Before the proceedings got started at the 2022 NFL Draft in Las Vegas on Thursday night, the NFL held a moment of silence for late Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, hosting the event outside Ceasar’s Forum on the Las Vegas Strip, said that Haskins was a “good man.”
Haskins was killed on April 9 while he was attempting to cross a South Florida Interstate. The 24-year-old was a first-round pick of the Washington Redskins in 2019, spending two seasons in Washington and the 2021 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Steelers and his widow Kalabrya Haskins held a memorial service in Pittsburgh last week to honor Haskins, with Steelers president Art Rooney II, general manager Kevin Colbert, head coach Mike Tomlin, and most of Haskins’ Steelers teammates in attendance.
