faster at the pro level. 

ATHLETIC TESTING

At the NFL combine, Haskins measured in at 6’2” and 228 lbs. Which equates to a BMI of 29.3. The last time he ran a 40-yard dash was in high school, and that was 4.74 seconds. Haskins lacks great speed for his position, but he makes up for it with his elite strength. He decided to only participate in the bench press at the combine, turning in the most reps out of any running back there with 27. 

DRAFT ANALYSIS 

Rapid Reaction to Draft Capital: Excellent

Rapid Reaction to Landing Spot: Great

Haskins was selected with the 131st-overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. 

Derrick Henry is 28 years old, and he’s coming off his first injury-riddled season. Haskins comes inbuilt very similarly and could learn from one of the best pure rushers we’ve seen in this league in a long time.

FANTASY INSIGHTS

Haskins has a similar frame as Henry does, and he’s the top candidate to become the RB2 for this Titans team. With Henry healthy and on the field, Haskins shouldn’t see much production, but his future is very bright. He’s worth a late-round pick in your rookie drafts, and you may want to take a chance on him in the middle rounds of dynasty start-ups if you want to snag him over the competition. It may serve you well down the road.
