Ohio State wide receiver Terry McLaurin has taken the Senior Bowl by storm thus far. He thinks he has more in store at the NFL Scouting Combine.

This week, McLaurin has already drawn praise from Todd McShay and Kirk Herbstreit. While never a major star at Ohio State, McLaurin showed off his explosiveness this past season and is also a major special teams contributor.

According to's Chase Goodbread, McLaurin is confident he is going to destroy the 40-yard dash at the upcoming combine.

He's thinking sub-4.4 range.

Ohio State fans got to see some of McLaurin's speed on display this season. He hauled in 35 receptions for 701 yards (20 yards per catch) and 11 touchdowns.

He scored multiple touchdowns against Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship Game, as well as against Indiana and Oregon State.

The NFL Scouting Combine will be held from February 26-March 4 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Participants will be tested in the 40-yard dash, bench press, broad jump and more, as well as conduct interviews with teams and the media.
