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."

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.

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.

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."

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs should return to school so he can "prove his durability and give his stock a big boost," according to NFL.com's Charles Davis.

"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," Davis wrote. "He's battled injuries, and another year with the Terrapins would give him a chance to have that big year that has eluded him." Terps coach Randy Edsall said Wednesday that Diggs hasn't decided if he'll enter the NFL Draft. The Maryland wideout, who grades out as a mid-round pick, has posted 52 catches for 654 yards and five touchdowns despite missing a few games to suspension and injury.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs hasn't decided if he'll enter the NFL Draft, coach Randy Edsall said Wednesday.

Edsall told the media that he's submitted Diggs' information to the NFL advisory board, and "made calls to several general managers and college scouting directors to inquire about Diggs," according to the Washington Post. "Once we get the information back from the NFL, I’m going to sit down with his mom and him and go over all of the information that I have and present it to them. I’ll give them my opinion, and then ultimately Stefon and his family have to make the decision that they feel would be the best for him," Edsall said. Diggs currently has 52 catches for 654 yards and five touchdowns. The Maryland wideout has missed the past three games, the first because of suspension and the other two after suffering a lacerated kidney. Diggs has "been chomping at the bit" to return in the Foster Farms Bowl against Stanford on Dec. 30, Edsall said. Diggs grades out as a mid-round pick.

The Washington Post reports that Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs will return to practice on Friday.

The Maryland wideout was forced to miss the past two games of the regular season due to a lacerated kidney. Diggs suffered the injury to his kidney during Maryland’s road win at Penn State on November 1st.

Maryland junior WR Stephon Diggs (kidney) will not play against Michigan on Saturday.

The receiver is currently rehabbing from a lacerated kidney and has not practiced this week. The Maryland coaching staff had already insinuated that it was very possible that Diggs would miss the rest of the regular season, so his absence in the second-to-last game doesn't come as much of a surprise.

Maryland HC Randy Edsall wouldn't comment on junior WR Stefon Diggs' kidney injury, saying "We'll move forward next week."

"I don't comment on injuries," Edsall said adding that "we're in pretty good shape right now" and "what we've got to do is enhance where we are." Diggs suffered a lacerated kidney against Penn State on November 1 and it has been widely reported that the receiver will most likely miss the rest of the season. He wouldn't have played on Saturday, anyway, as he's currently serving a suspension for pushing an official in a pre-game scrum with the Nittany Lions. Quarterback C.J. Brown feels that the team will be OK. "That's the beauty of having depth, guys who have experience. The offense isn't going to change too much." With the NFL Draft looming, it's possible Diggs has played his last game for the Terrapins.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs will likely miss the remainder of the season due to a lacerated kidney, according to Matt Zenitz.

Zenitz clarifies Diggs will miss at least the end of the regular season. The receiver was injured against Penn State, and the ailment was previously described as a midsection injury. He was set to be suspended for a game after contacting an official, but that might never happen if Diggs decides to declare for the NFL. He suffered a major leg injury last year.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs might miss more action beyond his one game suspension after suffering a midsection injury against Penn State.

Diggs remained on the field for some time after taking a hit to his "kidney area" in the fourth quarter when diving into the endzone. Diggs remained in the game. The receiver missed a considerable amount of time last season due to a broken fibula.

The Big Ten suspended Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs for one game after Diggs made contact with an official prior to Saturday's game against Penn State

Diggs and other Maryland players were involved in a pre-game incident with Penn State, and the receiver's right hand made contact with an official's face. He was not ejected from the game, but conference officials determined the action warranted a suspension. Diggs will miss next Saturday's tilt against Michigan State. As a player, he's a burner whose best attribute is his straight-line speed, comparable to somebody like Ted Ginn Jr., as CBS Sports Dane Brugler noted over the summer.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught six balls for 53 yards in Saturday's 20-19 win over Penn State.

Diggs is most often compared to Ted Ginn Jr. This is because he is a linear athlete; that is, he can beat a defense deep, or take a kick return to the house, if he has a straight-line path to the end zone. The 6-foot, 190-pounder will eventually find a role in the NFL, but his inability to pick up chunk yardage in less-than-ideal circumstances limits his future effectiveness, as well as his draft value.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught nine passes for 130 yards and a touchdown in the school's 38-31 win over Iowa.

Diggs took a screen pass 53 yards for a touchdown, showcasing vision and straight-line speed. This might not be a common opinion, but Diggs is a linear athlete and his role might be impacted because of it. There has been no indication if he will declare for the draft or not.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught seven passes for 52 yards and a touchdown in a 52-24 loss to Ohio State on Saturday.

Caleb Rowe's four-yard scoring pass to Diggs pulled the Terps to within three touchdowns early in the fourth quarter. Needing a perfect 13 minutes of football to give themselves any sort of a chance, Rowe threw a pick-six five minutes later to eliminate any chance of victory. With his seven catches today, Diggs is left with 36 catches, two more than he had last year in an injury-shortened campaign. He's also got 450 yards and three touchdowns.
