The accolades keep pouring in for Washington Commanders' talented wide receiver, Terry McLaurin.

Just recently, McLaurin secured a spot on the prestigious NFL Network's top 100 players list, debuting at an impressive No. 94. This accolade marks McLaurin's inaugural appearance on this esteemed roster, solidifying his status as a rising star in the league.

McLaurin's trajectory has been nothing short of remarkable. Last summer, he inked a lucrative three-year extension, instantly establishing himself as one of the highest-paid wide receivers in the NFL at the time. The deal proved to be a wise investment as McLaurin delivered a stellar performance, reeling in an impressive 77 passes for 1,191 yards and five touchdowns.

It's worth noting that McLaurin achieved these impressive feats amidst a challenging environment. Throughout his four-year NFL career, he has played alongside an astounding ten different starting quarterbacks. Despite this adversity, McLaurin's numbers speak for themselves - 299 receptions, 4,281 yards, and an impressive 21 touchdowns. One can only imagine the heights he could reach with a stable quarterback situation.

This offseason, McLaurin consistently ranked among the NFL's top 10 wide receivers, earning recognition as one of the best in the highly competitive NFC East. Some experts even argue that he surpasses the likes of Philadelphia's A.J. Brown, solidifying McLaurin's position as the cream of the crop in his division.

Looking ahead, McLaurin's prospects are incredibly promising. Set to catch passes from quarterback Sam Howell in 2023, fans eagerly anticipate the electrifying connection that awaits them. If their Week 18 collaboration serves as a preview of what's to come, McLaurin is poised to make even more jaw-dropping plays down the field this season.
