When Terry McLaurin came into the league in 2019, there were few expectations placed upon him.
Despite coming from highly-respected Ohio State, he did not generate much buzz coming out of the draft with other receivers catching the limelight like A.J. Brown of the Tennessee Titans and D.K. Metcalf of the Seattle Seahawks.
But coming into his third season, McLaurin joins Brown and Metcalf as the only receivers with over 2,000 yards from their draft class.
Since drafting McLaurin, the Washington Football Team has drafted four receivers: Kelvin Harmon in 2019's sixth round, Antonio Gandy-Golden in 2020's fourth round, Dyami Brown in 2021's third round and Dax Milne in 2021's seventh round.
With all of those guys sitting behind McLaurin on the depth chart, suddenly he finds himself a veteran in a mentorship role.
