Former Ohio State wide receiver Terry McLaurin was selected by the Washington Redskins in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

McLaurin, who joins former quarterback Dwayne Haskins in Washington, was taken with the 76th pick overall.

McLaurin is now the seventh Buckeye receiver drafted in the last five years.

McLaurin caught 35 passes for 701 yards and 11 touchdowns last season as a fifth-year senior. The 20.0 yards per catch were the best mark in the Big Ten.

In his five seasons, McLaurin caught 75 passes for 1,251 yards and 19 touchdowns.

McLaurin was also a very valuable member of Ohio State’s special teams as a gunner, and he was arguably the best run-blocking wide receiver in the entire draft.

McLaurin caught a total of five passes in the past two Big Ten Championship Games, accumulating 170 yards and three touchdowns in the process.
