  1. Ran a good 40, but he ain't that fast on the field. He does have excellent hands, good routes, no injuries, and yea he's a heck of a blocker which no one talks about. I like the comment by Burnell; i do see hines ward in him. 3rd round at the lastest; I wouldn't be surprised if he goes in 2nd.

  2. The hardest working man in college football. I love the Penn State game when KJ Hill caught the winning touchdown and who do you see knocking 3 Penn State players on their ass so KJ can score untouched its Terry Mclaurin who else!! He will be an outstanding pro. Good luck T M!!

  3. These kids won't publicly say it but Brian Hartline made all the difference because Zach Smith greatly delayed their development. Even Mike Thomas was highly limited at Ohio State and he is obviously pretty damn good. Coaching proper technique is absolutely everything. Hard work gets you the rest of the way. But you can work your ass off but if you are coach strong you're going nowhere. These guys would not have been drafted if Zach Smith was still coaching them and Hartline never joined the staff, I guarantee it.

  4. Maaan I’m excited for Terry joining the Redskins. HE is the types of players we need on the team!!! Big time leader with CHARACTER and not someone that just talks (ahem DJ). He puts the dang work in! He wants to get better and wants to bring his teammates along with him to get better. 👊🏽👊🏽
