Seventy-five players were selected ahead of Terry McLaurin in the 2019 NFL Draft, including 11 wide receivers. On Sunday, he showed again he was a steal.
The second-year man out of Ohio State went for 125 yards on seven receptions with a touchdown in a losing effort against the Arizona Cardinals. Washington fell 30-15 and 1-1 on the season.
McLaurin got his fourth career 100 yard receiving day and got his eighth career touchdown in the 4th quarter.
The slant to McLaurin is a play Washington offensive coordinator Scott Turner likes wit good reason.
McLaurin accounted for 56 percent of Dwayne Haskins 223 passing yards and was targeted 10 times out of 33 attempts.
And if that slant looked familiar, here’s another look at touchdown.
McLaurin has appeared to be the one true offensive game-breaker for Washington on offense during his time in the NFL.
However he was all alone. Haskins and the offense were held scoreless in the first half and failed to get into the game until they were behind three touchdowns. Washington scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but were never closer than 27-15.
