2019[edit]

McLaurin was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the third round with the 76th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.[10][11] This move reunited him with his former college quarterback, Dwayne Haskins, who the team selected earlier in the same draft. He signed his four-year rookie contract with the team on June 6, 2019.[12]

At the conclusion of the preseason, head coach Jay Gruden named Richardson and McLaurin the starting wide receivers to begin the season, with Quinn operating as the slot receiver. McLaurin made his NFL playing debut and first career start in the opening game of the 2019 season against the Philadelphia Eagles. There, he recorded five catches for 125 yards, including a 69-yard touchdown.[13] In Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys, McLaurin caught five passes for 62 yards and one touchdown.[14] In Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears, McLaurin caught six passes for 70 yards and one touchdown.[15] This made him the first player in league history to catch at least five passes and a touchdown in their first three career games.[16]

In Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins, McLaurin caught four passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns as the Redskins won their first game of the season.[17] During Week 15 against the Eagles, McLaurin finished with five catches for 130 receiving yards, including a 75-yard touchdown.[18] He finished the season with 58 receptions for 919 yards and seven touchdowns and was named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team.[19]

2020[edit]
