Redskins select Ohio State wide receiver Terry McLaurin with the 76th pick

With the 76th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft the Washington Redskins gave Dwayne Haskins a familiar target to throw the ball to. Terry McLaurin caught 35 passes from Haskins last year for 701 yards. Judging by Haskins’ Twitter account, he is a fan of the move.

McLaurin was the 2014 Mr. Football Indiana. The hard-working Buckeye actually graduated from Ohio State in three and a half years with a degree in communications. McLaurin is considered a standout on special teams.

Scouting reports indicate that McLaurin has good speed and size on the outside, standing six feet tall and weighing 208 pounds while running a 4.35 forty yard dash. McLaurin runs crisp and polished routes and thrived in one-on-one match-ups at the Senior Bowl.

Among the knocks on McLaurin is his reluctance to block and the lack of yards after catch if not hit in stride. Most scouts consider McLaurin an good backup receiving prospect in the NFL. The Redskins see a guy that checks a lot of boxes and increases the culture in the locker room. He will contribute on special teams from day one.
