ESPN's Todd McShay Raved About Ohio State WR Terry McLaurin

Todd McShay breaks down his first mock draft of 2019.


Practice for the Senior Bowl kicked off earlier this week from Mobile, Alabama as the best seniors from around the college football world gear up for the upcoming NFL draft. Among those working out for NFL scouts, was Ohio State wide receiver Terry McLaurin.

The senior wideout enjoyed a "breakout" season with Dwayne Haskins at the quarterback position this season as he racked up 701 yards on just 35 catches. He averaged 20 yards per catch and ended the season with 11 receiving touchdowns - both good for 15th in the nation.

Now he's lighting up the Senior Bowl. NFL scouts raved about McLaurin's speed as he was the fastest player record during practice on Tuesday at over 22 miles per hour.

That includes ESPN's Todd McShay who said McLaurin "should have a long NFL career."

McLaurin finished third in receiving yards on the team and fourth in receptions and likely won't be the first Ohio State wide receiver off the board. That honor will likely go to Parris Campbell who projects as a potential first-round pick.

Even Missouri quarterback Drew Lock was raving about McLaurin. "I know why Haskins likes throwing to that guy," Lock said after hitting McLaurin for a touchdown.

The 2019 NFL draft kicks off on April 25.
