SEE IT: Draft target QB Dwayne Haskins likes how he looks in Giants blue

After declaring for the NFL Draft, Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins played around with what jerseys he would look best in next season.

The Giants are one of them.

Haskins posted a bunch of jersey swaps on his Instagram story Tuesday night, and tagged Odell Beckham Jr., Saquon Barkley and Landon Collins on it as he wore Big Blue threads.

Haskins also wrote “Home home..,” which refers to his childhood in New Jersey. The 21-year-old grew up in Highland Park as a Giants fan nonetheless. 

Other than the Giants, Haskins posted pictures with team jerseys like the Jaguars, Bucs, and Dolphins — all teams that may need a quarterback change in 2019.

But this isn’t the first time Haskins has shown love to the Giants. In an interview with Chicago Tribune’s Teddy Greenstein, Haskins was told of the Giants’ need for a successor for veteran QB Eli Manning. He could fit right into that role next season, and he is fond of it. 

“I’m hoping for that too,” he replied. 

He also told The Post’s Zach Braziller that he used to always play as the Giants in EA Sports’ ‘Madden.’

“I played ‘Madden’ a lot, and he was really good running the football,” Haskins said. “The whole offense was nice. Plaxico [Burress], Jeremy Shockey, Eli [Manning], Ahmad Bradshaw. I was basically the stats guy from my family. I would know everybody’s height and weight, what college they went to.”

The Giants have the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, and Haskins is expected to be there for them when they’re on the clock. Haskins clearly likes the idea of returning home, but it will come down to if the Giants want to see him in Big Blue next season.
