Maryland senior WR Deon Long would start on TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline's "all underrated team."
"He’s accomplished in all areas of the game; as a pass catcher, blocker and run after the catch guy," the expert wrote. "He also offers decent size and sprinters speed. I feel he deserves a middle round grade and could end up under drafted next April." Unfortunately, work ethic is one area of the game in which Long has come up short recently. Maryland coach Randy Edsall called him out earlier this month after a few lackluster practices. "Deon's got to get a lot better," Edsall told reporters. "I'm not happy with the way Deon is practicing right now." Long missed nearly nine months of action after suffering a broken tibia last season, so a little rust is to be expected. Aug 17 - 10:33 PM

Maryland coach Randy Edsall called out senior WR Deon Long after Thursday's practice.

"Deon's got to get a lot better," Edsall told reporters. "I'm not happy with the way Deon is practicing right now." Long missed nearly nine months after suffering a broken tibia last season. He recorded 32 receptions for 289 yards and a touchdown before sustaining the injury. Edsall clearly believes it's a lack of effort, as opposed to rust, that is stalling Long's improvement. Long and Stefon Diggs are expected to form one of the Big 10's best receiving duos in 2014.
