- The Washington Times - Thursday, June 6, 2019

Wide receiver Terry McLaurin signed his rookie contract with the Washington Redskins Thursday, meaning all 10 rookies in the team’s draft class have signed.

McLaurin was the Redskins‘ third-round pick out of Ohio State. He played with quarterback Dwayne Haskins, Washington’s first-rounder and presumed signal-caller of the future, and Haskins said he lobbied his new team to draft McLaurin.

McLaurin played four seasons for the Buckeyes and was a two-time team captain. He caught 35 passes for 701 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior in Columbus.

Coach Jay Gruden has praised McLaurin’s speed and “the amount of plays he’s made” in offseason practices so far.

The Redskins inked Haskins, fellow first-rounder Montez Sweat and the rest of the class last month.
