Rutgers Ohio St Football

Ohio State wide receiver Terry McLaurin, left, grabs a touchdown pass over Rutgers defensive back Blessaun Austin during the first half of an NCAA college football game Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016, in Columbus, Ohio. 

The Washington Redskins got Dwayne Haskins a familiar face to help out in the third round of the NFL draft.

Washington used the No. 76 overall selection to take Ohio State's Terry McLaurin, a wide receiver who caught 11 touchdown passes from Haskins as a member of the Buckeyes last year.

Haskins, a quarterback, was the team's first selection. Haskins left Columbus after his redshirt sophomore season, while McLaurin spent five years at Ohio State.

McLaurin should be able to jump right in. The Redskins have a lack of depth at the wide receiver position, and lost slot receiver Jamison Crowder in free agency.

With the pick, the Redskins have systematically addressed three of their biggest needs with their first three picks.
