Detroit Lions: 10 under the radar Senior Bowl prospects
Offense North Team
Terry McLaurin, WR, Ohio St., 6-0, 205, 4.53
McLaurin is another guy that has immediately caught the eye of observers down South covering the game. His connection with Duke quarterback, Daniel Jones, has been noted by more than one writer. McLaurin had over 700 yards receiving for the Buckeyes and an eye-popping eleven touchdowns, all on just 35 receptions according to Sports Reference.
Spoken of very highly for his work ethic, McLaurin has also been noted for having great route running and hands. He seems like the kind of steady, blue-collar player general manager Bob Quinn has always gravitated towards.
McLaurin could be drafted in the middle to later rounds, which would make him a good player to target. But a strong performance at the Senior Bowl and the rest of the pre-draft process could put McLaurin into a higher round.
Others of note
UCLA tight end Caleb Wilson is another North player who has been productive and won’t cost too much but addresses a need. Ryan Finley, the North Carolina State quarterback, is an honorable mention being a mid-round prospect who could provide depth behind Matthew Stafford. Dexter Williams, the Notre Dame running back, is a similar option for backing up Kerryon Johnson.
