Terry McLaurin quickly became one of my favorite Ohio State players this past season. He can do everything you would want out of a wide receiver. Not only does he have great speed and the ability to make plays downfield, but he also is a tremendous perimeter blocker and special teams player.  It is surprising that many mock drafts have him falling into the mid-late rounds of the draft considering how much he is able to do at such a high-level. After putting up over 700 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns in a crowded receiver room at Ohio State, as well as a a fantastic performance at the Senior Bowl, I don’t see him falling that far in the draft. With all of this being said, I think he would be a great addition to a Bengals team in desperate need of another solid receiver. He may not be a huge playmaker in year one, but there’s plenty of room for development and he can be used in multiple roles. Plus, the Bengals would be able to snag him in the mid rounds or later.
