“I see myself as a deep ball receiver with the ability to take the top off any defense,” he said after becoming a Redskin. “I grew up liking DeSean Jackson’s game.”
When you think of a receiver you immediately hone in on his route running, pass catching, speed among other skills. Those are all great, but some of the best receivers make an impact on plays that they aren’t primarily involved in with blocks. It seems like McLaurin is ready to do that, and takes pride in it.
76. Terry McLaurin, WR, Washington Redskins
He’s got some outstanding speed and has outstanding character. He’s also the best kick-coverage guy in the draft.
-Strong safety group remaining as Gardner-Johnson and Thompson were both generally considered top 50 prospects. They both have a few minor flaws, but both look capable of being good starting safeties at the next level. Gardner-Johnson especially is a surprise given his athletic profile and versatility. Behind them, Amani Hooker and Jaquan Johnson are a solid next tier of safeties. Both have starting upside as well and can contribute as rookies as a 3rd safety.
