Washington’s selection of Ohio State receiver Terry McLaurin in the third round of the NFL Draft reunites quarterback Dwayne Haskins, the Redskins first-round pick, with one of his top college receivers. McLaurin is 6 feet, 208 pounds and caught the eye at the combine when he ran a 4.35 second 40-yard dash. The speed is the stand out trait for McLaurin and it’s clearly a significant part of his game. He’s someone with the ability to run by coverage and take the top off the defense.

Here against Maryland, McLaurin is isolated to the right of the formation, but aligns inside the numbers. This gives McLaurin maximum space to work with. He takes an outside release and runs by the corner, who gets caught peeking into the backfield. McLaurin runs away from the defense, but has to slow down and work back to the ball as it’s underthrown. He does a great job adjusting to the ball to secure the catch before then accelerating to run away from the defense once…
