Former Ohio State wide receiver Terry McLaurin took advantage of every opportunity he was given during Senior Bowl week and helped his potential NFL future in the process.
The four-year senior was the lone Buckeye in Mobile, Alabama and made the most of it during the week’s practices and also shined during the game with four catches for 73 yards to help the North beat the South 34-18 in the annual college all-star game.
Projected as a mid-round pick coming into the week, he definitely helped his stock and likely helped as he showcased his talent in front of NFL scouts and the Oakland Raiders coaching staff who coached the North.
Raiders head coach Jon Gruden and his staff were handing out stickers of the Raiders logo to players who were making big plays much like Ohio State does with the buckeye leaf stickers. McLaurin earned three stickers during Saturday’s game.
He showed off his hands, route running and especially his speed and will likely get another chance to showcase his abilities in early March at the NFL Scouting Combine along with his Buckeye teammate Parris Campbell.
In his four years with the Buckeyes, McLaurin was in a wide receiver room that had a lot of talent including New Orleans Saints receiver Michael Thomas, Carolina Panthers receiver Curtis Samuel, Campbell, K.J. Hill among others.
2018 was the best season of McLaurin’s tenure at Ohio State with 35 catches for 701 yards and 11 touchdowns.
