Terry McLaurin is quietly working his way into DeAndre Hopkins territory

Terry McLaurin, DeAndre Hopkins

The Washington Football Team may have had a series of quarterback changes all throughout the 2020 NFL season but wide receiver Terry McLaurin has been a steady staple in the team’s offense. If he continues on his current rate that he’s going, he might end up with over 100 receptions and 1,400 receiving yards by the end of the season, as per James Koh.

The feat, if successfully achieved, can be comparable to another prolific wide receiver in DeAndre Hopkins. The Arizona Cardinal finished with 111 receptions on 1,521 yards back in the 2015 season and even exceeded it in 2018 when he tallied career-best numbers of 115 catches and 1,572 yards.

Terry McLaurin finished his rookie campaign last season with 58 receptions for 919 yards and seven touchdowns, and was selected to the PFWA All-Rookie Team. He eventually inherited a bigger role in the team’s offense and was unanimously voted to be named team captain in lieu of former captain Landon Collins’ season-ending injury.

The former Ohio State Buckeye has already amassed a total of 692 receiving yards on 50 receptions and three scoring touchdowns through eight games played this season. Entering the midway mark of their campaign, the sophomore receiver will aim to ball out to help his team come out with a respectable showing in their remaining games.

Washington currently finds itself with a 2-6 record to nab second place in the lowly NFC East division. Despite their struggles, Terry McLaurin will continue to be a bright spot for the team and emerge as one of the best young stars of the league in the years to come.
