Says The Athletic’s Ben Standig:
1. Terry McLaurin: As I sit in front of my keyboard seeking the proper words and context to justify ranking the second-year receiver best on Washington’s roster, I’m reminded of a conversation with a football lifer who struggled to articulate McLaurin’s gifts.
“Man, I don’t know where to start,” former Washington receivers coach Ike Hillard said last year. “There are so many good things I could say.”
The blinding speed stands out even for a layman.
Asked at one point when he knew no defender would corral him en route to a 75-yard touchdown against the Eagles, McLaurin said with a knowing chuckle, “When I catch it.” It’s not bragging when true and McLaurin blew past shocked defenders repeatedly as a rookie.
