Terry McLaurin will strap on his Ohio State helmet one more time with a chance to impress NFL scouts in one more game later this month.
The former Ohio State wide receiver was one of eight players selected Friday as one of the final additions to this year's roster for the Senior Bowl, which is scheduled for Jan. 26 in Mobile, Alabama.
McLaurin is coming off a strong senior season for the Buckeyes in which he caught 35 passes for 701 yards and 11 touchdowns, all career-highs.
The Indianapolis native's biggest selling points to NFL scouts might not be what he can do with the ball in his hands, however, but what he can do without it. McLaurin was excellent as both a blocker and special teams player for Ohio State; specifically, Urban Meyer named McLaurin earlier this season as the best punt gunner he has ever coached. A two-time captain for the Buckeyes, McLaurin is also a highly regarded leader who should impress scouts with his maturity and character.
As of now, McLaurin is the only Ohio State draft prospect who has been announced as a participant for the Senior Bowl or any of this year's pre-draft all-star games. Fellow Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell was also invited to the Senior Bowl, but declined his invitation.
