Projected Draft Range: Day three

I would take him in the: fourth round

One sentence bio: Senior Bowl participant who was originally invited because of special-teams abilities.

One sentence scouting report: Extremely athletic receiver who is surprisingly nuanced in his route running and matched it with excellent production during his final season at Ohio State.

One play:

How he fits in KC: How does a receiver that averaged 20 yards per catch and scored 11 touchdowns in his final season get little buzz by the end of his final season? McLaurin wasn’t looked at as more than a potential special-teams ace mere months ago, but his ascension through the draft process has positioned him to potential day-two consideration.

McLaurin is a well-regarded, high-character player who has continued to prove people wrong at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine. His route running is advanced, and he showed consistent separation in Mobile. McLaurin has the potential to be a downfield threat with his 4.35 40-yard dash speed and ability to separate at the top of his route. He showed explosive ability in Columbus but was overlooked as a product of the system, surrounded by exceptional talent. The more you see McLaurin away from the system, the more you realize he could be a potential value. The Chiefs would be getting a quality person who can develop into a downfield threat in the passing game and immediately make an impact in the locker room and and on special teams.
