Vikings selected Maryland WR Stefon Diggs with the No. 146 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Diggs (6'0/195) was a five-star recruit out of high school, but endured a disappointing and injury-plagued college career. He posted 2,227 yards and 14 TDs on 150 catches (14.8 YPR), missing time due to a suspension, lacerated kidney, and fractured leg. Diggs clocked 4.46 at the Combine, but disappointed in the vertical (35") and broad (9'7") jumps. Diggs will have to earn his NFL keep as a sub-package receiver and on special teams, where he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in college. May 2 - 2:14 PM

ESPN's Todd McShay believes Maryland WR Stefon Diggs "is a potential Day 2 pick because he is exceptional in one important trait -- the ability to create with the ball in his hands."

"He is a twitched-up wide receiver with really impressive stop-start ability and lateral agility, and while he doesn't have elite top-end speed, he is above average in this area and does possess elite initial burst (just a 4.46 40-yard dash, but an excellent 1.53-second 10-yard split)," McShay wrote. "He almost always makes the first defender miss either after the catch or as a returner (which might end up being his best role in the pros), and he can string together multiple moves with the ball in his hands." The analyst clarifies that Diggs "isn't likely to go in the first two rounds" because of his size and health concerns, but calls him a "big-time playmaker in the open field" who could be a potential steal. The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs was called the "sleeper favorite" of Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score metric.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs "has the skills to be a productive NFL receiver" despite a lackluster collegiate career, notes CBS Sports' Pete Prisco.

"He is also a capable return man," Prisco wrote. "A team using a mid-round pick on him might end up with a steal. The talent is there." The analyst is far from the only person who thinks so, which is why it's basically impossible to peg where Diggs will go in the draft. Diggs was dubbed "Playmaker's 2015 sleeper favorite" by Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score. The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs recorded forty times of 4.46 and 4.50 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

ESPN's Todd McShay is concerned about Maryland WR Stefon Diggs's durability, but writes that there's "a lot to like about his game."

"He is special with the ball in his hands, with impressive stop-start ability, lateral agility, shiftiness in the open field and the top-end speed to hit the home run when he catches a crease," McShay wrote. "He's a zone-buster who can locate soft spots underneath but also threaten vertically with his speed. He's a very good return specialist as well." Diggs is a former stud recruit coming off an up-and-down college career who was dubbed "Playmaker's 2015 sleeper favorite" by Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score. The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs recorded forty times of 4.46 and 4.50 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs is scheduled to visit the Dolphins, according to Aaron Wilson.

Diggs also visited the 49ers and has met with the Patriots. It was a somewhat rocky career for Diggs, who flashed plenty of promise as a freshman until a major leg injury derailed his sophomore campaign. It seems the NFL still views Diggs as an intriguing slot receiver. His biggest contribution could come on returns early on.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs "ran scissor-sharp routes and caught the ball very well" at his pro day, according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

In the days surrounding the event, Diggs met with the New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. Standing on his forty time, Diggs timed 4.11 seconds in the short shuttle, besting his combine time by almost two-tenths of a second. Diggs was recently dubbed "Playmaker's 2015 sleeper favorite" by Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs met with the New England Patriots after his pro day, according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs has the potential to be a weapon in the slot and contribute as a returner in the NFL. The biggest knock on the Maryland prospect is that Diggs has some durability concerns. Diggs dealt with season ending injuries the last two years in a row, with a broken leg and lacerated kidney.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs has been dubbed "Playmaker's 2015 sleeper favorite."

Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score ranks Diggs as the No. 10 receiver, ahead of far more heralded prospects like Devin Funchess, Phillip Dorsett and Dorial Green-Beckham. The model apparently gave Diggs much credit for his huge freshman campaign -- when he caught 54 passes for 848 yards and six touchdowns while also rushing for 114 yards on 20 attempts -- while Maryland attempted only 304 passes due to playing three freshman quarterbacks. "He is regarded as only a mid- to late-round prospect by conventional wisdom because his sophomore and junior years were marred by injury and inconsistency," wrote FO's Nathan Forster. "It's true that these injury concerns could return to haunt Diggs' professional career, but at a low price, the upside that Diggs teased as a freshman is well worth the gamble." Playmaker compares the former five-star recruit to Antonio Brown and Az-Zahir Hakim.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs is scheduled to visit the 49ers in early April, according to Aaron Wilson.

Diggs received a lot of attention early in his Maryland career, but a serious leg injury in 2013 and a disappointing 2014 has stalled that buzz. This might surprise you, but Diggs tested like a below average athlete for his size. He is a straight-line role player in the NFL, and will likely be selected on the third day.
Mar 24 - 10:32 AM

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs has a scheduled a visit with the San Francisco 49ers in April, according to the Baltimore Suns' Aaron Wilson.

The 49ers are looking to add some depth to their receiver corps, with the departure of WR Michael Crabtree and Stevie Johnson, San Francisco recently signed former Raven and former Terrapins' WR Torrey Smith. The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs has the potential to play in the slot and contribute as a returner at the next level. However, Diggs has some durability concerns as he dealt with injuries over the last two seasons.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs is "a potential first-rounder" on "his best tape," according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

"But Diggs has been dogged by injuries over his time at Maryland," Kiper wrote. "But teams will see that good tape, and he could land here." The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs recorded forty times of 4.46 and 4.50 at the NFL Scouting Combine. We see him as almost exclusively a straight-line player, like a poor man's Ted Ginn Jr.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs recorded forty times of 4.46 and 4.50 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

A decent -- but not breathtaking -- showing by the 6-foot, 195-pounder, especially since he is almost exclusively a straight-line player, like a poor man's Ted Ginn Jr. Diggs made a mistake in leaving school early. We'll let TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline explain why: "Most [NFL teams] grade Diggs as a last day pick and feel another season on the college field would’ve potentially pushed him into the draft’s initial 75 selections."
Feb 21 - 10:16 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that the "general consensus from scouts at the Shrine Game is Maryland receiver Stefon Diggs made a big mistake entering the draft, an opinion I concur with."

Diggs declared for the draft earlier this month. "Most grade Diggs as a last day pick and feel another season on the college field would’ve potentially pushed him into the draft’s initial 75 selections," Pauline wrote. We don't mean to pile on, but we're with Pauline. Diggs is a straight-line player, similar to Ted Ginn Jr. but not quite as good a prospect.
Jan 14 - 1:22 PM

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs will declare for the NFL Draft.

You will read in many places that Diggs is explosive and a big play threat, and some might even call him a top three-round receiver. We do not see that. Diggs earned a lot of praise early in his career and perhaps a couple of major injuries screwed up his game. We view Diggs as a straight-line prospect who will have to have touches manufactured for him.
Jan 3 - 2:55 PM

Maryland head coach Randy Edsall said junior WR Stefon Diggs will make a decision about the NFL Draft after the school's game against Stanford in the Foster Farms Bowl on Tuesday.

Edsall said he met Thursday with Diggs and his mother to share information he had received from NFL types about the receiver's draft stock. "I gave them all the information that I had," Edsall said. "I asked them if they had any questions, and they did. And they asked me for my opinion, and I gave them my opinion of what I think he should do. And I asked him if he’s leaning any way at all, and he said that he wasn’t, that he wants to play the game, and he’ll worry about it after the game is over. So we’ll see." A kidney injury has kept Diggs sidelined for the past three games, but Edsall confirmed he will play on Tuesday. Earlier this month, NFL.com's Charles Davis wrote that Diggs should return to school: "Diggs has been well-hyped since his high school days, but he's not yet had the breakout year we've been waiting to see from him."
