Commanders WR Terry McLaurin ranked

Considering the fact Terry McLaurin has not had a consistent quarterback to call upon over a prolonged period since joining the Washington Commanders as a third-round selection in 2017, the numbers he's put together are remarkable. Something that could go up a notch next season under Eric Bieniemy's guidance.

This is dependent on whether Sam Howell can provide the Commanders with a stable presence at the quarterback position. If the former fifth-round pick meets this objective, then McLaurin stands to benefit more than most.

McLaurin got a big-time confidence boost from a recent preseason NFL wide receiver rankings from Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus. The Ohio State product placed No. 8 on the list ahead of some pretty esteemed performers - something that's richly deserved based on his full body of work.

"Since coming into the league, [Terry] McLaurin has racked up more than 4,200 yards and 460 targets in four seasons with an ugly list of quarterbacks throwing him the football. He has a PFF receiving grade of at least 77.1 in each season, and passes thrown his way have generated a 101.2 passer rating, significantly higher than the baseline of those aforementioned quarterbacks."

McLaurin has set the tone for others this offseason. He's buying into Bieniemy's plans fully and is willing to go above and beyond to ensure maximum benefits from having such a respected offensive mind around.

Hopefully, this can kickstart Washington's offense into life at long last.
