The second Ohio State wide receiver came off the board at the 2019 NFL Draft as Terry McLaurin was taken with the No. 76 overall pick to the Washington Redskins in the thirdround Friday.

McLaurin pulled in a Big Ten second-most 11 touchdowns in 2018, along with 701 yards on just 35 receptions for team-high 20 yards-per-catch average.

His 11 touchdowns this past season bring McLaurin to a career total of 19, which both rank No. 6 in program history for season and career receiving scores.

McLaurin would go onto play in four victories over Michigan, three bowl game wins and assist in back-to-back Big Ten Championships in the past two seasons.

The five-year receiver was a primary contributor to a Ohio State receiving core that assisted former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins in setting new records for Big Ten passing yardage and touchdowns in a single-season, along with school records for yards and touchdowns through the air in a single game.

From 2015 to 2018, McLaurin did not miss any of Ohio State’s 54 games, which displays a durability that should help him at the next level, along with the 4.35-second 40-yard dash time he posted at the NFL Combine.
