Washington Redskins Training Camp Profile: WR Terry McLaurin
By Ian Cummings
Terry McLaurin’s 2018 season
McLaurin was a senior with the Ohio State Buckeyes last season, serving as part of an explosive receiving core that included himself, Parris Campbell, K.J. Hill, Johnnie Dixon, and Chris Olave.
In his senior season, McLaurin notched career highs in all receiving categories. He only caught 35 balls over 12 games, but considering the congested nature of the Buckeyes offense, in terms of talent, it’s not a major concern.
Besides, with those catches, McLaurin logged 701 receiving yards and a whopping 11 touchdowns, averaging 20 yards per catch. He scored a touchdown on 31.4 percent of his receptions, and he carved out a niche as a very solid deep threat with some run-after-catch ability in the flats as well.
On top of his statistical exploits, McLaurin was also a two-time captain, including in his senior season, and he was a very effective gunner on special teams for the Buckeyes, showing his willingness and ability to perform a multitude of roles. His resume would only get him so far, but getting drafted on Day 2 is nothing to scoff at.
