INDIANAPOLIS — Jadon Haselwood has been drawing interest from teams at the NFL combine. The 6-3, 213-pound wideout credits Arkansas with preparing him to excel at the next level.

The Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, and Pittsburgh Steelers have met with the former Razorback at the NFL combine.

Haselwood believes his lone season in Fayetteville prepared him for the next level.


“It made me a leader,” Haselwood said. “It made me get out of my comfort zone. I came from a winning program. I tried to bring that mentality to the guys. They helped me get to where I’m at today and I appreciate them for that.”

The Cedar Grove High School (Georgia) product has a career 121 receptions and 1,438 total rushing yards, 59 and 702 of those respectively in his one season with the Razorbacks. He joined Arkansas after three seasons with the Oklahoma Sooners.

He is looking forward to showcasing his speed in the forty. He told reporters to look for Dwight McGlothern and K.J. Jefferson from Arkansas to be  at the combine next year. 

Haselwood is ranked 242nd-best player on Pro Football Focus’ big board.
