If Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell was one of the players who most helped himself during the NFL Combine, there is likely no player who improved his draft stock more during the Senior Bowl than Buckeye WR Terry McLaurin.

Due, in part, to his impressive performance in Mobile, Ala., McLaurin was selected with the 76th pick in the third round of the NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins.

During his four years in Columbus, McLaurin proved that he was one of the most selfless players in recent Buckeye memory. While he turned in an impressive 701 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in 2018 — often in the most important moments — he was also a special teams fixture during his time in Columbus.

A two-time captain for OSU, McLaurin is noted for his spectacular technique and route-running ability. One of the things that made him stand out at the Senior Bowl was his ability to win on-on-one matchups against some of the best veteran defensive backs in the country.

Land-Grant Holy Land will have much more on the McLaurin selection later tonight, and throughout the draft weekend.
