Dwayne Haskins will have at least one familiar face in Washington after the Redskins used the 13th pick in the third round on Terry McLaurin.

The 76th overall pick in the 2019 draft, McLaurin was one of Haskins’ top targets last season in Columbus as Haskins set numerous passing records for the school and Big Ten.

McLaurin is the 43rd Ohio State receiver drafted in the common era — including teammate Parris Campbell, who was taken in the second round Friday night by the Colts.

Dre’Mont Jones is headed west.

The Denver Broncos drafted the Ohio State defensive lineman in the third round with the 71st overall pick.

He is the fourth Ohio State player drafted this year and the second defensive lineman, joining No. 2 overall pick Nick Bosa, who is headed to San Francisco.

The All-Big Ten tackle had 13 tackles for loss last season, including nine sacks.

He is the 13th defensive tackle drafted from Ohio State in the common era (since 1967) and the first since Adolphus Washington (Buffalo) in 2016. Washington was also a third-rounder.

The only other Ohio State DT taken in the draft in the last 10 years is Johnathan Hankins, who was a second-round pick of the Giants in 2013.

Jones is the 10th Ohio State player drafted by the Broncos and the first since tight end Jeff Heuerman in 2015.

The first was offensive tackle Mike Current in the third round in 1967.


Parris Campbell is the first Ohio State player taken in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Indianapolis Colts used the 59th pick to select the speedy receiver from Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary High School.

He is the third Buckeye drafted this year — following Nick Bosa and Dwayne Haskins — and the 42nd OSU receiver drafted in the common era (since 1967).

That includes seven in the last 10 years and seven second rounders.

The last second-round receiver from Ohio State was Curtis Samuel, who was the 40th overall pick in 2017 by the Panthers.

Also notably taken in the second round was Michael Thomas, who was the 47th overall pick by the Saints in 2016.

Thomas has gone on to become one of the best receivers in the NFL as his 321 receptions are the most by a player in his first three seasons in the league.

He led the league with 125 catches last season and made the All-Pro team for the first time.

Campbell is the 21st Ohio State player drafted by the Colts organization, which began in Baltimore.

Nine of those picks have come since 2003, including second-rounders Mike Doss, Jack Mewhort and Tyquan Lewis.
